of fauna,especially birds. Notable species found in the area include:
capybaras, pink river dolphins, monkeys (including black howler,
squirrel and brown capuchin), anacondas - the largest land snake,
caiman and rheas.
This journey begins in Rurrenabaque,
the main harbour to the Bolivian Amazon. Continue on canoes on the
Yacuma River and travel up the river looking for pink dolphins,
monkeys, capybaras, turtles and a great
variety of birdlife from hawks,
ibises, screamers, herons, toucans, macaws and others.
Get into your dugout canoe again
and travel on Yacuma River to find a place to start walking into
the savannas to look for the world's largest snake: the anaconda.
In the rivers you will have a chance
to observe the strange pink dolphins, friendly animals with wich
you may swim and play, turtles, and capybaras. If you like you can

anteaters and monkeys.
