Iquitos, Loreto Region, Peru
Earth’s largest and most spectacular tropical wilderness – over 5 million sq km of rainforest – is an overwhelming landscape of huge waterfalls tumbling off table-top mountains, vast, coloured rivers, and fragrant cloud forests. All filled with astonishing, endemic wildlife.
Nine countries share the Amazon Basin, though the majority, 60% is in Brazil. It’s also home to over 350 enthnic groups – a dwindling few of whom have never had contact with the outside world.
