The Amazon River, the most diverse watershed on earth, hosts the world’s largest avifauna and myriad other life forms. The very word “Amazon” brings to mind flocks of parrots and macaws, toucans, raptors, wonderful cloud formations, golden sunsets, vast tributaries, Pink River Dolphins, primates, and fascinating culture. Our Amazon River Cruise is always among our most popular departures. From Iquitos, Peru, we will explore three major rivers and various tributaries aboard the beautiful and extremely comfortable Zafiro. Individual cabins face the river, and an upper deck offers a delightful wildlife observation experience. Excellent cuisine and service are provided by a riverboat crew that is among the best in the world. Please join us June 8, 2023 for an encore presentation of “Amazon River Cruise: A Birding & Natural History Odyssey” with David Ascanio, Andrew Whittaker, and Doris Valencia, who will share the extraordinary birds, wildlife, and culture of the incomparable Amazon River.
