The Camungo Observation Tower is located just 10 mintues downstream the Madre de Dios river from Tambo Blanquillo Lodge. This observation tower on top of a Kapok tree (Ceiba pentandra) at 50 meters from the ground is the highest and most stunning of the entire Manu region.
A steel staircase leads to the observation deck made out of wood, which from you can see the movement of birds, mainly macaws, early in the morning on their way to the Macaw Clay Lick. Here you can also see rare species frequently, as the harpy eagle (Harpia harpyja) nesting or better yet, in full hunt as also the king vulture (Sarcoramphus papa) of the jungle. One of the most spectacular views of this tower is towards the Camungo oxbow lake, another of our attractions, home to a huge number of birds and other species such as caimans and Giant River Otters (Pteronura brasiliensis).
