AMAZON ECOPARK Jungle Lodge is a touristic, scientific and educational property, created and directed by a private initiative back in 1991, opening its doors to the public as an Ecotourism Lodge in 1995. Several streams of clear water run through the area. Over 6 miles of jungle trails including un-catalogued species, natural savannahs and creeks enable clients to explore the jungle, observe orchids and giant trees.

Localization

The Amazon Ecopark Jungle Lodge is located 1 hour from the Manaus International Airport (including the 30 minute boat ride to the Lodge pier). It is built amid the largest concentration of flora and fauna in the middle of the Amazonian basin at the banks of Rio Taruma, a tributary of the Rio Negro (Black River).

Amazon Ecopark Jungle Lodge's privileged location offers clients comfort and a safe jungle experience.

Accommodations

Amazon Ecopark Jungle Lodge has 60 apartments distributed in 20 bungalows. Each unit has three apartments, made of concrete and wood. All rooms have independent entrances, porches and bathrooms, all with air conditioning, electric showers and screened windows. The bungalows, although rustic, are pleasantly decorated and provide much comfort (night light, carpet, indigenous decorative objects, etc.)

Night tours in canoes



Depart lodge in paddle or motorized canoes, to appreciate the sounds of the jungle at night, with the possibility to spot small alligators (or other nightly creatures). Alligators are spotted because their eyes shine like small red lights, once the alligator is spotted by the guide spotlight, the guide will try to catch a small alligator with his own hands and bring it on to the canoe, and a brief explanation of their habitat follows. The alligator will then be safely released back to the river. (No harm is done to any of the animals)
