Researching this Cebidae primate was over whelming. These common squirrel monkeys (Saimiri sciureus) at the Rio Negro, Amazon near Manaus, Brazil; were the friendliest lot I had ever seen. May be they found something in common with me, after all.

The Amazon forest in South America is the most fascinating store house of the worlds carbon kingdom, you could ever imagine. It is an intricate archipelago of narrow green ribbons of forest, punctuated by the Amazon river and its tributaries.If you ever hit for the South American discovery, do not leave out the Amazon forests, enjoy the earth in it smost natural state,believe me.



Well, let me tell you more about these little squirrel monkeys. The crown lineage of the squirrel monkeys appears to have diverged around 1.5 million years ago. Imagine!!

This new world monkey does not use its tail for climbing, although when you watch it move, you observe it kind of uses it as a tool and balancing pole of sorts to help him jump from one spot to another. Their movements in the branches can be very rapid.

They live together in groups. These little chimps kept giving out vocal calls, warning sounds to the rest of the troupes, I guess they were either protecting themselves or calling in the rest of the gang to show me off. I guess the later.

They are so tiny and hairy, but alert at all times. Their small body size also makes them susceptible to predators .Squirrel monkeys are omnivores, eating primarily fruits and insects. Occasionally they also eat seeds, leaves, flowers, buds, nuts, and eggs.

The Amazon jungle is the largest tropical rainforest on Earth and a World Natural Heritage site. I drowned myself in its grandeur and was captivated by its wonder. It's dense forests made for excellent hiking trails, intense smells and foilage kept drawing me into the thickest depth of the jungle life I have ever experienced. I just didn’t want to leave.
The Amazon Jungle trail from the Manaus waters is the best way to ensure that you see the Rivers meeting and take an Amazon river boat into the heart of the jungle.

Thick forested areas and many animals to spot. The squirrel monkeys were such a delight!

Wilderness is where I belong and God am going back!! Every night before I sleep I say a prayer for the rainforests of the world, may they multiply, may they be left alone; and may they continue to provide us the essence of life-Oxygen! Reuse,Reduce,Rethink and Replenish.We belong to the forest, the forest does not belong to us?! Respect Forests… A trip to Brazil and Manaus I a real eye opener, so don't miss Manaus while in South America.

Seeing the Amazon rain forest had been a dream of a lifetime.
I have been on a number of jungle safaris in Kenya, Tanzania and South Africa and have enjoyed the fantastic wildlife experience that is unparalleled in the world.
But a visit to the Amazon is something out of the world.
You can see the Amazon by Iberostar, the largest cruise ship on the Amazon river, or you can take the smaller ones with special facilities or else take the low cost travel packages on small boats.
Each of the above provides an unique experience in its own way.
Whether you are on the costliest tour or the cheapest, it is finally the visit to the rain forest that provides the excitement.
Each tour provides it's own program and so one needs to choose carefully.
Seeing the Jaguars, the Anaconda, the Cayman crocodile, the piranha, the sloth and other exotic fauna and flora is the beauty of this tour.
Staying in the jungle lodge is another exciting way to see the rain forest and see how the locals live or coexist with the Amazonian animals.

We did a 4 day 3 night tour of the ĺmazon Brazil Tours was very professional and helpful when booking at the office in Manaus. Our guide Cobra was amazing in all ways and even did some extra trips that were not on the itinery. Both David and Cobra spoke very good English.

The lodge was comfortable with A/C and good plentiful food. The trek through the rainforest, dolphin spotting on the river, seeing the milky way in the sky at night and sleeping in the rainforest in a hammock for one night were some of the highlights.

Overall it felt like a professional and ethical company with well paid and happy staff. Would definitely recommend.
