INNER CIRCLE EVENT

THIRDHOME members joined Wade Shealy, THIRDHOME‘s Founder and CEO, and Roger Conner, Senior Vice President of Business Development at THIRDHOME, for a Peruvian Amazon Voyage aboard the elegant Zafiro riverboat to discover earth’s greatest wilderness. They delved deep into the pristine Pacaya-Samiria Reserve, a 5-million-acre labyrinth of flooded forests, lagoons and peaceful creeks. They traveled upriver from the inland port of Iquitos aboard the Zafiro and explored villages and tributaries not accessible by any other means for an authentic immersive experience filled with extraordinary wildlife, flora and fauna. While aboard, they enjoyed luxurious amenities, tasted fresh Amazon fusion cuisine, viewed wildlife on hikes, fished for piranhas, explored by small-boat excursions and kayaks along the Amazon and met the welcoming locals of the riverside villages.

VOYAGE HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Connect with fellow THIRDHOME travelers, chat with your local guides or enjoy snacks and a drink in the large indoor lounge.
  • Glide past the Amazon rainforest and clusters of wooden houses on stilts as you sip morning coffee and take-in the fresh air from the river’s most luxurious Observation Deck.
  • Siesta on a cushioned lounger beneath a soaring canopy and ease into the Zafiro’s outdoor Jacuzzi to relax after a shore excursion.

Accommodations

Travel aboard the Zafiro, a luxurious vessel chartered by International Expeditions. Your accommodations for the cruise entail a rich blend of stylish designs and modern comforts. Classic touches include magnificent floor-to-ceiling windows and – for those on the Upper Deck – private balconies. A ship staff and crew of 25, including a cruise director and local naturalist guides, are joined by an Expedition Leader to ensure an unprecedented level of service. All 16 spacious suites are air-conditioned and feature en-suite bathrooms, a desk and ample closet space.
