Journey to the Peruvian Amazon
Join Zoo President John Chapo on the trip of a lifetime to the Peruvian Amazon
Peru | October 1 - 8, 2018
John Chapo will take you on an 8-day journey through Peru in a once in a lifetime tour! Peru is a place blessed with a deep rich history and an astonishing breadth of natural beauty. Begin in Lima, the metropolitan capital of Peru, where world-class cuisine and cosmopolitan city life exist alongside ancient ruins, preserved colonial mansions, and priceless collections of Incan Artifacts.
Fly into one of the broadest expanses of rain forest in the world to cruise the Amazon River. Experience life along the river with visits to traditional villages whose inhabitants find sustenance by the bounty of the jungle and the river that feeds it. See incredible wildlife, including the rare pink dolphins that frolic in the shallows.
Finish off your journey with an optional extension to the world of the Incas and Peru’s most iconic landmark: Machu Picchu. Peru is an experience that cannot be described, only felt first-hand.
