Amazon Wild 4days/3N .
The park retains healthy populations of jaguar , tapir, anteater, black caiman and giant otter. Among the 13 species of monkey in this UNESCO Biosphere, lives the unique pigmy marmoset, the smallest monkey in the world, and the nocturnal night monke Because of Manu’s low human population and their continued use of traditional hunting techniques, the animals in the park show little fear of man and are more readily approachable
than in many other rainforest locations, offering unparalleled animal watching opportunities. Manu rainforest itself also boasts the biggest clay lick of the continent’s largest land animal, the 250-kilo lowland tapir, and Peru’s most‘photographable’ macaw clay lick. Now on the World Heritage List, Manu also houses the highest bird, mammal, and plant diversity of any park on Earth, including 1,000 of the world’s 9,700 bird species, 200 species of mammals, and 15,000 species of flowering plants. Besides rainforest, the park has two other highly distinct ecosystems: cloud forest and high altitude paramo and Therefore has a wide range of climates : from the cold in the highlands to the hot in Amazon rainforest. Not all lodges open year round, as there is a rainy season from December to March when many close .

ITINERARY OF AMAZON WILD 4 days / 3night .
Tours Day 1: Amazon Wild Cusco Ninamarca & Cloud Forest Pilcopata Lodge .
We leave Cusco early in the morning to start our adventurous trip! First, we are taken by private transport to the place called Ninamarca to observe pre-Incan “chullpas” (tombs) of the Lupaca’s culture. Then, we continue to Paucartambo, a colonial town with narrow streets and beautiful church, where people still keep
their old customs. Later, we ascend to Acjanaco Pass (3,550 masl) considered as an entrance to the Manu National Park and then we get to the viewpoint Tres Cruces de Oro (3,700 masl) to watch one of the best sunrises of the world! From there, we start descending to the edge of the Manu jungle passing first an elfin forest and there a cloud forest where we can view a cock of the rock, hummingbirds, strikingly coloured quetzals, trogons, spotted flycatcher and woolly monkey. From flora, we can view a variety of orchids, mosses, ferns, etc. Finally, we get to Pilcopata (700 masl) where our first accommodation – Tikari Lodge is placed. We can refresh ourselves there having a shower and after that, we are served dinner, before we get to bed.
Tours Day 2: pilcopata Atalaya Port to Rainforest Lodge – Amazon Wild.
After breakfast, we continue our journey by private car (one and half an hour) towards the port at Atalaya (500 m.a.s.l). There, we board a motorized boat to continue for about half an hour navigating on the Alto Madre de Dios River. Along the rocky riversides, we have a great opportunity to observe the river wildlife like
many birds, turtles or sunbathing lizards. In the afternoon, we reach our next lodge – Rainforest Lodge. Then we go to explore nearby paths where we can see a big diversity of species, for example, tarantulas, ants, butterflies, some monkey species, huge trees, erotic plants, palms, etc. After that, we return to our lodge to overnight.
Optional: A night walk in manu peruvian jungle.
Tours Day 3: Rainforest Lodge Machuwasi Lake to Amazon Wild.
We wake up very early today after having nice dreams to explore a deeper part of the Peruvian jungle getting to know its particular flora and fauna! This special place offers you an opportunity to view its endemic species hidden in the deep Manu as well as medicinal plants used by local native people to heal various sicknesses!! If we are lucky, we can also spot big animals such as a jaguar, a puma, wild boars, capybaras, anteaters, etc. After that, we get back to our lodge for lunch. Then, we have a short break to enjoy a refreshing bath in a river
or just relax in the lodge. In the afternoon, we go to visit Machuwasi Lake to check out a sail in “remos” (hollowed tree trunks used by natives of the area). This is a perfect way on how to watch a big diversity of local animal species such as a prehistoric bird called hoatzin, some caimans, capybaras or monkeys Tocon (Callicebus oenanthe). Later on, we return to the lodge to spend the night.
Optional: A night walk in manu peruvian jungle.
Tours Day 4: Amazon Wild to Rainforest Lodge & Parrot Clay Lick and Return Cusco City .
After breakfast, we board a motor boat taking us to a 10 minute far away clay-lick of parrots, budgerigars and aras (guacamayo) which is an unforgettable experience! After this activity, we return to the lodge to have
breakfast. Then we re-board our boat to start returning. Our first stop is in the Atalaya Port where our private vehicle awaits us to take us back to Cusco arriving there between 7 and 7:30 pm.

In the territory of the Mono Pichicos Amazon Wild.
Why some animals are abundant while others are not We are talking about wild animals and the question is asked by many scientists around the world. For example, it is logical that the number of carnivorous jaguars, tigers, and pumas is much smaller than that of herbivorous animals. While pasture, seed or fruit species directly harness energy by consuming the proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals found in plants, carnivores consume this energy indirectly when they gobble up other animals they inhabit this reserve from the Amazon Wild Manu. Therefore, for each puma to use a demonstrative figure there will be ten deer (major herbivores) or twenty vizcachas (smaller rodents). What is not yet well understood is why among species occupying similar ecological niches some are numerous while others are scarce. Dr. John Terborgh set out to seek an answer. In the 5 km2 of the study area of Cocha-Cashu Amazon Wild there are ten species of monkeys: the larger ones, like the maquisapa or the monkey preserve; the medium: machines or capuchins and puffins; and the small ones: pichicos and lions. In general, as we have seen, small animals are more abundant; however, in the case of the two species of monkey pichicos of only 450 g of weights breaks the norm. They are the eighth and ninth species, in numerical terms, in the Cocha-Cashu monkey population list. Terborgh decided to investigate why and, working with other scientists for long periods, made observations trying to clear the unknown. They first census the existing populations of pichicos, raising maps of the territory that occupies each group. This is how they determined that these monkeys defended a proportionally large area. While two larger species, stumps and musmuqui or nocturnal monkeys, dominate a territory of 6 to 12 Ha, the pichicos occupy areas from 30 to 120 Ha. The fact is that they protect these territories with energy and determination, given the good part of his time in patrolling the boundaries, announcing his presence with loud shrieks directed at potential contenders. This marked territoriality is not common among primates. Monkeys of varying sizes generally occupy different ecological floors: the maquisapas feed on the tops of the tallest trees in the forest, the friars and machines in the middle stratum, and the pichicos obtain their food consisting of fruits, nectar , insects, lizards and small frogs among shrubs and smaller lianas. Smaller animals also use a different method to feed themselves. While the big monkeys are looking for large, fruitful trees, and stop longer in each, small monkeys go “biting” here and there, using a greater number of plants that are developed in this reserve Wild .
Says Terborgh: “A large monkey can easily establish his domain by throwing the smallest of a tree that offers abundant fruit, because to be bigger they need more food. The small monkey, with a metabolism of smaller requirements, can be allowed to travel greater distances although obtains smaller results. It is a fact that can not access to trees of abundant productivity due to the presence of the largest ones; in turn, the larger ones can not get rid of the boys territorially because they do not have enough energy to visit many scattered plants. The result is a population balance in which diverse species cohabit in the same area and in which the number of individuals of each species reflects the amount of the different sources of food. In the course of studies to discover the motive of the territory as much as to expropriate the vast population of the pichicos as well as the small number of individuals per group, interesting discoveries were made about the social and reproductive system of the same. For a long time these monkeys had been considered as one of the examples) of monogamous fidelity among the apes, since they were believed to form pairs for life. However, as has been observed, the relationship is rather a “cooperative”. According to this “social contract”, relatively rare, two or more males charge harmoniously in raising the twin female babies. While the male members care for and protect the little ones from side to side, the liberated mother mobilizes by feeding. This is a vitally important issue, since during the lactation period the female needs to double the amount of food she normally eats. In exchange for their efforts for the sake of the offspring, during the season of zeal the female corresponds copulating with
tropical forest to get food at different times of the year. And for that reason they need to defend an extensive area, since if one of their environments is invaded they run the risk of starving Amazon Wildlife.
Amazon Wild – Manu Monkey Pichico – Prevents H epatitis.
Fifteen years ago, when you came to Pucallpa or Iquitos, you could see a lot of people with strange buns on the top of their heads. On certain occasions the impellers were in the nape of the neck. The surprise was great at the discovery of bright little eyes that looked from one of these bodoques, rare appendage of the tangled black hair. And when a white snout appeared and the ball moved suddenly, one asked the inevitable question: what is that? (Amazon Wild)
“I see you – I do not see you” A good portion of the Amazonian population used to have these animals as a pet, usually a gift from someone who had returned from an incursion into the mountain or had purchased it from some small boy in the market. The pichicos were generally captured being still very small, being orphaned as a result of the hunt that the parents are subject to. They were easy to raise, as they mostly ate a little fruit and seemed to be content to spend the whole day locked with soft firmness to the hair of their owner or, more commonly, their owner. In the mountain the pichicos are very vivacious, curious and restless. When they meet a human being they watch closely. Because they generally feed on the fruits of medium-height trees (rather than in the tall fronds of the upper forest, such as the larger monkeys: maquisapa, choro and monkey stump), it is relatively easy to run into they. In these encounters one should remain still in his position so as not to frighten them. Then these funny little monkeys begin to play the “I see you – I do not see you” of the creatures, moving their heads quickly on one side and the other on the stick to which they are caught, while communicating in a sharp chatter, as if commenting on one another the characteristics of the unfamiliar and “enormous animal” that they have in front (Amazon Wild).
Several species that inhabit the Amazon Wild.
There are several species of pichicos. The genus is Saguinus, from the family Callitrichidae (order Primates), represented in Peru by five species, three of which are 5. fuscicollis, S. mystaxy S. imperator. They are classified among the smallest monkeys in the world, being their average weight of 450 gr. The coat is dark. However, the various species have certain particular characteristics: e \ fuscicollis has a reddish part on its back; the mystax a very white snout that contrasts with the almost black color of the rest of his body; and the imperator is one of the most funny and strange monkeys: with his long white mustaches resembles a dignified and solemn Chinese Mandarin, which contrasts with its tiny size (Wild Amazon).
