Part 05/11 of Glenn Bartley’s 3-month trip around Peru – At this point I had reached the end of the road…literally.

All travel deeper in to the park would require a boat. I managed to join a tour group to move on down the river – WAY down the river.

We took the boat several hundred kilometers into the jungle and into the Manu National Park reserved zone.

This is an area that is strictly protected from logging and hunting and is truly pristine.

Some of the highlights for me in the reserved zone were the Agami Heron, Horned Screamer, Red and Green Macaw and a family of Giant Otters!

Hi Glenn, Nice work! Do you know Bernard Scott? He’s a great naturalist, birder and artist now living in Lima. He’s traveled extensively in Peru and Ecuador, might make a good contact.
