Full description

Day 1:

Start your journey with a pickup from Manaus. Head to Ceasa Port and board a speedboat. Cruise down the Rio Negro, stopping at the Meeting of Waters. Continue for an hour and a half by car to Ubim Lake.

At Ubim Lake, hop in another speedboat on a 30-50 minute ride to reach the lodge. Relax with refreshments while your hosts prepare your accommodations.

Enjoy lunch and some free time before heading out by motorized canoe for piranha fishing and birdwatching. Marvel at the sunset from the middle of the river before returning to the lodge for dinner. After dinner, depart again by motorized canoe to search for Cayman and learn more about this most-feared reptile of the Amazonian.

Day 2:

Enjoy breakfast at 7:00 A.M. before setting off on a morning jungle trek. As you hike, learn about the flora, fauna, and medicinal plants found only in the Amazon from your guide. Return to the lodge around noon for lunch.

After lunch, leave the lodge to visit an Indigenous community and attend a ritual celebration of dancing and singing. Return to the lodge for a quiet evening in the jungle.

Day 3:

Have breakfast at 7:00 A.M. and head out to explore local streams by boat, keeping an eye out for wildlife. Afterward, head to a floating house to visit the fish farm of the Giant Pirarucu. You can feed them and feel how strong they are.

Next, see and swim with dolphins, some of the most iconic mammals of the Amazonian rivers. After your swim, head back to the lodge for lunch. If you have chosen the 3-day option, begin your journey back to Manaus after lunch.

If you have chosen a longer tour, head out on a boat trip to the Ariau river to explore the region, enjoying some birdwatching and looking for monkeys and other animals. During the dry season from September to April, go on a hike in the Vazea area.

Return to the lodge to spend the night.

Day 4:

Begin your day with breakfast at 7:00 A.M. After breakfast, hop in a small boat and explore the small channel (igarape) in search of wildlife. Return to the lodge for lunch.

If you have chosen the 4-day option, begin your journey back to Manaus after lunch.

If you have chosen the 5-day option, enjoy some free time at the lodge before heading out to camp overnight in the jungle. Spend the night in hammocks with mosquito nets and enjoy dinner cooked in the jungle over a campfire.

Day 5: 

Once the sun rises, return to the lodge for breakfast. After breakfast, visit a local community and learn about their way of living in the jungle. If you wish, buy some handicrafts made in the community.

Return to the lodge for lunch and to begin your journey back to Manaus.

This was the trip of a lifetime. Joshua and his team were highly organised and punctual and ensured the entire trip ran smoothly. As we went in low season, we had a guide, Kennedy, all to ourselves. His passion for the jungle and river was incredible and he ensured we experienced as much of it as we could in the short time with him (about 3 experiences per day). The accommodation was very clean and comfortable and the air con worked well. The staff spoke very little English but they were clearly having a good time and were very accommodating. The food was some of the best we’ve had in Brazil, which is saying something after coming from São Paulo. Hearty breakfasts of fruit and cake followed by huge portions of fish for lunch and dinner. We opted for the night in the jungle. It was a great experience with a tasty bbq, stargazing, and waking to a beautiful sunrise. But be prepared to be hot and not get much sleep. Overall, I’m very glad we chose Joshua’s Amazon Expeditions!

This tour is excellent! Everything ran seamlessly from being picked up at the airport through to all of the activities. You get to do a lot in 3 days in the beautiful surroundings of the Tucan Lodge. The guide Cobra was amazing - very knowledgeable and looked after us well. Exceeded our expectations!

Wij hebben een fantastische en zeer leerrijke ervaring achter de rug. Dit in de eerste plaats door de zeer betrokken, gepassioneerde, behulpzame en flexibele gidsen. Alles was tot in de puntjes geregeld naar onze wensen. Het motto “klant is koning” is hier 100% van toepassing. We verlaten het Amazonewoud met veel kennis over de natuur en de bevolking. Ik raad het iedereen aan om deze vijfdaagse tour te volgen!
