Few jungle lodges can boast birding opportunities as incredible as those found at the Pantiacolla Lodge on the edge of Manú National Park. Nearly 600 species of birds have been observed near the lodge and there is an extensive trail network in the 900 hectares of adjacent rainforest where guests can explore various habitat types and catch glimpses of monkeys, coati, deer and other animals.
The lodge itself is a complex of wooden cabins on stilts connected by paths leading through exotic gardens. It is owned by a family of long-standing rainforest pioneers in conjunction with conservation organizations and contains basic but comfortable accommodations. There are 16 beds in all, each one protected with a mosquito net, and both private and communal bathroom facilities are available.
The lodge is set in the midst of lush rainforest on bluffs overlooking the Alto Madre de Dios River and at the base of the Pantiacolla Mountains. It lies at the edge of Manú National Park, one of the Amazon's finest ecotourism destinations, in a region with an astonishing diversity of bird species. Nearby there is a macaw clay lick, hot springs and an extensive trail network for observing wildlife.
