Itinerary

01

Day 1

Depart Manaus for the Amazon Jungle & Activities (L/D)
We begin our adventure with a 7:45am accommodation pick-up, followed by an 8:00am departure from Manaus and a transfer to the CEASA harbour, where you will take a speedboat to cross the river to Careiro village. There you will take a van for around 60 minutes until you reach a place called Paraná do Mamori, where you will take a second speed boat to reach the Amazon Jungle Lodge where you will be staying overnight. Upon arrival at 11:00am, you will get checked in, have lunch and get started with your activities.
First you will go for an exciting canoe tour where you can fish for piranha and watch for rare pink river dolphins, depending on the season. We will return to the lodge for dinner before heading back out on the river at night to search for Caiman crocodiles. Keep your eyes peeled as your guide points out these giant reptiles. Return to the lodge for a good night’s sleep.

Day 2

Activities in the Amazon Jungle (B/L/D)
Early in the morning you will see the beautiful jungle sunrise and go on a bird watching tour. Return to the lodge for breakfast followed by an ecological jungle trek from 8:00 to 11:00am, where the guide will explain all about native medicinal plants, some techniques of survival in the jungle, and the animals that you can see during the trek like spiders, various kinds of monkeys, sloths etc. (We unfortunately cannot promise that you will see wild animals, but since Juma Lake is a protected area, there is a good chance you will see wildlife).
After lunch, around 2:00pm, you will leave for an overnight expedition into the jungle, where you will learn about the nightlife of the jungle. Look for nocturnal animals, try your hand at spearfishing, and learn survival techniques in the jungle. Experience the once-in-a-lifetime sensation of sleeping in a hammock to the sounds of the tropical rainforest.
*Note: Sleeping in a hammock is optional - if you wish, you can return to sleep at your lodge
