Anakonda Amazon Cruises

Small, perfectly formed Ecuador contains just 2% of the entire Amazon; yet here are some of the most diverse and pristine areas on Earth, including Yasuní National Park designated by UNESCO as a World Biosphere Reserve. Yasuni alone contains over 200 species of butterflies, 596 species of birds, 150 species of amphibians, 121 species of reptiles, 200 species of mammals; and fascinating ethnic groups with unique ways of life such as the Secoya and Cofan.

With a draft of only 1 metre sister river boats the Anakonda and Manatee take guests to where few may tread. On an 8 day itinerary guests can visit 4 protected areas - Yasuni, Cuyabeno Reserve, Limoncocha and Pañacocha Biological Corridor - and as the operation involves 15 communities of the Napo, guests connect with the human inhabitants as well as the wildlife, visiting members of the Kichwa, Secoya and Cofan cultures.

And all the while in great comfort and style with small groups, expert naturalist guides, and delicious food.
