14 days from £2,179

Combine visits to Peru's top Andean Inca and colonial sights with a few days in the remote Amazon jungle within the Manú Biosphere Reserve. Far from any other lodges and facilities for visitors this experience offers you a real insight into the rainforest, its wildlife, tropical jungle vegetation and its indigenous people. 

Crees, (“conservation, research, environmental education towards sustainability”) which organises this adventure is a charitable foundation with lofty ambitions. It all sounds rather earnest but in fact you will have a wonderful, truly unique wildlife experience where you will learn a lot but also have plenty of fun. You’ll be travelling over large distances to enter a remote part of the rainforest.

If you prefer, you can stay a day longer to travel deeper into the rainforest.
