Manaus is the starting point to most Amazon jungle adventures. Capital of the state of Amazonas it is a city of 1.7m people, some 1´450 km from the Atlantic, located close to the conference of the Rio Negro and Rio Solimões. It is the heart and hub of Amazon travel and commerce, an intoxicating mix of historic buildings, (including the famous 19th century Teatro Amazonas - the Italian Renaissance Opera House), modernity, indigenous culture, a busy river port and a bustling market with an unforgettable atmosphere.

The city first came to prominance during the rubber boom, when it became a trading centre for all the activities of the Amazon. The city is surrounded by the imense forests of the entire Amazon region, the world's largest remaining tropical rainforest, representing over half of that remaining on the planet. It´s rivers contain more than one third of the earth's fresh water flows and the biological diversity that exists is astounding, including many animals unique to the Amazon.

More than 2200 species of fish and more than 250 species of amphibians and reptiles and countless species of birds and insects. Indeed more than one third of all species in the world live in the Amazon Rainforest. And about 1/4 of all the medicines we use come from rainforest plants. From Manaus many possibilities exist to explore the jungle.

A stay in one of the jungle lodges, set amongst the rainforest, usually starts with a collection from Manaus by boat. The lodges providing guided exploration, by boat, canoe and on foot into the forest, where the visitor can learn about the fauna and flora of the forest, go fishing, swim, watch aligators by night and much more.

Alternatively one can enjoy the Amazon by cruising the river on a luxury cruise boat, with onboard acommodation. The cruise boat provides daily guided programmes for the passengers, such as treks into the forest, or exploring the tributaries of the Amazon on smaller motorised boats.

What to Do

All the lodges offer several interesting programmes:

- Take fascinating rides by canoe or motor boat on Amazon tributaries.
- Try piranha fishing.
- Enjoy birdwatching
- Take guided treks into the rainforest to learn about the nature of the area.
- Visit local communities and see the local indian way of life.
