Brazil has a dense and complex system of rivers, one of the world most extensive, with eight major drainage basins, all of which drain into the Atlantic. Major rivers include the Amazon (the world second-longest river and the largest in terms of volume of water), the Paraná and its major tributary the Iguaçu (which includes the Iguazu Falls), the Negro, São Francisco, Xingu, Madeira and Tapajós rivers as its shown in Brazil river map.
Amazon River, Portuguese Rio Amazonas, Spanish Río Amazonas, also called Río Marañón and Rio Solimões, the greatest river of South America and the largest drainage system in the world in terms of the volume of its flow and the area of its basin. The total length of the river—as measured from the headwaters of the Ucayali-Apurímac river system in southern Peru—is at least 4,000 miles (6,400 km) as its mentioned in Brazil river map, which makes it slightly shorter than the Nile River but still the equivalent of the distance from New York City to Rome. The Xingu River, also called Rio Xingu, is a 1,230-mile long, (1979 km) river in north Brazil; it is a southeast tributary of the Amazon River.
The Paraná River (Spanish: Río Paraná, Portuguese: Rio Paraná) is a river in south Central South America, running through Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina for some 4,880 kilometres (3,030 mi). It is second in length only to the Amazon River among South American rivers. The Tapajós, a Brazilian river running through a humid and hot valley, pours into the Amazon River 500 miles above Pará and is about 1200 miles long as you can see in Brazil river map. The São Francisco is a river in Brazil. With a length of 2,914 kilometres (1,811 mi), it is the longest river that runs entirely in Brazilian territory, and the fourth longest in South America and overall in Brazil (after the Amazon, the Paraná and the Madeira).
