Also known as Albergue Machiguenga, this is a simple but comfortable low-impact lodge located inside the Manu Park Wildlife Center. Nestled almost invisibly in the forest, it lies just across the river from the trail to Manu’s prime wildlife viewing location, Cocha (Lake) Salvador. This is the largest and most beautiful of the 13 oxbow lakes of the Manu River.
The Manu Wildlife Tented Camps offers spacious double-occupancy, walk-in tents with wooden floors and hinged, lockable doors and windows. Each tent measures 16.5x10x7 feet (5x3x2.2m), and all are fully screened, with a floor raised on wooden stilts to provide maximum ventilation and coolness, and protection from flooding and insects. A palm thatch roof shelter overhead completes the structure. Each of the extra-long twin beds has a mosquito net.
The camp also features an elevated, screened dining room with wooden floor, private warm-water showers and flush toilets.
