GreenTracks announces affordable Amazon cruise
In the 24 years GreenTracks has been offering Amazon wildlife cruises, the trend has unfortunately been one of increasing levels of “luxury” and soaring prices. Whereas years ago we could travel on an inexpensive yet comfortable riverboat to remote areas, see plenty of wildlife and see no other people but remote riverside villagers that found us as interesting as we them, now it’s not that easy to do. Today high-end luxury riverboats seem to cater more to the cruise-set rather than wildlife and nature enthusiast. Gourmet sculptures of food too pretty to eat that you might find in a New York restaurant are now a selling point for these vessels. It seems we are being insulated from the real world, numbed with drinks in our Jacuzzi, rather than experiencing the historic real Amazon.
In light of this trend, we are pleased to inform you of a couple of Amazon cruises being offered on a historic Amazon vessel, owned and operated by a wildlife biologist that harken back to an experience near to the best of those cruises years ago. The food of regional and international dishes is good. The Victorian period style boat is comfortable. You’ll have an air-conditioned cabin to sleep in and showers with hot water. Wildlife viewing excursions by boat and walking.
Only 2 dates are currently offered:
October 1 – 5, 2016
October 28 – November 1, 2016
