Full description
During this botanical city tour, you will visit the two best natural parks in Manaus to get a sense of how rich and diverse the Amazon region's wildlife and nature really is.

The first site to be visited is the Amazon Museum (MUSA), located in the botanical garden Adolpho Ducke, which in turn is part of the largest urban forest reserve on the planet. In this botanical garden, you will walk along a forest trail and you will visit a lagoon with water lilies (the largest aquatic plant on the planet). You will also visit an aquarium with several species of fish from region, including the famous pirarucu (Arapaima gigas). You will go to a serpentary where you can learn more about the different types of snakes found in the region, as well as several exhibitions about the fishing techniques of the indigenous peoples of the Amazon. You will also have the opportunity to climb a 42 meter high observation tower from where you can see the vastness of the rich forest.

After this, head to the Amazon National Research Institute (INPA), where several researchers from around the world seek to know more about the greatest biodiversity on the planet. In this open park, you will have the opportunity to glimpse various animals and plants from the region such as manatee - which for many years were hunted predatorily near to extinction and today find refuge in a project to repopulate local rivers and lakes. Besides the manatee, you will be able to see several other species like the giant otter, turtles, alligators, and electric eels.
