Ecuador Amazon Basin
The jungles of the Amazon basin occupy half of Ecuador. Still undeveloped and even unexplored, this wilderness of rainforest, remote Indian communities and abundant wildlife is a memorable addition to any itinerary to Ecuador. The region is easily accessible by air, road and boat.
Cruise the Amazon surrounded by the beauty of the Amazon rainforest. Departing from Coca, 3-, 4- and 7-day river cruises on the luxurious new MV Anakonda take you deep into the jungle. Each day there is a programme of activities with canoe trips, walks along rainforest trails in search of wildlife and visits to local indigenous communities.
Staying at a lodge in the Amazon jungle puts you at the centre of abundant wildlife. From your lodge you head out both on foot and on water in search of wildlife at all times of the day and night.
Whether on a cruise or staying at a lodge you can expect to see exceptional wildlife from flocks of parrots, troupes of monkeys to vibrantly coloured macaws gathering at clay licks.
The lodges and cruises that we recommend are all sensitive to the preservation of the rainforest environment.
