Amazon - It's an almost mythical word, isn't it? Those three syllables conjure up rich images of one of the world's wildest places. A mighty river and rainforest of unfathomable size, both teeming with unique wildlife and wonders that have filled imaginations for generations.
Representing more than half of the earth's remnant rainforests, and fed by the arteries of near countless river tributaries, the Amazon basin comprises the largest and most bio-diverse tropical rainforest in the world. Astoundingly, one in ten known species in the world lives in the Amazon Rainforest.
Exploring the Amazon is, for many people, one of those once-in-a-lifetime "bucketlist" travel experiences. Cruising the mighty Amazon river flanked by lush, steamy Jungle listening to the sounds of the wild, taking wildlife hikes, learning about medicinal properties of indigenous flora, and encountering legendary fauna like the feared piranha, anacondas and pink river dolphins. In many ways, this place feels like fiction, made real
