very nice experience of navigation on the Amazon River and knowledge of animals. of course, it is not a safari and many are in cages, but you can interact with monkeys, anacondas, turtles and see animals up close that you would not otherwise see. the jungle walk is also short but beautiful and you see two communities living there
