The Rio Ucayali and Rio Maranón share a mighty rainforest just before they combine to give birth to the Amazon River. They bound a region known as the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. The largest protected natural area in Peru, with 10,800 square miles, it stands today as one of the largest and most important wildernesses in all the tropics.
The Pacaya-Samiria is home to some of the largest populations of wildlife in all the Amazon. Hordes of pink and gray river dolphins, packs of howler and squirrel monkeys, massive flocks of brilliant macaws, huge lagoons covered in giant lily pads teeming with fish of all sizes and colors....all of these and more mark the region as Another World.
