Spanning over 8 countries, the Amazon is the largest tropical rainforest in the world, covering over five and a half a million square kilometres (1.4 billion acres).
It is home to 10% of the world’s known species, 20% of the world’s bird species, as well as around two and a half million different insect species and over forty thousand plant species.
The rainforest also features elusive species including the cougar, jaguar and anaconda.
Deriving its name from the ancient Greek female warriors; the Amazon is an ecosystem unrivalled in size and diversity that awakens every one of your five senses.
The amazing Amazon is a paradise for the adventurous. There is a variety of ways to experience this untouched wonderland; from tree climbing to sport fishing, bird watching to canoe rides as well as trekking and cruising. The Amazon delivers a travel experience like no other, one that will never cease to amaze.
Our South American Travel Specialist consultant was knowledgeable and meticulous with all of our travel arrangements. We felt completely indulged throughout the trip, with every detail taken care of. The service both during the planning phase and the trip itself was excellent. ALL of our individual guides spoke perfect English. They were passionate and proud of their homeland, eager to share their knowledge and our new friends were keen to learn about Australia. Despite finding ourselves in VERY remote places, we had no concerns whatsoever about our safety. Since returning, I haven’t hesitated in referring friends and family to The Travel Specialists.Ann
