Get away from all of civilisation for an incredible wildlife experience along the mighty Amazon River, exploring vast tracts of dense impenetrable rainforest from the gateway city of Manaus.
Pristine stretches of primary forest and simple lodges are better the further from the city you venture, with some truly remote jungle lodges requiring an additional flight to access them. Go beyond Manaus to Tefe or Alta Floresta to explore the dense biodiversity of the vast Amazon basin, and stay at lodges which concentrate on projects with local communities to help preserve traditions and the surrounding rainforest.
Early morning canoe rides are for spotting pink river dolphins as well as a myriad of birds, sloths and monkeys. Night walks or boat rides will take you looking for the insects, reptiles and caiman of the tributary rivers. Visit local communities where the villagers will show you their traditional face painting using the achiote plant.
