Full description

This Amazon survival tour will bring you into contact with nature and you have the possibility to learn as much as possible about the forest.

Day 1:

At 8 am, be picked up from your hotel in Manaus and taken to Caesar port. Here is where the amazon survival tour begins. Your first taste of adventure is a cruise down the Rio Negro on a speed boat.

The first stop: Catalao. A floating village where you will see the largest scaled fish in the world, The Giant Arapaima Gigas. Touch them if you dare, but don’t worry, although they are strong, they are harmless. Take a chance to feed them, and admire their mega size.

The next stop is the fascinating phenomenon called the meeting of the waters. This is where the black waters of the Rio Negro meet the brown waters of the Solimões River.

Amazingly, the two colors don’t mix, and don’t forget to take selfies for your social media pages. From there, take off to the lodge for lunch. Delicious local cuisine is served at noon.

Next is your first taste of Amazon survival. You will trek into the jungle to set up your first night’s camp. After dinner, you’ll be finishing the day with a trip through the darkness of the amazon night to some cayman spotting by boat.

Day 2:

Then, it’s off for a jungle hike from 8 am until 11:30 am. Your guide will teach you about medicinal plants, spiders, and trees. You might even see some cheeky monkeys.

From day 2 you will enjoy lunch under the majestic canopy of the Amazon rainforest.

At 3:00 pm, take a canoe through the flooded forest and the small channels. This is an excellent opportunity to see and learn about the flora and fauna of this fantastic Amazon jungle. It’s also your chance to fish like a native in the hunt for some feisty pirhanas.
