MV Anakonda

MV Anakonda is a luxury cruise boat operating year-round on the Napo River. She accommodates a maximum of 40 passengers and has a crew of 20 offering efficient and personal service. The 18 suites are sumptuous and spacious, each having a sitting area, large windows and an en-suite bathroom with top quality fittings, toiletries and 24-hour hot water.

Much of your time is spent exploring the Amazon, following trails through the rainforest, kayaking along the waterways, watching parrots and parakeets at clay licks and enjoying barbecue lunches by the river. There are opportunities to learn about local communities and cultures, too. Some itineraries offer a visit to a 30-metre observation tower, opportunities to tour villages and schools and the chance to spend a night glamping in the forest.

There is ample outdoor space in which to relax between excursions. Enjoy the views from the observation deck, chat to other passengers in the open-air lounge, and unwind with a soak in the jacuzzi or a doze in a hammock. Inside there’s a lounge-bar, boutique and a dining room. The cuisine reflects the richness of local ingredients and is exquisitely presented. Meals are served out on deck as well as in the restaurant. Tea and coffee are available free of charge throughout the day. Staff at the spa provide a choice of therapies including massage and reflexology.

MV Anakonda operates 3, 4 and 7 night itineraries
