Amazon Wildlife Peru is an Ecotourism travel company that organizes exotic destinations tours to Manu National Park, specifically to see and enjoy wildlife in undeveloped, relatively undisturbed natural areas, as well as giving an insight into the indigenous culture of the jungle. With the reality and dangers of global warming in mind, we dedicate a lot of time and effort to try and ensure the conservation of the world´s natural resources and biodiversity. We work directly with local people and groups in the jungle like: Matsiguenkas, Yines; which provides employment and significant benefits for local residents. We carefully manage our tours to minimize negative impacts on the environment and local culture. It is very important for us that money is reinvested in the jungle, so as to ensure the continuation of life here to benefit the indigenous people, who rely on tourism as a source of income, and also for the benefit of future tourists.
