Expedition Team

Our team is essential to the quality of your experience


A seasoned Lindblad expedition leader and a knowledgeable team of Peru travel guides and naturalists accompany this voyage. Most of the naturalists were born in towns along the riverbanks and educated in schools in Iquitos. Each has worked with foreign research teams or at eco-friendly rain forest lodges before joining the Lindblad team. All are fluent in English, and their personal knowledge, gained from village elders, along with their scientific training makes for a fascinating narrative, as authentic as it is well informed.
