A mobile adhoc network (MANET) is a collection of wireless nodes without any central administrator. Because of the mobility of the network, a routing protocol is required to adopt the frequent changes in the network topology. A Quality of Service (QoS) protocol that supports real- time applications is adopted in MANETS to a feasible path that satisfies QoS constraints. The most important phase of the QoS routing protocol is route discovery phase, in which the heuristic search algorithm is required to search their route cache for the availability of routes to destination. With no recent research in this field, there is a need of optimization algorithm, such as Cuckoo Search Algorithm (CSA). In this work, we   propose an approach that uses CSA to find the feasible paths in the route discovery of MANET using QoS protocol. The proposed algorithm is superior compared to an existing algorithm in which Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) with particle swarm optimization (PSO) is used. The proposed QoS routing protocol performs better compared to PSO hybrid with ACO algorithm in terms of throughput, packet delivery, end- to-end delay and efficiency.
