The world’s largest river (and disputed longest, depending on your source), the Amazon offers huge potential for boat travel. In fact, the Amazon is probably the last river in the world to offer a complete passenger travel service.
A huge series of waterways, much of the sprawling river network is covered by a variety of vessels of all shapes and sizes. A cruise along the mighty river is a truly unique way to experience the sheer magnitude of the Brazilian rainforest. Cruises are either a loop or can sometimes transport you from A to B.
They often carry canoes and small boats for shore excursions on foot, or for further exploration of tributaries and smaller rivers.
Destination specialists at Natural World Safaris are well versed in the art of flying around Brazil, often having experienced most flights first hand. In general flying internally within Brazil is easy, but if you are organising your own flight be careful as major cities have a number of airports where flights can leave from. If you are doing a lot of flying in a short space of time, you might want to consider a Brazil Air Pass. This can only be purchased outside of Brazil but entitles you to a number of stops in a 21-day period. Ask your destination specialist for advice on the best routes and timings. It is the quickest and most convenient way to get around and allows you to cover large parts of the country in a short space of time.
Perfect for those who want to see lots, but are rather more limited in terms of time.
