Delve into the enchanting depths of the Amazon Rainforest

Go on an extraordinary adventure in the world's largest and most enigmatic rainforest, the Amazon. With its wide biodiversity and unparalleled natural beauty, this is a journey that will forever remain etched in your memory.

Welcome to the Amazon rainforest, an unparalleled natural wonder covering an astonishing 1.7 billion acres of pristine wilderness. Encompassing nearly half of Brazil, this vast expanse of lush vegetation captivates the senses with its swamps, winding tributaries, and dense forests. Nestled within this majestic landscape lies the awe-inspiring Amazon River, the world's second largest river, formed by the merging of the dark, murky waters of the Rio Negro and the sandy beige waters of the Rio Solimoes. This extraordinary phenomenon is just one of the many highlights awaiting you in the heart of the Amazon.

The Amazon rainforest teems with an abundance of extraordinary and mystical creatures, boasting over one third of the Earth's entire animal species. Its biodiversity is simply astounding, with estimates suggesting that it holds the largest number of insects and freshwater fish in the world, as well as over 1,500 species of birds and more than 430 mammal species. For wildlife enthusiasts and nature lovers, the Amazon is an unrivalled expedition paradise.

Navigating this dense forest and its murky waterways can be a challenge when it comes to spotting its elusive inhabitants. That's why we highly recommend the expertise of a biologist guide to enhance your Amazon experience. These knowledgeable guides possess invaluable insights into the rainforest's ecology, ensuring you make the most of your adventure amidst the vibrant tapestry of flora and fauna.

As you embark on your Amazonian safari style expedition, the city of Manaus awaits, serving as the unexpected gateway to this magnificent rainforest. Despite being nestled amidst the jungle, Manaus is a bustling metropolis, home to millions of people. During the rubber boom, it stood as one of Latin America's most affluent cities and boasts the world-famous Opera House, a charming historical landmark that should not be missed.

To truly immerse yourself in the wonders of the Amazon jungle and its colossal rivers, we recommend staying at one of our carefully selected Ecolodges or embarking on an expedition river cruise. From spying on the secrets of the dense rainforest to canoeing through flooded forests and exploring the enchanting riverbanks in search of wildlife, each day will be filled with captivating discoveries.
