On the way we pass the famous "Meeting of Waters" where black waters of the Negro River meet with the brown colored waters of the Amazon River (Solimões). Waters of the two rivers run side by side for many kilometers before finally mixing. Upon arrival at Acajatuba lodge you will be greeted with a welcome drink before checking into your comfortable accommodations.

Lunch will be served at the lodge followed by a guided canoe tour through the "igarapés" and "igapós". While exploring this part of the mid-Amazon you will get a feel of the mighty Amazon Rainforest that surrounds you at all times. While paddling along the waters the bi-lingual Naturalist guide will explain about the forest, the use of plants and vines and the fauna in this magnificent region. You will return to lodge to enjoy the always beautiful sunset over the Amazon forest.
 
EVE
- After dinner we leave the lodge in small boats. A guide will take us along streams and small rivers in search of the elusive Amazon Caiman. With flashlight in hand he will try to get close enough for a good look. Nocturnal birds and small mammals may also be spotted along the banks of the river. Overnight at the lodge.
(L & D.)

 Day 2  - Acajatuba Lodge - Amazon River and Rainforest

- The early morning hours are perhaps the best time to really appreciate the Amazon rainforest. The sounds of insects, birds and animals will stay in your mind for a long time after you have left this part of the world. Prepare for an early tour to admire the sunrise and the Amazonian birds. After breakfast at the lodge the guides will take us out into the jungle for some adventurous trekking. Along the path they will explain about the flora and fauna of the region.
