The Amazon Rainforest, which sprawls across nine countries covering six million square kilometres of land, is home to the greatest number of different animal species, flora and fauna on the planet.
Interlaced with over a thousand tributaries of the mighty Amazon River, which starts as a tiny trickle of water high in the Peruvian Andes and empties into the Atlantic at several hundred miles wide, the Amazon jungle provides an astonishing assault on the senses.
See and hear wildlife from toucans to macaws, giant otters to sloths, pink dolphins to butterflies; enjoy guided river cruises deep in the jungle; tree canopy walks; fishing in pristine waters; swimming in rainforest lagoons; treks through the rainforest and trips to spectacular waterfalls; and meet fascinating indigenous communities that live along the river banks.
Our South America experts have visited the Amazon basin many times and can tailor-make the perfect Amazon rainforest experience for you.
As a guide we’d suggest you head to either Peru, Ecuador or Brazil where we recommend you spend around 3-4 days in the jungle and add on 2 or 3 other places to visit depending on the country you are in, there is plenty to choose from!
