Brazil Jungle lodge tours and adventure activities
Having decided that you want to be slap bang in the middle of nature, surrounded by the Amazon - the largest, densest rainforest in the world; where your early morning alarm call is the cry of macaws right outside your window, you are now on a mission for
a life-changing jungle tour. So, what can you expect?
All excursions are accompanied by experienced specialized jungle guides, who will usually be bilingual, with a passion for nature and will be well versed in the locality's history and culture.
The range of activities and jungle adventures on offer will depend
on your choice of adventure package tour. While some activities will already be included, additional ones can be booked at your village lodge. These can include all or some of the following:
Hiking through untouched rainforest
Visit to a native indigenous people's dwellings
Explore of the Amazon via dug-out canoes
Learn about survival techniques and medicinal plants/herbs
Bird watching for exotic species
Fish for black piranhas or tucunaré (Peacok bass) Caiman night exploration
River swimming near the Amazon village near Manaus
Regardless of where they are located, lodge tours will all follow a similar pattern of activities on trips. Eearly mornings are usually favoured for nature walks, well before the heat start to take effect. These morning treks are magical
moments for spotting all kinds of wildlife such as sloths, anteaters, monkeys, toucans and macaws. You will also witness
some of the most diverse fauna and flora than you will ever see
in any other jungle anywhere.
After lunch, there are usually excursions of some kind such as
fishing for piranahs, or a trip to the spectacular 'meeting
of the waters', near Manus. This is where the dark waters of the Rio Negro river and those of the Amazon's Solimões, collide most dramatically into each other.
Depending on your lodge location, you may well get to experience and see many other wonderful things on your jungle tour
adventure such as feeding dolphins or observing pink dolphins, bird watching and many other jungle adventures.
There is no slacking off after dinner either! You can experience
the thrill of a boat expedition to hunt for Amozonian caiman -
jacaré, with your guides using just the basics of powerful spot
lights. Spotlights stop the reptiles dead in their tracks, making
it possible for some of the juveniles to be temporarily removed from the water and giving you a chance to touch them.
As you have seen, there are a variety of tours you can choose from to suit your particular interest. One thing is for sure, you can
expect spectacular jungle scenery and once-in-a-lifetime type experience on any Jungle lodge tour.
