Summary

Stay in one of the remotest lodges in the Amazon, in your own floating cabin! Uakari Lodge is perfect for intrepid travelers who want an in-depth rainforest experience. This rustic yet comfortable lodge sits in the Mamirauá Reserve, an area of immense biodiversity, and the largest area of protected flooded forest on earth. There are endemic species here including the red-faced Uakari monkey and the black-faced squirrel monkey.

The Lodge
There are 10 rooms at Uakari Lodge, in five floating bungalows which each have two bedrooms. Every bedroom has its own private bathroom. The rooms have a terrace with views of the river and forest. Public areas consist of a central floating area with a deck, kitchen, bar, restaurant, library and video room.

Socially Responsible & Sustainable
Energy at Uakari Lodge comes from solar power. Rainwater is collected and used. Waste from the lodge is treated before returning to the river. The lodge is made from recycled materials such as tiles from recycled bottles. Management is shared between the communities of the reserve and the Mamirauá Insitute. The aim is to generate income for local people and in doing so protect the natural resources. The majority of employees come from the riverine communities with each working about 10 days a month at the lodge before returning home, allowing people to balance working at the lodge with traditional life in their community.

Location
Uakari Lodge is in a remote part of the Amazon towards the Peruvian and Colombian border, far from major settlements. To get here, travel first to Manaus, then fly deeper into the Amazon Rainforest to the town of Tefe. From Tefe, a boat journey takes you to the lodge.


Activities
The lodge offers three and four night packages (which can be combined into a seven night stay). The activities vary according to the time of year, between May and July, the whole reserve is flooded by snow melt from the Andes and much exploration is by canoe. There is a network of trails through the forest designed to maximize wildlife viewing. Groups are kept to a maximum of six people. On community visits, you’ll learn about the history and way of life of the river communities of the area. During your stay at the lodge you’ll have the opportunity to meet researchers from the Mamiraua Institute who’ll tell you about their work. All excursions are led by expert English speaking guides. At certain times of year, special trips are offered including jaguar and birdwatching trips, ask us for more information.
