While visiting the Pink Dolphins, we recommend adding a boat outing or scenic overflight in a float plane to marvel at the extreme scenic beauty of the Anavilhanas Archipelago, an extensive archipelago of 600 verdant river islands and white sand beaches, all reflected in the mirrorlike waters of the Rio Negro.
If you have just a bit more time. we recommend a few nights in a floating lodge in the world’s largest flooded forest, where you can see the famous and extremely strange White Uakari Monkey, as well as the world’s largest protected population of endangered Black Caimans, which is an extremely handsome crocodilian that grows to a maximum of 18 feet and therefore is one of the two largest aquatic predators of the entire Amazon.
And for birders and bird photographers, we recommend a two-day outing to view Guianan Cocks-of-the-Rock displaying at traditional dancing grounds. This blazing-orange, quail-sized bird is one of the 50 most beautiful birds on Earth. These sites are only a 3-h drive from Manaus, making them to most accessible locations in the world to view and photograph this must-see species, all in comfort.
