Fly Rio de Janeiro to Manaus
Manaus to Anavilhanas Lodge
Travel by ferry, road and boat to reach Anavilhanas Lodge, a journey of about three hours.
Northern Brazil is dominated by the Amazon Rainforest; a vast tract of tropical wilderness divided by the enormous Amazon River basin. More than half of the Amazon River Basin is located within Brazil, supporting incredible biodiversity with an array of mammals, insects, reptiles and bird species.
Manaus, the capital of Amazonas State, serves as the main gateway into the depths of the Amazon Rainforest. Head downstream by boat to observe the natural phenomena known as the ‘Meeting of the Waters’ where the clay-coloured waters of Rio Solimões meet the black waters of Rio Negro and flow in parallel for six kilometres before converging to form the Rio Amazon.
