Did you know that the Amazon rainforest is one of the largest and most diverse ecosystems in the world? It is one of the most breathtaking and unique places on Earth, and sharing it with visitors from around the world is our greatest passion.
There are plenty of big-name commercial cruises and tour agencies that can offer you an interesting tourist experience, but at Amazon Deep Jungle Tours, we aim to give you something better. All of our jungle excursion packages are centered around our founder’s home village of Maraã, which is a 920-kilometer journey away from the Amazonas capital, Manaus.
Because Maraã is so remote, you will get to experience an absolutely immersive adventure that is unlike anything you have ever done before. All of our guides are local experts who have been living in harmony with the Amazon for their entire lives, so they are able to show you the rainforest as it truly is. This is what sets us apart, and it is why our guests can’t wait to book another expedition with us.
The majority of our tours are designed to showcase the unique and wonderful culture of the village of Maraã. You can choose from a stay with the indigenous people, a trip to Paradise Lake or a camping adventure along the Maraã rapids.
The Indigenous Community Tour
The Maraã community is truly a hidden gem, and this tour seeks to give visitors a real taste of how the villagers live their lives. The Maraã people have lived symbiotically with the Amazon rainforest for generations, and they are more than happy to give you an opportunity to see this firsthand.
When you arrive on your jungle excursion, you will be immediately immersed in the culture of the village and the wild beauty of the surrounding rainforest. While much of your time will be spent learning about how the natives do things like hunt, fish, create food staples and craft items for everyday living, you will also have numerous opportunities to venture into the rainforest as well.
Your guides will show you how to utilize the various fishing and hunting methods that the Maraã people employ, and they will also be able to point out herbs and plants that are used for food and medicine.
The Paradise Lake Tour
Paradise Lake is aptly named because it truly is a wild paradise. The lake region is about seven hours away from Maraã, and you will be able to spend your time enjoying the flora and fauna of the area while learning how to survive in the Amazon with your tour guides.
Not only will you be treated to lessons on spearfishing and bow fishing, but you will also get a chance to catch exotic fish like arapaima, tambaqui and black piranha. There will also be opportunities to see other native birds and animals, and you may even get an up-close look at a black caiman.
The Maraã Rapids Tour
The jungle excursion to the Maraã rapids is all about adventure, survival and getting back to nature.
The focus of this tour is to allow you to become fully immersed in the jungle surrounding the Comapi rapids. During your stay, your guides will teach you useful skills like how to properly build a sturdy shelter, how to track and hunt small animals, and how to fish with nets, bows and spears.
As you explore the region, you will learn to distinguish the various plants that the native people use in their daily lives, and you will get to spend plenty of time on the rapids as well. The local guides are all lifelong residents who love the area, and by the end of your trip, you will likely share that love and passion for the Amazon as well.
The Maçarico Tours
We understand that not everyone can fit a lengthy jungle excursion into their schedules, so we also offer trips to the much closer village of Maçarico that span 2-5 days, depending on your preference.
The jungle survival lodge in Maçarico is only 90 kilometers from Manaus, so even if you can only book a two-day trip, you don’t have to worry about a long journey taking up too much of the excursion time.
Regardless of how long your stay in Maçarico is, you can be sure that every minute will be unforgettable. There are a number of activities that you can choose to do, including:
We are also more than happy to accommodate special requests whenever possible. If there is something specific that you wish to do or experience while you are with us in Maçarico, don’t hesitate to ask about it when you are booking your trip. We love to share as many of the Amazon’s wonders with you possible.
There are a number of reasons that our jungle excursions are completely unique.
First, we are all locals. From our founder Eduardo Tenhave to the guides, the entire team is native to the area. This means that we have decades of experience navigating the rainforest as well as a deep-seated love for the wild beauty of the region.
Second, our connection with the Maraã people is something that no other travel agency has. With us, you get an up-close and personal glimpse into the daily lives of the villagers. You can chat with them, learn from them and listen to their stories. These memories are the best souvenirs that you could ask for.
Finally, with us, you get a chance to experience parts of the Amazon that no other agency can take you to. Our expert knowledge of the rainforest allows us to safely take you to remote regions where you can immerse yourself in the parts of the jungle that rarely get human contact.
