Roar in the forest
The duration of Amazon jungle tours varies from 2 to 6 days depending on your starting point. If you are starting from Manaus in the north of Brazil and you want the full experience, 5 days will be the best option for you. During these 5 days you can discover the mystery of the Amazon jungle while sleeping in a jungle residence, at a local family home and going to camp. The best thing about sleeping in the woods is that you can experience different types of wildlife at close range day and night. When you go on Amazon jungle tours, you can go boating, where you can catch piranhas and look for pink river dolphins. It can also be possible to see large caimans while staying in the forest. Walking in the forest, surrounded by spiders, monkeys and beautiful nature, gives you a real feeling. But Amazon jungle tours are not just for walking – you will also learn some survival techniques, which can help you in challenging tropical forests. In addition, when you visit a local family in the village of Kabuklu, where you can spend the night, you will be taught about plants and animals and their unique lifestyle. When fishing on Amazon jungle trips, it is possible to spear a fish for dinner and sleep on a hanger in the jungle. Spending a total of 5 days in the jungle can help you understand nature, live in harmony with your surroundings and appreciate a unique experience that is unmatched by anything else.
When to go?
There is no set time when it is better to go on Amazon jungle tours. It just depends on what you want to see, and then choose the season you want, because both dry and wet seasons have benefits. The wet season lasts from mid-December to mid-May and the dry season lasts from June to December.
Back to when it all started
The state of the Amazon became the state of the Republic of Brazil in 1889 and takes its name from the Amazon River. The state is predominantly a tropical forest, and many riverside towns can only be reached by boat or plane. The capital of the Amazon state is Manaus and it is the largest city in the state. The city has a population of 1.7 million and is located in the middle of the forest. One of the biggest tourist attractions in Brazil is the Amazon jungle, and many travelers go on Amazon jungle tours when traveling to Brazil or surrounding countries. You can also access the Amazon rainforest from Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia.
