Night Time Jungle Exploration & Alligator Spotting

Program Overview
Country: Brazil

Take a riverboat cruise under a starry Amazon sky into the dense jungle backwaters. At the jetty in the Lake January Ecological Park, transfer to motorized canoes. Glide silently into the flooded forest and its countless overgrown tributaries. Armed with only a flashlight, your guide will attempt to locate caimans (alligators). Attracted by the light, their eyes shine like rubies. Watch as the guide attempts to catch one of the smaller reptiles with his bare hands and lift it out of the water for you to see. Unharmed, the caiman will then be returned to the water. The thrill of catching a caiman, plus the mystical surroundings of the forest at night makes this quite a unique and exciting experience.
