Voyage To The Heart Of The Amazon

Visit operator website

Run by: Wildlife Worldwide

Reference number: 2293

From: £Contact us

This wonderful voyage travels up the Rio Negro into a rarely visited part of the Amazon rainforest, where the wildlife and flora is largely undisturbed.

With a naturalist guide you'll visit different habitats by boat and on foot: igapó forest, the strange and lovely seasonally flooded forest where orchids and bromeliads cling to overhanging trees that are home to fishing birds and iguanas; the terre firme forest whose tall trees with buttressed roots are most people's idea of Amazon rainforest; and the fantastically rich varzea forest, with colourful birds, magnificent trees draped with lianas and carpeted with orchids, and monkeys chattering in the branches.
