featuring an Expedition Cruise on the ZAFIRO
We invite you aboard our exclusively chartered 28-passenger expedition vessel with zoologist, television presenter and University of Toronto Adjunct Professor Dan Riskin (co-host of Discovery Channel's Daily Planet series) on this journey through the Amazon.
From our meeting point in Lima, fly over the Andes to Iquitos and board the Zafiro to sail upstream on the Amazon and along the Pacaya-Samiria Reserve. Pass towering tree trunks and Philodendron leaves larger than life, see colourful birds, monkeys and sloths. Watch for the spectacular giant water lily, pink river dolphins and the harpy eagle.
Several times a day (and some nights too) take jaunts into the forest using specially designed excursion boats to investigate tributaries and lagoons that radiate off the main river. Our excursions are accompanied by local naturalists whose knowledge of the rainforest and its inhabitants is enormous. Enjoy evening presentations on the region's history, geography and wildlife in air-conditioned comfort.
