See for yourself how this amazing ecosystem flourishes together.

After lunch aboard the ship, the Anakonda travels to a pristine and rarely visited area of Amazonia which is home to pink river dolphins, black caiman alligators, and anacondas. You may also see a variety of monkeys and river turtles. There is also a unique bird called a hoatzin, which the locals refer to as a “stinky turkey”.
