Located in the heart of the Manu National Park, the Manu Learning Centre isn’t just for research and advice, there is accommodation, built in the style of the local Machiguenga tribe and set just above the river.
Up to 36 guests can be comfortably housed in 'pods' linked by raised wooden walkways. En-suite bathrooms are planned for the 2014 season, and in the meantime a fully functioning bathroom block includes western toilets and hot running water.
The learning centre is an Amazonian Mecca, which creates a little something different for its guests, mealtimes are even communal which makes for a real friendly atmosphere with researchers, volunteers and guests coming together throughout their stay to share stories and experiences.
Environmental sustainability is a cornerstone of the ethos at Manu Learning Centre; solar power, gravity-fed water pumps and recycling all help to achieve this aim.
