South American Mosaic

April 2, 2015 - April 17, 2015

Explore five countries on this ever-popular South America tour: Brazil, French Guiana, Suriname, Guyana and Trinidad & Tobago. By Zodiac and on foot search tributaries and rain forest habitats for abundant wildlife, such as sloths, nearly 30 species of monkeys, and, with luck, pink Amazon river dolphins. Bird species number in the thousands here, including the colorful red-and-green macaw, Guianan cock-of-the-rock, and toco toucan—exceeded only by the nearly 1,800 species of dazzling butterflies. Landings at isolated villages built on stilts present you with a glimpse into the lives of Indians and other native peoples on an Amazon tour. Among the many thrills on this voyage is the chartered flight into the heart of wild Guyana to view Kaieteur Falls, nearly five times the height of Niagara.
