Peru Amazon

a mythical rainforest with an astounding diversity of species

Whether you’re standing on a canopy walkway high above the forest floor, on a guided walk through the thick jungle or taking a river trip in an authentic dugout canoe, the wonders of this mythical rainforest will astound you.

Blessed with a staggering biodiversity that includes thousands of species of bird, hundreds of mammals, a plethora of insects and a seemingly endless array of plants, the Amazon Basin is a must for all wildlife, nature and adventure enthusiasts.

You can set off into the Peruvian Amazon from Puerto Maldonado which allows access to reserves such as Manu National Park and Tambopata National Reserve. Dotted with eco-friendly lodges in the midst of the lush rainforest, the wildlife spotting opportunities within these protected areas are spectacular. You will have the chance to spot sloths basking in the sunshine, giant anteaters and a profusion of brightly coloured birds flitting through the trees.

The city of Iquitos is an alternative starting point, with opportunities to take cruises deep into the heart of the Pacaya Samiria Reserve. This is a biodiversity hotspot and as you drift along Amazonian tributaries you could come face to face with pink and grey river dolphins, turtles and manatees. You might even spy the Amazon’s top predator, the black jaguar, drinking at the water’s edge.

As you explore your knowledgeable guide will reveal the secrets of the forest, from unique insects to the medicinal properties of certain plants. You will also get a chance to meet with indigenous communities and learn about life in the Amazon from their unique perspective.
