4. Manaus: 3-, 4-, or 5-Day Jungle Tour at Amazon Boto Lodge
Discover the Amazon Rainforest on a 3-, 4-, or 5-day trip from Manaus to Amazon Boto Lodge, a Jungle Lodge where all activities and meals are included. Ride a speedboat, walk through the jungle, search for native wildlife, and more. Stay overnight in private air-conditioned rooms.
The lodge is located 120 kilometers south of Manaus by lake Juma, an area surrounded by a virgin forest. The lodge was built on stilts in an isolated area in the jungle with a view of the lake and jungle. The location does not disrupt the natural environment.
Sleep in private suites with air-conditioning and bathrooms. The Lodge is a simple and clean place, perfect for groups interested in exploring the Amazon Jungle. Rest assured you won't be overrun by guests: the lodge hosts no more than 18 persons at a time.
Lunch and dinner are generally made up of regional fresh fish, chicken, beef, beans, salads, rice, vegetables, and fruits. At breakfast, enjoy bread, cheese, eggs, coffee, milk, juice, tea, and fruit.
Day 1:Following morning pickup, head to the Ceasa Port and take a speedboat to the Meeting of Waters, the point where the Rio Negro and Solimões River meet.
From there, you’ll be taken to the Careiro Village on the other side of the Solimões River. This excursion continues by car or van for about 1 hour to Maçarico Lake. A final trip by speedboat takes you to the lodge.
In the afternoon, the day’s activities begin. Leave the lodge by canoe for dolphin and bird watching, as well as piranha fishing. End the day by observing the sunset before heading back to the lodge for dinner. At night, go caiman (cayman) spotting, a truly thrilling experience.
Start the morning by traveling by canoe to watch the sunrise in the Amazon Rainforest. Return to the lodge for breakfast before heading out for a jungle trek that takes up the rest of the morning.
During the walk, learn all about medicinal plants, trees, and insects. Along the way, you might even see some monkeys. Your day continues with afternoon activities, including a canoeing adventure in a flooded forest.
From September to February, enjoy a guided trekking activity. Spend a few hours quietly passing through the exuberant Amazon jungle while learning about the flora and fauna from your guide.
After dinner, go out on a motorized boat for the night safari and spot some wildlife along the rivers and small channels. Spend the rest of the night at the lodge.
Day 3:For approximately 3 hours in the morning, visit the home of a local family to learn about their simple but wonderful way of life in the forest. Return to the lodge for lunch, then return to Manaus if you chose the 3-day option.
If you booked the 4- or 5-day option, after lunch, go out to explore some more small channels and spot birds, monkeys, caimans, and dolphins. Optionally, learn about nocturnal wildlife by staying overnight in the forest and going spearfishing.
After breakfast, go trekking in a different area where you’ll learn survival techniques and plenty of facts about the forest. If the 4-day option is booked, end your trip by returning to Manaus after lunch at the lodge.
If you chose the 5-day option, go camping in the woods and spend the night in the forest with your guide.
Following breakfast, go on a canoe trip to explore and swim in the lake. Return to the lodge for lunch before heading back to your pickup point in Manaus.
