What to Expect
Discover the majesty of the Amazon rainforest on a 6-day wilderness adventure tour and cruise around the waterlogged jungle by motorized canoe. Camp out at a native riverside dwelling, sleep in hammocks in the equatorial atmosphere, and look out for alligators on a nighttime safari excursion.
Transfer to Ceasa Port from Manaus Airport or city center hotel. Cruise by local boat, via the Meeting of the Waters, where you will experience the cappuccino mingling of the black waters of the Rio Negro with the white waters of the Amazon River.
Cruise to Careiro for a transfer by van and then speedboat along the Amazon River to your lodge accommodation. Acclimatize to the pristine rainforest environment during dinner and your overnight stay.
Depart at 05:30 to see the rainforest sunrise. Then, following breakfast, prepare for your jungle safari, with an introductory briefing on basic jungle survival. Depart in motorized canoes after lunch, traveling for about 3 hours until your reach a native "caboclo" riverside dwelling. This is where you will camp for the next three nights, enjoying the wilderness first-hand and up-close.
Dinner will be served near the riverside dwelling, and is followed by a cruise into the jungle after dark looking for alligators. Sleep overnight in hammocks.
Spend the next 3 days deep in the jungle, learning wilderness survival techniques, including camping and campfire cooking. Take daily excursions, mostly by paddling canoes through the tangles of forest. Look out for Amazon wildlife, which can include sloths high in the trees, shy pink dolphins swimming in the river, and clouds of butterflies fluttering over the riverbanks.
On day 5, return to the lodge in the afternoon, where you will be welcomed back with a survivor’s cocktail and a proper bed for the night!
