Late afternoon and evening excursions are also great for spotting wildlife, but they often include hikes through densely wooded areas that are home to more elusive creatures such as jaguars, otters and sloths.

From searching for wild otters along the river and among the ponds and tracking a giant anteater across the savannahs to sipping rum punch while watching the giant Victoria Amazonica lily blossom before your eyes, you'll have endless opportunities to explore this amazing ecosystem.

In addition to these activities, you'll enjoy boating through the flooded forest in the wet season, fauna and flora along the walking trails among the forest ponds, and spotting all sorts of amazing animals when they come out of hiding at night.

Birdlife is rich and varied both on the savannah and along the rivers and ponds.
