DAY1 : Cuzco to Pilcopata:
We'll depart Cusco in our private expedition van, and drive all day through. The bus stops frequently during the trip, to permit short visits to small Andean towns (the Inca- towers of Ninamarca, and the colonial village of Paucartambo). Then, we'll climb up to 3900 m.a.s.l. to then dive into the Manu Reserve. Here is where the exploration of the incredible range of cloud forest habitats begins, We'll be able to see orchids, primitive ferns, etc., and wildlife, such as our national bird, the cock of the rock, and hopefully, the woolly monkey. In the evening we'll arrive to the village of Pilcopata, where we'll stay in a typical lodge. Showers and toilets available. Private Lodge is also an option.

DAY 2 : Pilcopata to Soga de Oro Lodge:
Today, after breakfast we'll still have a one and a half hour ride to Atalaya, where we'll take our boat to our Lodge, situated on the banks of the mighty river Alto Madre de Dios. Here we'll spend the day, exploring the surrounding area with very interesting trails, that will show us this amazing ecosystem, in the form of a mysterious swamp, where we can see the prehistoric Hoatzin, some Caimans, Capybaras, Dusky Titi monkeys, and different species of birds. We'll also have the opportunity to swim in the river. After dinnertime, we'll be able to hear various sounds of the Amazonian night, like the Night Monkey, the World's only nocturnal primate; the Kalinowski Rat; Great Potoos and the Pigmy Owl; we'll also take a look for spiders and frogs. Showers and toilets available.

DAY 3: Soga de Oro Lodge:
After a comfortable night sleep in our Lodge, we will leave for a 3 hours walk, to explore the deeper jungle. Here we'll have the opportunity to find a wide array of creatures, which live more hidden in the forest. Also, we'll find many medicinal plants, which are used for all imaginable cures, by the local people. If we're lucky, we'll also be able to spot some big animals, like Jaguars, Puma's, Swine, Ant-eaters etcetera Back in the lodge, after lunch, we have the opportunity to choose to go for a refreshing swim in the river, or a comfortable bath in the lodge. After some good relaxation, we'll go for a trip over the lake, with a big wooden raft. Around us, you'll be able to see birds in transit. We'll be back at the lodge before dinner. Optional night walk afterwards.

DAY 4: Soga de Oro Lodge to Cusco:
15 minutes boat ride down the river to observe loudly screaming green parrots, where many different species of parrots, parakeets and some macaws give a colorful show. After returning of the parrot clay lick, your guide is available to further explain about the forest. After all this, we'll take our motorized boat back to the lodge, for our last breakfast in the jungle. Then, we'll continue by boat to Atalaya, where our vehicle we'll be awaiting us for the ride back to Cusco, to be back in the late afternoon or the early evening.
