Amazon: Juma Jungle Lodge

Program Overview
Country: Brazil

Designed to be totally integrated into the jungle, the Juma Jungle Lodge is built on stilts over the lake. It is a small, rustic yet comfortable lodge which is approximately three hours by boat from Manaus.  The journey to this remote location is a great trip in itself as your boat passes through the Meeting of the Waters, wide rivers and deep jungles.

The itinerary is jam-packed with opportunities to gain insights into the Amazon. The first day is teeming with iconic Amaon images. See the Meeting of the Waters and then view the giant water lilies of Lake January. Explore the igarapés (Amazonian creeks) and the igapós (flooded forest). Enjoy Amazon cuisine. Search for nocturnal animals on motorized canoes. The second day allows a deeper exploration of the area, starting with a jungle hike. During the afternoon, test your fishing skills as you tempt piranha and peacock bass. The evening is satisfying as you feast on the fish caught that afternoon. The third day may indeed be your favorite as you visit the house of a local villager to learn more about their fascinating culture.
