M/V Amazon Clipper Premium
Come explore the Amazon by taking a boat safari into the Anavilhanas Archipelago, to the unique ecosystems of the Rio Negro. This great tributary of the Amazon River flows north of Manaus and is characterized by its dark, acidic water, where few insects can breed. This leaves the environment almost mosquito-free! It also accounts for flora that differs from the rest of the jungle areas around Manaus.
