Arquipelago de Anavilhanas, Manaus

4.4
#4 of 45 in Wildlife in Manaus
This secluded jungle archipelago, boasting upward of 400 islands, is the perfect place for you to appreciate the unique ecology of the Amazon. Lying upriver from Manaus on the Rio Negro, Arquipelago de Anavilhanas is a naturalist’s paradise, both biodiverse and beautiful. You can explore the 1,000 sq km (386 sq mi) labyrinth of dense forest, creeks, swamps, and beaches by boat or board a small plane for some spectacular aerial views. A local guide will help you keep your bearings, as well as identify the abundance of flora and fauna. Keep your eyes peeled for monkeys, sloths, giant arapaima fish, black caimans, and the elusive manatee. Should you go swimming in the warm waters, you'll very likely be joined by schools of friendly pink dolphins.

  • Wonderful place. We went from Manaus to New Ayrão in rental car. The road is quite irregular: some good stretches and other terrible, Coming in New Ayrão we stopped at the tourist information centre and we were very well attended. We already had a boatman's contact (Mr. Mani) we answered excellently taking us to meet part of the Park in a boat by the paranas and lakes that form between the Islands. We also did a trail across the island (forest) saw a lot of trees, vines, roots, fruits ... Mr. Deepak knows the region and has a great ecological awareness. We learned a lot from him about preserving and caring for nature. To close the ride we take a nice bath in the vast and beautiful Black River. Perfect!!!!

  • The visit to the Anavilhanas archipelago was made next to a walk in the jungle, ciceroneada by a guide, which was the Ferryman, and an Indian. They were shown various medicinal plants. The cicerones were very helpful and enlightening.
