Jungle Experiences, Amazon Cruise, Peru
The Amazon is a 4,400-mile river with thousands of tributaries. A 2,600,000-square mile basin, it drains rivers and streams in eight countries (Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Guyana and Suriname) as well as French Guiana. Its broadleaved forest is the largest on the planet and its biome—the forest combined with the savannah, floodplains and rivers—is a region of immense diversity, sheltering more than 30,000 plant species, 1,800 fish, 1,300 bird species, 311 mammals and 165 types of amphibian.

The archetypal Amazon trip is not now in Brazil, but in Peru and Ecuador, both of which are notable for their wildlife. Where deforestation and industrialisation have devastated great expanses of the low-lying Brazilian Amazon, the headwaters in Peru are in much better shape. For birders and lepidopterists, the banks of the tributaries and the forested slopes of the Andes provide plenty of interest.

The cruise boats in Peru are the oat luxurious on the Amazon—including the MV Zafiro, a state-of-the-art luxury Amazon River vessel which began sailing the Peruvian Amazon in October 2015. Passengers can expect highly-trained expert guides, hospitality and attention to detail on board, along with stylish design and modern facilities. . . . . . more
