Expedition Highlights

  • Spend five days exploring Rio Roosevelt (River of Doubt); this untouched wilderness is a paradise for bird enthusiasts, with nearly 500 recorded species.   
  • Search for unique Amazonian wildlife in the Mamiraua Reserve, home to pink river dolphins, hoatzins, and two endemic primates—the bald uakari and black-headed squirrel monkey.  
  • Meet locals to learn about daily life in the rainforest, the traditional uses of various plants, and shop for handicrafts.
  • Explore the Anavilhanas Archipelago on the Rio Negro, one of the largest freshwater archipelagos in the world.
