EXPLORING PERU’S PACAYA-SAMIRIA RESERVE ABOARD DELFIN II
October 30-Novovember 8, 2021
2019 Betchart Expeditions group
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 us 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 2020.
To make your reservation, please return the enclosed reservation form
