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.
