At Leisure: Brazilian Amazon

Brazilian Amazon

The traditional culture and vibrant history of Manaus meet the wildlife, plants, and native people of the Amazonian Rainforest. The secrets of both are unveiled, in this four day itinerary extension into the landscapes and spirit of the Amazon.

This pre-itinerary extension is only available in conjunction with:

  • Impressions of South America
  • Best of South America

    • Day 1


      Fly to Manaus, Brazil (not included in holiday price). Upon arrival, you'll be taken to your hotel before embarking on a city tour. Visit the grand Palacio Rio Negro, former home of a rubber baron and now a museum preserving the traditional Amazonian culture. Discover the floating harbour and nearby Customs House, the vibrant Mercado Municipal, and the famed Opera House, constructed during the rubber boom of Manaus' golden age.

      Hotel: Tropical Manaus

    • Day 2


      This morning, travel upstream to the famous "Meeting of the Waters" and watch the dark water of the Rio Negro mix with the brown water of the Solimoes as the mighty river flows eastward to the Atlantic. After lunch, choose to take an optional canoe excursion down a smaller tributary and try your hand at piranha fishing, or just relax and soak up the jungle atmosphere. Later this afternoon, transfer to your lodge on the banks of the Rio Taruma.

      Meal(s): (Full Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner)

      Hotel: Amazon ECOPARK Jungle Lodge

    • Day 3


      After breakfast, embark on a guided walk through the rainforest. When you enter the dense jungle, imagine yourself as one of the first explorers of the Amazon—perhaps you'll spot the capybara, the world's largest rodent, or get a glimpse of an anaconda as it naps on the branches of a tree. Then visit the home of native Amazonians to learn about their culture and way of life. This evening, take to the river on a moonlit search for caiman.

      Meal(s): (Full Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner)

    • Day 4


      Visit Monkey Forest, a rehabilitation centre and wildlife refuge, to watch the rescued monkeys eat and play. Then say chau to the Amazon as you return to Manaus Airport for your flight to Rio de Janeiro where you will join your holiday on Day 1.

      Meal(s): (Full Breakfast)
