Manu "outside of the reserve"/ cheaper ways of seeing Manu

I just looked on Peru-Planet's web-site and saw that they have a trip to Manu which is outside of the reserve. No price was quoted, but it is supposed to be much cheaper than within the reserve. Does anyone know exactly what it means to be "outside of the reserve".

I'm looking for a less expensive way of seeing Manu.

What is really known as the Manu Reserve is not authorized for tourism, only for biologist with special permits.

In other words, all the Lodges in Manu are outside the "Reserve"
