Full description

Day 1:

At 8:00 AM you are transferred from your hotel to the Ceasa port where a speed boat takes tourists to the meeting of the waters, the point where the Rio Negro and Solimões River meet. During the Journey, there is a stop to visit the Fish Farm of the Arapaima gigas (pirarucu).

From there you are taken to the Careiro Village on the other side of the Solimões River. The excursion continues by car (van) for about one hour to Mamori River.  A final trip by speedboat takes you to the lodge, arriving there at approximately 11:30 AM. At 3:00 PM the activities begin. Leave the lodge by canoe for dolphin and bird watching, piranha fishing, and end the day watching a spectacular sunset around 6:30 PM, and then head back to the lodge for dinner. At night you will enjoy a thrilling experience of Cayman spotting.

Day 2:

At 5:30 AM, you are taken by canoe to watch the sunrise of a new day in the Amazon rainforest. Return to the lodge around 7:00 AM for breakfast. Shortly after, you will do a jungle trek that takes up the rest of the morning.

During the walk much is learned about medicinal plants, trees, and insects such as spiders and there is even a chance of seeing monkeys. If the 3, 4, or 5-day option is booked, the afternoon activity starts at 3:00 PM. A canoeing adventure in the flooded forest and small channels. Spend some hours quietly passing through the Amazon jungle while observing the flora and fauna explained to you by native guides.

After dinner, go out on a motorized boat for the Night Safari, where there will be a good chance to spot some wildlife along the river and small channels in the Amazon.

Day 3:

From 8:00 AM-11:00 AM, visit the home of a local family to learn about their simple but fantastic way of life in the forest. Return to the lodge for lunch, if the 3-day option is booked, and depart for Manaus at approximately 1:30 PM, arriving at approximately 4:30 PM. If the 4 or 5-day option is booked, take the chance to explore the small channels and spot some birds, monkeys, Caymans, and dolphins after lunch. Optionally, take the chance to learn about the nocturnal life by staying overnight in the forest, with a chance of spearfishing.

Day 4:

Learn survival techniques and plenty of facts about the forest. Have the opportunity to spearfish, trek, and canoe. Return to the lodge, where lunch is served. If the 4-day option is booked, leave for Manaus after lunch, and arrive at around 4:30 PM.

If the 5-day option is booked, prepare yourself to camp out in the woods and spend the night in the forest escorted by a professional guide.

Day 5:

Return to the lodge at around 11:00 AM. After enjoying lunch, leave the lodge and head back to Manaus.

Wonderful Amazonas Adventure

Our trip, guided by Emilson, was very interesting and simply wonderful. We liked everything about these three days. Emilson has great knowledge about the nature and the animals living in the Amazon and speaks very good English. The lodge is comfortable, nice and is a good starting point for short trips into the rain forest. The food (3 meals a day) was very good and they also offered drinking water 24h. We had a lot of fun and can only recommend it to everybody, who is interested in an Amazonas Trip. It was very adventurous for us, but never dangerous. It was perfect! Thank you!

Experience to live without any hesitation

If you are looking for an incredibly beautiful experience do not hesitate you will not be disappointed !! This activity is really very well organized by Joshua but also, his brother, the local guide Titan and all the people (the drivers, cook ...) who participated in making this expedition incredible. We left with 4 adults and our eyes were not big enough to observe all the wonderful things to see during this stay. We were particularly able to observe the many dolphins that swim next to the boat, the many varieties of birds, sloths, monkeys, crocodiles with the added bonus of the photo with a crocodile caught by our fantastic guide Titan, and many other surprises during this stay. The accommodation is of high quality for the area and the food excellent. You will not be disappointed with this experience which will remain for us the most beautiful of our Brazilian stay (even more beautiful than the Rio carnival !!).
