Amazon Jungle Tour

This page describes what a typical jungle tour experience will be like. We chose to go with Antonio's Jungle Tours but there are several to choose from that are reputable. These ecological tours focus on getting you far from Manaus where a lodge is set up for several days worth of activities. Antonio's is located on the Urubu River bank, 200 km from Manaus. There you get a feel for the real Amazon and learn about its flora, fauna and ecosystem. At the same time, you get a choice of staying in a comfortable room with toilet and shower or you can sleep in a hammock in an open room where many people are sleeping. The pictures on this page show the lodge, the surrounding terrain and getting there, which required a 3 hour comfortable air-conditioned bus and a 1 hour boat trip up the Urubu River. Activities at the lodge: swimming, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, wildlife viewing, a lookout, eating and sleeping. Short trips from the lodge include a night canoe trip trying to find caimans (alligators), a boat trip out to see a sunset and another for a sunrise and bird watching. Tours include all meals during the tour, mineral water, accommodation at the lodge and hammocks for when camping in the jungle, all activities, native English speaking guide, and all transportation during the tour.
