Amazon River Adventure 2016
Fly to beautiful Bridgetown and join Braemar on an exhilarating Amazon River adventure in February 2016. Setting sail from paradise, you will spend the first few days of your unforgettable cruise holiday sailing south towards beautiful Brazil and the first port of call, Santarem. This secluded city offers extraordinary sights and experiences to those who are lucky enough to visit. Take time to explore the busy Mercado Market; admire fantastic displays at the Museu de Santarem; and witness the famous ‘Wedding of the Waters’ – the meeting of the different coloured waters of the Amazon and Tapajós rivers.
Braemar - 04 February 2016 - 14 Nights
Bustling Manaus – the Amazon’s largest city – is next on the itinerary. Combining Amazonian natural beauty with modern culture, Manaus is truly unique. The city centre is bustling and vibrant, with many shops and restaurants to discover, but on the outskirts you will find a myriad of creeks and estuaries that wind their way into the rainforest. Be sure to make the most of your extended overnight stay with a late-night caiman spotting trip in the depths of the flooded forest. Then it’s on to Parintins – home of the annual Boi Bumba festival – where you can admire magnificent costumes and impressive puppets at a private Boi Bumba show before sailing to final port of call, Devil’s Island – a former French penal colony. With its notorious history and fascinating native wildlife, a day here is always an amazing experience. Keep an eye out for colourful macaws, monkeys and sea turtles as you explore.
