The Amazonat Jungle Lodge is offering in addition to her standard programming combined land/water expeditions in which the guests will stay part of the time at the lodge and part of the time in a regional boat.
In addition the Lodge is working exclusively with the worldwide re-known primatologist (Time Magazine; "Hero of the Planet Year 2000") Dr. Marc van Roosmalen.
Dr. van Roosmalen, discoverer of numerous plant, bird and fauna species is organizing with the lodge exciting educational expeditions to the region of his discoveries.
It is in these regions that Dr. van Roosmalen himself will show the visitor recently discovered numbers of tree species not yet known to science; five bird species (i.e., Thryothorus and Microcerculus), and several large-bodied mega fauna elements, among them 7 monkey species (including the second smallest monkey in the world called 'dwarf marmoset`), two peccaries, one deer, one tapir, a new species of manatee, and even a new dolphin (Inia).
Depending on the season, several of the new species can be observed in and along the river or from observation towers mounted in the middle of the forest.
Moreover, Dr. Van Roosmalen located a number of the deepest and finest known terra pretas, anthropogenic fertile soils manufactured by prehistoric Indians and abandoned at first contact with colonists and Indian invaders hundreds of years ago. During the summer (July-December), unique artistic rock carvings can be admired along some rocky riverbanks.

Finding Vacation Rentals in North Lake Tahoe
The main difference between North and South Lake Tahoe is that most people who live on the lake year around tend to own houses on the northern end. Here you'll find housing developments of the highest quality, serene resorts, campgrounds, beautiful beaches as well as shopping and dining as good if not superior to the choices in the busier, more crowded southern end of the lake. North Lake Tahoe vacation rentals tend to favor the more family-oriented traveler, seeking peace and serenity. Because there are more permanent living facilities on the north shores, there are more houses and condos available for rent to tourists than there are on the southern shores. Furthermore, the resorts dotted throughout the area are, for the most part, more of the smaller, boutique resorts rather than the larger, bustling hotels. Because the northern shores are in California there is no gambling there. This major difference accounts for the total difference in ambiance between the two locations around the lake.

European Car Rental - Top Ten Tips for Europe Travel: Tip #3 Insurance
Car rental insurance has to be one of the most widely misunderstood phenomena of the 21st century.

Spain's property market generally has enjoyed strong growth, with the Costa Brava enjoying a particularly large rise in values. About 20% of foreign owners are more or less permanent residents of Spain, while the remaining 80% bought their property for either holidays or investment purposes.
