Amazon Safari 6 to 8 Days
From Manaus to Rio Jaú around 250 km.
The place, where we explore the Amazon Rainforest on this Amazon Safari tour is the big National Park Jaú. It is a reserve, with natural wildlife. I don’t promise clients, that we will see 100% of the Amazon wildlife, so please have in mind, that not always do we find or see the animals you want. At night we spot many of them and that is why we do the nocturnal observation. There are no inhabitants living in this forest.
