Manu Peruvian Amazon Trip 8D/7N

The Manu National Park is a protected natural space, located in the southeast of Peru. Partially located in the departments of Madre de Dios and Cusco; in the provinces of Paucartambo and Manu. If Machu Picchu is the jewel in the crown of our country in terms of Inca culture; Manu National Park is number one in the category of jungle and wild nature. It is a magical place, isolated and one of the last bastions of this fragile ecosystem that still remains practically intact and you will be to explore experiencing this Manu Peruvian Amazon trip.

This 8-day tour in the Manu jungle will allow you to explore the most remote and untouched part of this part of the Peruvian jungle. Leisurely explore the Otorongo, Salvador, Camungo and Blanquillo oxbow lakes. Taking these 8-day trip to the deepest part of Manu national park, gives you the opportunity to visit the Maquinachayoc mammal clay lick and the Blanquillo macaw clay lick; two of the most amazing spots in Manu to observe wildlife. Observe animals in their natural habitat and without any kind of contact with civilization. Observe black and white caimans, giant river otters, turtles, deer, tapirs, macaws, peccaries, capybaras, monkeys, birds of all kinds and with a bit of luck jaguars, panthers, ocelots and pumas. Without a doubt, this 8-day trip to Manu will allow you to observe the best of one of the most biodiverse jungles in the world.

The Manu Biosphere Reserve: is divided into several areas that should be understood so as not to lead to misunderstandings. These are the Manu National Park and the Manu Cultural Zone.

Manu National Park is the largest area with 100% protection and in turn it is also divided into two more zones.

The intangible zone: Is where the “uncontacted” tribes live in voluntary isolation; and where one of the world renowned biological stations, called: Cocha Cashu. As a tourist you are not allowed to access this area; since it is dedicated only to research and a special permit is required. It is located from the Pakitza checkpoint to the limits of the Manu river.

The reserved area or buffer zone: where tourism has access only through the 8 agencies that have special permission. It goes from the confluence of the Alto Madre de Dios and Manu rivers, called Boca Manu to the Pakitza checkpoint.

Manu cultural zone:, It is located on the right bank of the Alto Madre de Dios river; and some of its tributaries. Matsiguenka communities live here; and the level of protection is not as high as in the Manu National Park. Tourism is also allowed here; although, as its name suggests, it is based more on knowing the local cultures than on wildlife observation.

Trip overview of our Manu Peruvian Amazon Trip 

  • Trek Type: Connection with nature. Wildlife observation. Typical jungle food and walks in the jungle.

Also you will observe green and blue parrots and parakeets and perhaps to their predators such as the black hawk and jaguar.

There are some nutrients that Amazonian animals simply cannot get from the leaves or fruits. While scientists are still arguing about what it is, it’s probably salt. After all, living far from the salty Atlantic Ocean, and separated from the nearby Pacific by gigantic Andean mountains, means that salt is hard to come by here in the Amazon Rainforest. It is hardly on the ground, neither in the rain nor in the rivers. So the animals in the jungle need to find a way to get sodium. The way many animals do this is eating clay. In fact, that’s where the Mammal clay licks and macaw clay licks in the Manu national park are the perfect spots to watch animals.

Following, you will go to the Blanquillo lodge to have a nutritious breakfast. Then you will walk for 1 hour to the Blanquillo oxbow lake to spot giant otters, black caimans and around 600 types of birds.

These are the most used vaccines to travel to the Manu Peruvian Amazon Trip

In this post, we cite the vaccines to travel to the Peruvian jungle; according to the activity that the traveler will perform in these jungle areas. In addition, the information was consulted from important sources such as: the websites of the Ministry of Health of Peru; and also of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention of the United States. Keep informing yourself!
Although at the Jorge Chavez Airport you will not be asked about your vaccination status; in some countries they do require a vaccination certificate. Therefore it is better to be prevented and to inform yourself: in the authorized International Vaccination Center of your country; about what you should apply before traveling.
Remember, that vaccines avoid possible infectious problems during the trip; and also to keep your immunizations up to date.

What animal could infect you in the jungle?

Well, mosquitoes are the bearers of the fearsome diseases; causing deaths on the planet. We are talking about insect bites infected with: Malaria, Yellow Fever and even Dengue.
It is probably, the most dangerous animal in the Amazon rainforest; even more than piranhas, anacondas or fierce jaguars.
Without vaccination, even the bite of an infected mosquito; could ruin your vacation.

What do the authorities tell us about getting vaccinated?

According to the website of the Ministry of Health of Peru (MINSA). The risks of contracting Malaria, is latent in many areas of Peru. With the exception of the departments of: Arequipa, Moquegua, Puno, Tacna, Lima and in its surroundings; nor in the high tourist areas like: Cusco, Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca. Likewise, Puerto Maldonado and the Manu National Park and other endemic geographical areas of Peru; are mentioned as a risk zone.

If you travel to the Peruvian jungle, it is better to consult the doctor who keeps your health history; at least 4 weeks before, making the trip. So that the doctor explains you, about the type of vaccine that you should apply; and how long does it take to take effect on the body.

In the case of the Peruvian Ministry of Health; the Yellow Fever vaccine and Malaria prophylaxis: in risk areas is recommended.

On the other hand, on the website of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention of the United States (or CDC). It recommends to travelers that they will visit Peru; some important vaccines depending on particular cases.

For example, considering the type of tourism to be made; travel time or direct contact with animals or people: due to visits for study or scientific purposes.

THESE ARE THE VACCINES TO TRAVEL TO THE JUNGLE OF PERU

Under this order of ideas; these are the vaccines referred by the CDC:

  • Hepatitis A: Vaccination is recommended to all travelers to Peru.
  • Hepatitis B: Vaccination is recommended to all people traveling to Peru. Especially those who may have exposure to blood or body fluids: through the granting or receipt of medical care, drug injections, tattoos; or sexual contact with the local population.
  • Typhoid Fever: Vaccination is recommended to all visitors; to tropical areas of South America. Especially for those who remain in rural areas; where exposure could occur due, to the consumption of contaminated food or water.
  • Yellow Fever: The vaccine against this viral infection; is highly recommended for trips to the Amazon and the southern Amazon basin. The vaccination should be administered, at least 10 days before your arrival; and at 10-year intervals, if you decide to stay.
  • Rabies: Vaccination is only recommended for individuals; with a higher risk of exposure in the performance of their work. Which often develops for prolonged periods; in areas considered high risk for this disease.
    Let us mention, the case of veterinarians or wildlife researchers; whose occupation requires them to have direct contact with bats, dogs, stray cats, or other mammals.
  • Where to get vaccinated in Lima? The International Vaccination Center; is located in the city of Lima, Avenida del ejército, block 17: San Isidro district.
