UPPER AMAZON
EXPLORING PERU’S PACAYA-SAMIRIA RESERVE ABOARD DELFIN II
Travel with Dr. Laurie McHargue
OCTOBER 20-29, 2018
Explore the archaeological, natural, and cultural wonders of Machu Picchu, Cusco, and Lima on our optional Peru pre-trip extension, October 15-20, 2018.

DEAR MEMBERS AND FRIENDS,
There’s a sense of enchantment about being out on the fabled Amazon River, as you listen to the symphony of noises emanating from the depths of the jungle. Part of the mystery of the Amazon is the fact that the omnipresent wildlife is so skilled at concealment; but as you get the hang of spotting, trying to outdo your guide, your excitement will quickly escalate.

Join wildlife biologist Dr. Laurie McHargue for an exploration of Peru’s massively biodiverse Pacaya-Samiria Reserve aboard the Delfin II, the perfect platform for discovering this living, breathing forest. This exquisite, 28-guest ship is specially designed for the river environment and to keep you connected to it—open, airy decks and spacious cabins, each with an expansive window wall, afford nonstop views of life along the Amazon. Delfin II is equipped with comfortable, custom-made skiffs that are able to thread through narrow canopied waterways. Plus, she carries a fleet of kayaks, providing rare, intimate experiences with this magical environment.

Each day you will have rewarding natural history experiences and meaningful cultural encounters with the people who call the river home. And you’ll return to the ship’s cool confines to enjoy wonderful company, music, and excellent meals that highlight the remarkable flavors of the region.

The staff, unmatched in the region, will be the key to your experience. You’ll go with a veteran expedition leader and a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor—a naturalist who is specially trained to help you capitalize on the rare wildlife sightings while shooting in the often-challenging conditions of the rain forest. The handpicked local guides are especially skilled at finding wildlife, since most of them grew up along the river, and they are the most gracious hosts when you enter villages along the river.

The Amazon is an all-five-senses travel experience unlike anything else. I hope you’ll join us on this voyage, October 20-29, 2018. To make your reservation, please return the enclosed reservation form or call (800) 252-4910.

Sincerely,

Margaret M. Betchart
