Brazilian Amazon: the Rio Aripuanã Basin
10-day Expeditions: March 27-April 5, 2015 and August 11-20, 2015

• Join us on an utterly unique Amazon adventure. This expedition is
offered by no one else.
• Travel by air-conditioned Amazon riverboat and take canoe excursions
into flooded forests and along remote tributaries.
• Search for the recently discovered second smallest monkey in the world,
the black-crowned dwarf marmoset – which has the smallest distribution of any
Amazonian monkey and perhaps of any monkey in the world – a total of only 3,000 hectares.
• A once in a life time opportunity to look for at least two suspected new
Amazonian mammal species: a third fresh-water river dolphin, and a dwarf manatee.
• Explore pristine rainforest in a never-visited area of the Amazon and
experience caboclo/mestizo’s (half-caste Amerindian riverbank dweller) life.
