Amazon

See more birdlife in the biological haven than anywhere else

The Peruvian Amazon is the least populated part of Peru, though some indigenous communities do inhabit the jungle, and there are pockets of urbanisation in cities such as Iquitos. Generally, however, it’s a wild, thickly forested region with two distinct ecosystems: lowland and highland jungle.

Peru has more species of birds than any other country on Earth, and the third largest number of animal species. The Manu National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, covers mountains, creeks, and valleys. Its grasslands, cloud forest, and rainforest support an estimated 1,000 species of birds, including great tinamou, Spix’s guan, rufescent tiger-heron, mountain caracara, and the mitred parakeet. The mammal population is no less exciting, with jaguar, ocelot, tayra, marmoset, and nine-banded armadillo.
 
Talk to us about an amazing river cruise aboard a triple-decker river boat to then explore the rainforest by cruise and on foot with expert Indian Guides. The birding is second to none, and keen photographers will be equally in their element.

Accommodation:
Delfin III
The Delfin III is the most luxurious ship to explore the Maranon and Ucayali Rivers in the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. The newest vessel in Delfin’s upmarket fleet, it sets new standards for Amazon cruising for the 43 fortunate guests onboard.
Accommodation:
Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica
At the Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica you will holiday in the depths of a rainforest, sleeping in your own wooden cabana inspired by the indigenous Ese Eja culture. The hotel has a privileged view of the Amazon and its birds, as it’s situated on the Madre de Dios River.
Accommodation:
Delfin I
Cruising along the Amazon onboard the Delfin I you’ll have a completely different experience of Peru. The jungle views from your room and the deck are breathtaking, but the real appeal is being on the river with the ability to stop in remote locations along the way.
Accommodation:

Glide along the awe inspiring Maranon River onboard Delfin II in absolute luxury. This floating palace cruises through the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, and every suite onboard has 180° panoramic windows so you can fully absorb the incredible views.
Accommodation:
Refugio Amazonas
Refugio Amazonas is a superb lodge with just 32 bedrooms, lying in 200 acres of pristine wildlife reserve. It’s the perfect place for an adventure: expert guides will lead you on a nature walk, or you can see the wildlife from the water when you paddle out on the lake.
