#6 of 30 in Wildlife in Manaus
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
To see the sights of the Amazon rain forest firsthand visit Parque Ecologico Januari, a natural reserve of 3.6422 sq m (9,000 acres) of dry land forests, low lands, and flooded forests. As you canoe on the lakes and streams, through large and small trees with lianas and vegetation typical of this ecosystem, explore the plants that grow in the Amazon. In particular, don’t miss the chance to see the symbol of the region, the water lilly (Amazon Victória or Nympheaceae), a plant that spreads its round leaves on the shallow waters, measuring up to 2 m (7 ft) in diameter. The flower lasts only three days. It starts out white when it blossoms, then turns lilac and finally dark red. the park is located at the Negro River, about an hour from Manaus by boat. Don't miss the Meeting of the Water, the spectacular junction of the Negro and Solimoes Rivers.

  • The Park is beautiful. Ideal for realizing the beauty characteristics of the region, The Regal Vióorias are beautiful.

  • I visited during an "Amazon safari", it was worth it to see water lilies in various stages of development.

  • The Park is beautiful, worth the visit. Need to quantitate the expectations in relation to Regal in victories dry season they appear in great numbers. I was extremely upset about the exploitation of wild animals. In one of the floats where the boat stops a boa constrictor, two sloths and an alligator with mouth tied with a nylon cord were offered for photos with tourists for tips. That's not ecotourism.
