By Amazon Eco Adventures! In a small group (10 people max.) discover the landmarks of Amazon on a full-day guided tour, including roundtrip pickup in Manaus. Starting with pink dolphin interaction, docile and playful animals that after centuries as part of legends have begun to be hunted by some unscrupulous fishermen who kill them for use as fish bait!<br>Sail along the world's largest “Meeting of the Waters” where the Negro river meets the Solimões river (place where it starts to be called Amazon river). Stop for photos, explanations of its features and curiosities.<br>Enjoy a visit to an indigenous village to learn about their culture and watch a ritual, using musical instruments, traditional dances and songs of their culture.<br>You will navigate through the Igapó (flooded forest during part of the year), you’ll walk along a wooden walkway suspended to get to the lake with the water lilies (giant plants) hopefully you will be able to spot wild animals such as sloths, birds and monkeys.

I’m not a big zoo fan. I always feel sorry for the animals in captivity, regardless of the habitat provided them. Here we saw jaguars, monkeys parrots and a toucan all in small enclosed spaces. The spaces were clean, just not much room, especially for the big cats. We also saw an anaconda- but I couldn’t bring myself to feel sorry for it. The zoo is right at the edge of the Amazon Rain Forest. Seeing how very dense it is made us wonder how anyone could chop through it. Very interesting.

My husband and I visited this zoo as part of a Amazon Viking Cruise from Dec. 21st to Jan. 11th 2020. We had this distinctly unfortunate experience as part of an included excursion provided by Viking. We have been to many zoos in our travels both in the USA and abroad and have never witnessed the sad conditions of the animals unfortunate enough to be caged in this zoo. The one languishing leopard we witnessed while there, should be immediately re-located to some form of sanctuary where it will be free to roam in a space that is certainly much larger than the cage it now occupies. Many of the other caged animals, as a result of the size of their enclosures, are clearly neurotic. We stood and watched a number of animals that paced back and forth in their cages, as a result of the size of the enclosures and for lack of some kind of alternative external stimulus. The whole experience was very disturbing and frankly, depressing. We would not recommend visiting this particular zoo, even if you are desperate to see flora and fauna of the rain forest. We believe this zoo should be closed and the animals given the freedom they so richly deserve, in specific environments befitting their dignity.

We were taken here as part of a Manaus City tour and were only given 40 minutes here - a quick walk through! I am not fond of zoos which have animals and birds in tiny cages, but this one was not too bad. Clean and the wildlife appear to be well cared for. It is run by the military and some of the animals require rehabilitation. We were able to see some of the local wildlife which you would never see in the wild. Loved the jaguars, black jaguar and the toucans.

In general I do not like to visit zoos because they contain animals that are caged, against their natural state, but this visit was part of a longer tour around Manaus and so I went in. Although I found it sad to see animal and birds caged, the overall impression was that they are well looked after and, apart from one pacing cat, they appeared content. It was also explained that some of the animals are being rehabilitated after injury or rescue from trafficking, and are not yet in a position to be released into the wild. In that respect, the army is to be commended for the rescue job thet are doing.

Not being a great lover of zoos due to animals being locked up, I have to recognise the veterinary services the Brazilian Army supplies to damaged indigenous animals. It is spacious, the animals are fed well and it is relatively clean.
