In this tour, you will meet the reality of pure nature. This package was made for those up to the challenge of staying in the deep jungle with almost nothing! In this tour, we build our own campsite, sleep on our own hammocks and forage and fish for our on own food (including piranhas) to survive! But do not worry. You will learn the skills to catch your meals, and you will also have one of the best tour guides with you. We will have traditional food as well, such as rice and chicken, to supplement our catch. We will do a lot of trekking to spot wildlife in their natural habitats. While we can’t promise we’ll see everything (because it’s nature), we will have a great chance to spot many interesting creatures in the jungle. The itinerary includes:
Day 1: Same itinerary as Day 1 above to reach the lodge. We leave from the lodge around 3:00 p.m. It will take about 20 minutes to arrive at the campsite by canoe. We will be setting up our own camp and hanging our hammocks where we will sleep for the night. Most of the animal life in the forest is nocturnal, so we will be enjoying the nature’s true sounds!
Day 2: After breakfast we go hiking to look for snakes, tarantulas, monkeys and whatever else we have the chance to spot out there. The hiking lasts about 3 hours, and afterwards we return to our campsite to make lunch. Following lunch and some rest, we set out again for more adventures. We will go creak paddling looking for anacondas, as you never know what you will find in nature, where everything is possible. At night we will happily to listen to Mother Nature’s sounds as the forest really comes alive.
Day 3: We will go canoeing on the lakes, looking for more wildlife. We hope to spot toucans, macaws, sloths, monkeys and many other birds as we take in the Amazon Rainforest's beauty. We also can swim in the Amazon River while searching for pink dolphins in their natural habitat. Afterwards we head back to our base camp to have some food and a short rest. We resume our activities at nightfall when we will go night walking. Please remember to bring long boots, as it can be dangerous at night since most of the Amazon’s animals are nocturnal. Do not forget to bring your own personal items. We will provide you with: mosquito nets, hammocks, mineral water and food.
Day 4: We will wake up early in the morning at 5 a.m. to see the sunrise over the river, and view more wildlife. We will search for dolphins, birds and whatever else Mother Nature wants to show us. Afterwards, we return to the campsite to have one more jungle breakfast. We then pack up our things and head back to the jungle lodge, where we departed from on the first day. At the lodge, we will enjoy lunch and at 1 p.m., we begin the journey back to Manaus.
