The Brazilian Amazon: Spot wildlife in The Brazilian Amazon

Visit Us

Spot wildlife in The Brazilian Amazon

There's never a shortage of magical moments on a trip into the Amazon, but often the greatest thrill of all is catching sight of an exotic creature in amongst the dense and lush vegetation.

Whether it’s a flock of exotic birds blazing across the sky, a hundred beady reptilian eyes returning your gaze on the surface of a jungle lake, or a mischievous troupe of monkeys leaping acrobatically between tree branches, snatched scenes of wildlife at rest and play paint a vivid picture of the inner life of the world’s largest rainforest. And even when you can’t see it, the diverse fauna all around you will be sure to make its presence felt in bird song, insect sounds and echoing monkey calls.

From a lodge tucked deep within the jungle wilderness you will head out on wildlife watching excursions on land and water. Typical activities include boat journeys at sunrise and sunset, piranha fishing, canoeing, visits to indigenous villages to see how the people of the Amazon live, and walking safaris by day and night. Alternatively you can take an expeditionary cruise from 4 to 8 days in length to penetrate further into the forest.

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.
