The Manatee Amazon Explorer reaches deep into areas of pristine Amazon Rainforest, bringing intrepid travellers into close contact with the extraordinary landscapes of the jungle, exotic plants and towering trees, remote communities and colourful wildlife. Guests stay in recently refurbished and comfortable air conditioned staterooms, stylishly decorated with panoramic jungle views from the balcony and floor-to-ceiling windows. There is an on-board hot tub and observation deck area - perfect for soaking in the vistas in comfort.
Expert multilingual naturalist guides lead a wide range of revealing excursions on land, whilst the small fleet of motorised canoes provide unlimited mobility and allow for the extensive exploration of the most remote areas and inaccessible shores. More adventurous guests can even venture out after dark to look for caiman and the other secretive nocturnal creatures found in the heart of the rainforest.
For a supplement, it is also possible to spend a night glamping in the jungle - a unique and exciting experience.
Luxurious surrounds, magnificent pristine rainforest and an intimate knowledge of the landscape combine to make the Anakonda a wonderful choice for a three, four or seven night Ecuadorian Amazon cruise. Following detailed itineraries crafted by rainforest expert Raul Garcia, captain of the Flotel Orellana for over 15 years, intrepid travellers will reach deep into this remote corner of the Ecuadorian Amazon and undertake varied excursions to uncover its extraordinary biodiversity and meet local tribes people. Climb observation towers, observe parrot and macaw clay licks, kayak in lakes and venture out at night in search of black caiman and other nocturnal creatures.
On-board activities and facilities ensure you will be entertained and informed, or instead just chose to relax in comfort and soak in the jungle vistas and sunsets or look for pink river dolphins. Up to 40 guests stay in stylish air-conditioned suites, each with panoramic windows and private balconies and there are two shared hot tubs on the observation deck.
