Mamore river expedition on board the Flotel Reina de Enin
Our 4-day Amazon Riverboat Expedition is a hands-on discovery of remote Amazon rainforest and rivers near the Bolivia/Brazil border. Based on the newly renovated, air-conditioned Reina de Enin Riverboat, you'll explore Bolivia's remote wilds on horseback, hikes, naturewalks, motorized launch excursions, and from the comfort of the Reina's viewing decks.
Equal in size to California and Texas combined, Bolivia holds thousands of unexplored Inca and pre-Inca ruins, thousands of square miles of Amazon rainforest, unsurpassed wildlife viewing, and very few tourists. It is the least populated, least explored of the nine South American countries that comprise the Amazon Basin.
Annual flooding in the Bolivian Amazon ensures minimal human presence and allows over 1,300 bird, 220 reptile, 100 amphibian, 20 primate, 316 mammal, and thousands of plant species to dominate.
That is the case in the Beni area of Bolivia, where the 2000-mile long Mamore River, the longest tributary on Earth, floods annually and keeps the region wild. Those people that do live in the Amazon Basin have adapted well. Their main mode of transport is the dugout canoe, and they find plenty of food in the animals, fish, and fruit of the surrounding rainforests and rivers.
