The legendary Amazon is one of the planet’s enigmas. It is the world’s largest river basin, and also the planet’s greatest rainforest. Within the Amazon Basin resides a wealth of life richer than any place else on earth, and millions of species still remain undiscovered.

One of the best places to see some of this incredible wildlife is at the Uakari Lodge, situated near the small city of Tefe (1.5 hours SSW by commercial plane from Manaus). The lodge, with its 5 floating cabins, is strategically located off a tributary of the Solimoes River making it an ideal place to observe the abundance of wildlife such as birds, monkeys, caiman, dolphins, fish and much more.
With this DiscoverBrazil package you will also visit the city of Manaus, which is famous for its spectacular Opera House built at the end of the 19th century when the city was experiencing the peak of its rubber boom period. Manaus also has one of the largest and busiest dock areas in Brazil, as well as a bustling port market. Due to flight schedules to Tefe overnighting in Manaus will be necessary .

Day by Day Itinerary

This is a Sample Vacation Package that we have created for customers in the past.

Day 1 – Manaus
Upon arriving at the Manaus Airport you will be met by a private guide who will drive you to your hotel, where you will check in. After your long flight you will probably want to relax and perhaps take a swim in the pool. We suggest the dinner show, which comprises a folkloric music and dance presentation by the pool. Your flight to Tefe leaves early the next day, so a good night’s sleep will help you prepare for the full day coming up next.

Day 2 – Uakari Jungle Lodge
You will be driven to the Manaus airport early in the morning to catch a flight to Tefe. You will be met at the airport in Tefe by one of the representatives from your Lodge and taken to the dock area and then in a speed boat to the Lodge. The boat journey lasts about one and a half hours. You will arrive at the Lodge just before lunch and will be given an orientation by the Lodge manager. After lunch at the Lodge you will have some time to relax and settle in before going on a tour in the afternoon. The tour will be either a walking trail to see wildlife in the flooded forest, or a canoe trip through the small tributaries to see wildlife along the banks of the rivers.

Day 3 – Uakari Jungle Lodge
You need to wake up early at around 6.30am to have breakfast at 7am. Your morning tour will set off at roughly 7.30am. This is the best time to see animals and also the temperature is cooler and therefore more amenable to do jungle tours. You will come back for lunch and then have a couple of hours after lunch to rest and prepare for the afternoon tour. There is a book and video library which you may use at liberty. The afternoon tour departs at roughly 3pm and returns at about 6pm. Supper is served in the main dining room and occasionally the researchers from the Mamiraua Institute will join. One of the evenings during your stay at the Lodge you will be shown a presentation of the flooded forest after dinner. During these 3 days the tours will be a variety of the following:Lake Mamiraua Trip – by motorized canoe to a beautiful lake inside the Reserve, where you will have an opportunity to see a plethora of birds, monkeys, pink dolphins, black caiman and perhaps the pirarucu fish. You will stay at the Lake until sunset and on your way back you will spot nocturnal fauna. During this night spotting you will be able to see various sized Caymans and if you are lucky small fish attracted by the lights will jump into the boat by the hundreds. Daily Walks along one of the jungle trails in the company of experienced guides, to see capuchin monkeys, howlers, uakaris, squirrel monkeys, three toed sloths and hoatzin birds among many other species. Traditional native Indian harpoon fishing where, depending on how dedicated you are, you can expect to catch a variety of fish. Trip to visit a local riverine “Caboclo” village in order to interact and get to know the Amazonian population and way of life. Paddling trips in dugout canoes where you will see a rich variety of birdlife and fauna.

Day 4 – Uakari Jungle Lodge
Today you select from the tours offered above on Day 3.

Day 5 – Manaus
On the last day of your trip you will check out of the Uakari Lodge after lunch and be driven by speed boat to Tefe where you will catch a plane to Manaus. At the Manaus Airport you will be met by a private guide who will drive you to your hotel in Manaus, where you will check in. The rest of the day is free to relax and enjoy your hotel.

Day 6 – Manaus
After breakfast you will check out of your hotel and be taken on a Manaus city tour by one of our private English-speaking guides. You will first visit the Manaus Theater / Opera House and then be taken to either the Indian Museum or the Museum of Natural History (you choose which tour and let your guide know the night before). Afterwards you will be taken on a tour of the port area and the Municipal (a replica of the old Les Halles market in Paris), where you will find a variety of goods, including a wide choice of handicrafts and presents to buy for friends and family back home. Your guide will then drive you to the airport. We are certain that you will have enjoyed your trip and we look forward to seeing you again in Brazil.
