The Amazon

The colossal tropical rainforest of the Amazaon sweeps across over half of Brazil, providing a sanctuary for masses of flora, fauna and indigenous tribes.
Two major rivers, the Solimoes and the Negro, converge to form the colossal Amazon River, which, in certain areas, is up to 11 km in width. These two rivers create an intricate network of waterways which feed the vegetation of this important steamy and tropical forest.

A completely different experience to the African version, the safari holiday option here is just as exciting.  Travel down the river in the M/Y Tucana Riverboat, stay amongst the forest tree tops at Anavilhanas and fully emerse yourself in the sounds, colous and smells of nature.

What to expect in the Amazon

Staying in the Brazilian Amazon is all about being in a beautiful habitat, rather than seeing lots of wildlife. The area is so vast that animals roam across thousands of acres and they don’t tend to hang around human habitation at the lodges.

Our opinion

Getting to the Amazon is an arduous task; you normally fly to the forgettable city of Manaus before heading to your lodge. But  your effort is rewarded with a unique experience staying in a precious and severely threatened ecosystem.
