Madre de Dios

A visit to Manu National Park and Tambopata National Reserve in Madre de Dios means setting foot in a National World Heritage Site and an enormous natural protected area, but it also means hearing the songs of 600 varieties of exotic birds, being transported by the exhilarating colors of 1200 kinds of butterflies, and discovering that a single place can be home to 100 species of mammals. And these are just a few of the wonders that await you in the lush rainforest of the southern Amazon, where the Madre de Dios region proudly boasts immense natural reserves, meandering rivers and a vast array of wildlife.
