- 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Catch your first glimpse of the Amazon as you enjoy early birdwatching along the river. Observe monkeys, parrots, macaws, and learn more about nature.
After breakfast, the Zafiro skirts the edges of Pacaya-Samiria Reserve, a flooded forest covering five million acres at the headwaters of the Amazon basin. Board your comfortable excursion skiffs for your expedition on the confluence where the Maranon and Ucayali Rivers join together forming the mighty Amazon River. Nature here appears especially dramatic: birdsong accompanies your morning excursion as you glide past river banks inhabited by large-billed terns, laughing falcons, gray tanagers, and countless colorful birds. Explore the first river that flows into Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, Piranha Creek, in search of wildlife. This area is known as the parrot-parakeet paradise.
Take a late afternoon excursion to Nauta Creek within Pacaya-Samiria Reserve, which is known as the mirrored forest, which makes perfect sense as you gaze upon its glistening black water lagoons. Your naturalist guides use their eagle eyes to help you spot toucans, parrots, and macaws overhead, and iguanas, sloths, and monkeys among the soaring trees. On the way back to the Zafiro, the glorious sunset is reflected in these glistening waters. Tonight, take a nocturnal boat ride to enjoy a symphony from the night and constellations, as well as search for caimans, tarantulas, boa constrictors, and more.
