Days 1: Today we transfer you from Manaus airport or your hotel to the Amazon Ecopark Lodge, a 30 minute boat ride away, on the banks of the Rio Taruma. After everyone has settled in there will be time to enjoy a visit to the Monkey Jungle. Later in the evening, Dinner and trip by canoe for Alligator Spotting and then Overnight at the lodge.
Day 2: We awake to the fresh morning mist and the magical sounds of the jungle coming alive. After breakfast we set off on a Nature Hike: with over two million species of flora and fauna the thick, impenetrable jungle will have you in awe of its immensity! We return for lunch and time to relax, after which we visit the homes of caboclos, local Amazonian residents with the opportunity for piranha fishing. The notorious piranha is perhaps the most feared freshwater fish in the world. However, it is a common misconception that they are vicious man-eaters – in fact, the majority of species are not carnivorous and they make a delicious meal, if you manage to catch them … with the help of our experts!
Day 3: In the morning we will have Breakfast and then depart for a full day tour to the Meeting of the Waters with lunch. Enjoy the spectacle of the “black water rivers”, the biggest of these being the Rio Negro which is a phenomenon that can be seen from space as this dark river converges with the Amazon mainstream. Following this excursion there will be an optional canoe ride with the opportunity for Piranha Fishing. Arrival at the lodge by 17h30. Dinner and overnight at the lodge.
Day 4: Breakfast. Free time to enjoy the natural pools. Check-out at 11h30 and transfer to Manaus for your flight.
