Brazil: The Brazilian Amazon

Visit Us

The Amazon basin: romantic, exotic, huge, and vital to Man’s survival. The Brazilian state of Amazonas is where the river really comes into its own. The black acidic waters of the Rio Negro merge with the sludgy brown waters of the Solimões at the giant city of Manaus, 1,000km from the sea, and form a waterway 10km wide. This vast wilderness with its secretive wildlife and undiscovered indigenous tribes also supports many human communities on its fertile banks, farmers, fishermen, tradesmen; old wooden riverboats still provide the only transport, although things are changing fast, with new bridges and roads opening up previously isolated areas.

What our experts say

I've been virtually everywhere in Brazil and can genuinely say that the Amazon is one of my favourite regions - the stunning flight of macaws against an apricot sunset sky is an unforgettable image. You'll almost always spot monkeys: funny how each time it is a new delight - alligators, turtles, toucans, and often the odd sloth watching from a treetop or a dolphin leaping form the still waters. River otters are a rarer sighting: all the more exciting when you do see a family at play.
