Private Independent Travel

Board the M/V Anakonda for this fascinating 8-day itinerary on the Amazon river. Visit remote villages and sail through unique and fragile ecosystems on your luxurious small-ship voyage.

Flooded by white waters, the rivers and lakes comprising the Pañacocha ecosystem provide the perfect habitat for Water Monkey Fish, White Caiman, and the infamous Piranha. Enjoy a delicious Amazon-style BBQ meal and refreshing beverages at a nearby camping site. In the afternoon, disembark and hike the trails that circle the area.

      Day 3

        Parrot's Clay Licks-SaniWarmi/Yasuni National Park

        Day 4

          Indillama and Napo River/Yasuni National Park

          Today, choose from two different activity options that will allow you to search for amazing wildlife. You may kayak though the Indillama River, one of the Napo River's effluents that goes into Yasuni National Park. On the other hand, you can choose to go in a canoe ride through the Napo River. It's up to you!

          Day 5

            Yasuni National Park

            In the morning, disembark for the first daylight close-and-personal tropical rainforest experience, where you will see and learn about the incredible biodiversity of the Amazon.

            After lunch, the ship navigates to one of the most pristine and rarely explored sections of Ecuadorian Amazonia, home to the legendary pink river dolphin, black caiman, and anaconda. Also be on the look out for river turtles, various species of monkey, and hoatzins. The only way to actually visit this flooded ecosystem is by canoe, a ride that will reveal the beauty of a lush jungle world. A glamping option is available to those travelers who wish to participate, please inquire for more information.

            Day 6

              Visit to a Local Community/Island Exploration

In the afternoon, explore one of the largest river islands of the Napo River.

              Day 7
