Full description

Explore the Amazon jungle on this multi-day trip with your guide. Travel by speedboat and canoe, trek through the jungle, sleep outside on a hammock, and more. Experience life with a family from the area and spot all types of insects, animals, and plant life.

Day 1:

At 7:30 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 Rivers 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 the Mamori River.  A final trip by speedboat takes you to the lodge, arriving there at approximately 11:30 AM. At 03:00 PM, the activities begin. Leave the lodge by canoe for dolphin and bird watching, and 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 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 PM. Spend some hours quietly passing through the Amazon jungle on a canoe while observing the flora and fauna explained to you by native guides. During the dry season, this trip is done on foot, since there is no water from August to March. When we finish, it’s back to the lodge for dinner.

Day 3:

From 8 AM-11 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, explore the small channels and spot some birds, monkeys, Caymans, and dolphins. At 3:00 PM, leave the lodge to sleep out in the Amazon. Your guide will provide you with hammocks and mosquito nets to camp and help you prepare dinner in a remote part of the jungle. After dinner, you will have the chance to do some spearfishing.

Day 4:

Learn survival techniques and plenty of facts about the forest. Have the opportunity to 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 AM. After enjoying lunch, leave at 1 PM from the lodge. Head back to Manaus and arrive at 4:30 PM to 5 PM.

Great experience with our guide Kennedy. Company taked care of us from start to finish. Experience we took is good for everyone in every age but if youre looking for some more exciting and intense things to do in Amazon you need to take survival option. I recommend Joshua company and would definetly go with them one more time.

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!

Everything was going easy and smooth (pick-up, transportation, accommodation, tours, ...). We did some great piranha fishing, jungle trekking, caiman spotting and saw a lot of wildlife in the jungle. Joshua is a really cool guy, it makes a lot of fun spending time with him and his guides. A recommendation for everyone who wants to experience the Amazonas!
