CNN Meteorologist Reynolds Wolf to Lecture on Rainforest and Climate Aboard International Expeditions’ Amazon Voyage
BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Nov. 19, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — Reynolds Wolf, a veteran meteorologist and correspondent for CNN Worldwide, will join International Expeditions’ April 1, 2011 Amazon River journey as a guest lecturer. During the 10-day tour, Wolf will lead discussions on the impact of the Amazon rainforest on global weather and climate.
International Expeditions, the world leader in engaging and authentic nature travel, is known for providing high caliber lecturers, who help deepen the experience of journeys to natural outposts. Wolf will be joined aboard the 28-guest La Amatista riverboat by a team of knowledgeable Peruvian naturalists, who will lead a full educational program with lectures on wildlife, history and geography, and field interpretation during daily excursions.
Since 2006, Wolf has covered wildfires, floods, winter storms and earthquakes. He reported live from hurricanes and tropical storms along the Eastern Seaboard, Bahamas and Hawaii. Wolf spent much of 2010 reporting on the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, and was the first at CNN to fly with the U.S. Coast Guard over the former site of the Deep Water Horizon.
In addition to insightful educational programming, daily outings on this small-ship adventure take travelers deep into the pristine Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve for explorations on excursion boats to spot wildlife, hikes into the rainforest, and even piranha fishing. Guests also spend time with riberenos in their remote villages, handing out school supplies to children and meeting a local shaman.
During their Amazon cruise, guests travel in comfort aboard the 28-passenger La Amatista riverboat. When not in spacious air-conditioned cabins, guests can relax in the dining parlor, stargaze on the open-air top deck, or sip cocktails while enjoying the evening entertainment, courtesy of the ship’s local crew.
Prices for the 10-day Amazon journey start at $3,498 per person, and include accommodations, excursions, complimentary laundry aboard La Amatista, guides, transfers, and tips to porters and waiters for included meals.
International Expeditions has been named to Travel + Leisure’s list of “World’s Best” tour operators for seven consecutive years and to National Geographic ADVENTURE magazine’s list of “Best Adventure Travel Companies on Earth.”
