Survival "II" in the Amazon Jungle - 3 nights

Day 1) About 08:00 we leave our hotel in Manaus and travel by car/Van (1,5h.) to the village and River of Rio Preto da Eva, where a motorized canoe for max 9 people is waiting us. Here we go for about 2 hours by boat on the beautiful and sometimes narrow river, until we reach a lodge where we will have lunch. After this the “real” adventure may start, as we return to the canoe and go deeper into the jungle – experience how to survive in the jungle. We will learn how live as the Indians do in the region, using natural products and objects to make a shelter for the night. We will use branches and leafs from palm trees and banana plants to protect from rain. NOTE: Every night we sleep in hammocks and mosquito net already included in the package.

Day 2) We wake up early in the morning, about 05:00, we go on in our canoe observing the wildlife activities in the daybreak. At 07;00 we have breakfast and then will make a jungle trek to a waterfall, where we may take a bath. In the afternoon we will visit “Cabocolos” (native people) and see there plantation of Maniocs and the method of production of its flour, which is a very important for the local food supply.

Day 3) Breakfast and jungle trek to another waterfall and we will learn about local medicine plants. After lunch, at a jungle lodge, we go on in the canoes and reach a place for overnight.

Day 4) Breakfast and walk back to our “base” where we started. Here we have lunch and take the motorized canoe back to the village of Rio Preto da Eva, where we also will visit a small Indian Reserve named “Beija-Flor” (Colibri).
