  • Program of Urubu River Upstream - 4 days/3 nights by Amazon Antonio Jungle Tours

    The Amazon is my home!

    I grew up in the South of the Amazon in the jungle along the riverside, a real caboclo. My parents taught me all about the forest. How to survive there and what you can use from the forest (fruits, medical plants etc.)

    My dream was to have my own company and work with the native people. This was realized in 2007 when I started with my own company Amazon Antonio Jungle tours in Manaus. I also started building my own ecological lodge on the Urubu River, with help from the native people. I'm very happy I could realize this dream. The main reason why I love this job is because I like to share knowledge and experience of the forest with other people.

    What to bring on the tour:

    Long-sleeved t-shirt or sweater, trousers, t-shirt, shorts, walking boots or trainers, raincoat, swim cloths, sun block, mosquito repellent, had/cap, pocket knife, flashlight, sleeping bag or blanket for when camping in the jungle, a bottle for water , binocular if you have one.
