Amazon Jungle Tour In Manaus

We realized our Dream of an jungle adventure.
After a search on the internet, we booked an 8 day tour with Amazon Backpackers.
The owner Claudio picked us up personally at the airport.
The first night we spent in the Amazon Hostel, a small pension near the opera house.
The next morning we left Manaus with our guide.
From the port we went with a speedboat over the Amazon River.
We stopped in the middle to observe the meeting of Rio Negro and Rio Solimoes.
The two rivers flow side by side for miles without mixing and form the Amazonasriver.
Next we went with a VW bus (the old model from the 70s, which is still being built here) to a small village,
where Zicinha (small Zico) picked us up and brought to his lodge.
Within 2 hours we changed the metropolis of Manaus for an idyllic jungle location beside a small river.
The next two days we spent fishing, Swimming, canoeing and trekking in the vicinity of the Lodge.
After that we went with a small outboard deeper into the jungle to the Juma Lake.
There we built a camp and spent three nights with crazy noises in the night.
We felt like Klaus Kinsky in Aguirre, the Wrath of God.
Sammy was a wonderful guide, he knew the look well with medicinal plants, and knew almost all the animals we met like this:
various species of monkeys, sloth, armadillo, paca, caiman, anaconda, tarantula, buzzard, hawk, heron, kingfisher, hummingbird, piranha, peacock bass and many more.
The last few days we spent with a local family, we enjoyed the simple life of the civilization.
We learned how to make cassava flour and one night we caught a Tucunare with the spear.
Enjoying the sunset in the hammock, swimming with pink dolphins, fishing and grilling fish. What more could you want.
Unfortunately, another 25 years until retirement, then hopefully the Amazon is still intact, we would like to retire here.
