Silversea Expedition Cruises To Rio Guajara

Rio Guajara

A small black water sidearm of the main river will entice us on our first outing to the Amazon and its people. We visit a small community in part of the Verde para Sempre Extractive Reserve, established to protect the lifestyle of the local people. Their activities include small-scale extraction of products from the forest, tending family vegetable farms, fishing and caring for domestic animals including water buffalo. Three important native palm trees are tended and harvested. View more

The Açaí Palm produces hanging bunches of Açaí berries which have become popular as a nutritious food around the world. Perhaps you have tried it? This Brazilian berry was traditionally a staple for the people living in the Amazon delta. Babassu Palms form long hanging lines of hard fruits. Their seed is crushed for an edible oil and starch is extracted from the fruit. Buriti Palms have fringed round leaves and a scaly fruit. The fruit’s flesh is eaten raw or dried and ground into flour and its seed produces an oil. All these palms produce edible palm hearts, leaves for thatching, trunks for timber and sap for fermenting into the local home brew. Palms attract wildlife as do the flooded fields and the gallery forest on the higher banks between the main river and this side arm. Look out for large green iguanas sunning or resting on tree branches. Particularly hard to spot but worth looking for are sleepy sloths. These are specialists of a casual lifestyle of extended sessions of eating and just hanging about.

Excursions in Rio Guajara

Zodiac Cruise with Silversea Expedition team

Our first outing will be at a small black water sidearm of the main river. We visit the small community associated with a buffalo farm and see their lifestyle during the time of the high-water, when their fields are flooded. Low herbaceous vegetation at the flooded fields provides good observation of some of the egrets commonly found along the river, as well as other birds in the area. In the gallery forest on the higher banks between the main river and this side arm we will have good opportunities to find some of the riverside birdlife, as well as sloths and iguanas and with some luck even monkeys or pink dolphins
