Travelling on the river
Jaguar on the bank
A river expedition in the style of the great explorers of past centuries. You're accompanied by a large retinue: a boat team, knowledgeable guides, a cook and helping hands who set up your camp each day, hunt and fish for you, prepare food and pamper you. During the day you explore the wilderness by motorized canoe. At night you sleep in jungle camps on the river bank, in mosquito net boxes with hammocks under rain shelter roofs.
