If you love the nature - I highly recommend do this tour. The tour guides are real masters about the jungle and provide so much knowledge and expertise. I saw animals from monkeys, pink dolphins to green parrots and Tarantulas. We hiked trough the jungle, built bow and arrow from the trees there - it was incredible. The food what Maria and her team is providing is delicious - they even provide vegan food if you want. Furthermore we visited a local farmer and got to know the process of Manioka. The accommodation is lovely. You have a bath in every room and a fan or an AC. The team was so welcoming and warm hearted. It was just beautiful and I will definitely come back. It is NOT A SAFARI! We are in the jungle so mostly the animals are very well hidden!

This entire experience was wonderful! The staff at the Anaconda Lodge and the tour guides provided superb service and guidance during all activities. They knew exactly where to find all the animals so that we could get up close and personal with them. Our guide, Fabio, was a wealth of knowledge and was so friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this experience, this made my visit to Brazil incredible and unforgettable!

Traveling to the lodge was an adventure in itself. Boat, followed by a ride in a old, but reliable VW van, followed by another hour-long boat ride through the rain forest. Our guide, Kennedy, was knowledgeable and insightful. We really enjoyed a peaceful, pre-dawn, boat ride on the lake with time to listen to jungle sounds including, numerous birds and haunting howler monkeys.

Super trip. An excellent guide who organized our activities throughout the days of our stay. We saw 2 species of monkeys, sloth, iguana, dolphins, various birds, caiman. In Manaus itself, there are many tour agencies offering tours of the Amazon, you can order right on the spot. But how big is the difference in price, I don’t know.

We had a really great time. The tour was very diverse, fun and adventurous and we the guides were very knowledgable and made the tour the perfect experience. Definitely recommend it.
