Voyage to the Heart of The Amazon

7 Days from £3165 per adult.
7 Days
Wildlife Cruise
Off The Beaten Track

The M/Y Tucano is one of the most comfortable expeditionary vessels in the Brazilian Amazon. The voyage begins in Manaus and over 7 days navigates far up the Rio Negro. There are daily hikes in the rainforest accompanied by naturalist guides, scouting trips by motorised canoe up streams and tributaries, and during the dry season swimming from deserted beaches. On the last day of the voyage there is a visit to the ‘Meeting of the Waters’ where the light coloured water of the Amazon and dark water of the Rio Negro meet and flow side by side for miles without mixing.

The cruise departs on alternating Saturdays throughout the year. Five day cruises are also available.

Yes, I am back from a wonderfully amazing realisation of a dream to see a jaguar. Too good to put into words. Everything went like clockwork – Sao Paulo airport is a bit of a maze. I landed up pretty well having a one to one trip with my guides. Cristalino was magical with American guides Will and Gill Carter, very much a ‘Birders’ paradise, but I loved it. Then I went on to the Jaguar Research Centre for what turned out to be 3 1/2 days of pure heaven. ‘Fisher’, my guide was brilliant and we managed to see Wilson, Hugo, Duda (on 3 occasions) and an unidentified cat. The young Duda was amazing, we followed her for a whole morning moving along the river bank and then in the evening actually saw her swimming across it. Wonderful memories.
