Camping in the Amazon
Spend a night glamping in the Amazon jungle with opportunity to discover the secrets of the rainforest up close ant dusk and dawn.
Stay in a first class jungle lodge or sail down the river on a luxury cruise will ensure you will have a very comfortable Amazon experience, but you will inevitably to a certain extent be insulated from the nocturnal sights and sounds of this living rainforest which never really sleeps.
But take a cruise in the Amazonian region of Ecuador on either the Anaconda or her sister ship Manatee, and you will be able to opt for a night camping out on-shore, enveloped by the rich foliage of the rainforest. The is glamping - never fear though, you won’t be sleeping in a leaky little tent sharing your cramped space with a battalion of creepy-crawlies.
From the Anaconda, you’ll pull up on a river beach in kayaks, where you will accommodated in modern lightweight dome tents, furnished with insect /reptile-proof floor and proper beds cool off in a shower before your gourmet dinner is prepared by a ship chef and served by candlelight. Your guide will enlightened you about the natural world surrounding you with jungle walks. In the morning you’ll kayak up hidden tributaries to enjoy the jungle’s wake-up call at sunrise. If you cruise on the Manatee your land-based experience in a protected reserve will take placed from rustic thatched cabins where you can feel the ambiance of the rainforest from a hammock on your veranda .
