At a jungle lodge by private room, shared room by bed or hammock, if you do prefer you can stay at a native family house combined with overnight in the jungle. From here we invite you to have your (first) jungle experience for adventure or study your specific interest in flora and fauna and get acquainted with the way of life of the local population.
You may not come across practically any animal species found in the Amazon region as the jungle is very dense huge trees and it makes easier that the animal see us first .. There is no hunting, professional fishing and no tree is felled ofcourse only the trees they get for ther need. That is why we can guarantee you a stay on a unique location in an unspoilt environment. Your eyes lose themselves in these magnificent surroundings, with water all around, jungle and panoramic views, in short, beauty in complete harmony.

ACTIVITIES AROUND ARARA
We offer you a flexible programme which will be composed according to your interest and available time. Our guides, with many years’ experience, will accompany you during your stay at Arara. If necessary we make use of locally known guides and the local population.
Among other things the following activities and excursion are included in our programmes:
Exploring the flooded rainforest:
The canoe is the only possible means of transport for entering the flooded rainforest (lgapós and lgarapés) in order to observe the flora and fauna near the river. Besides experiencing the beautiful landscape with its panoramic views, sunrise and sunset, you will be informed about the geography and history of the Amazon area.
For early birds (5.30 a.m.). When the sun rises and the quiet water changes into a mirror, we listen to the sound of birds leaving their nests and beginning their day. But also other animals wake up and the howler monkeys with their deafening noise can drown out many a bird.
Piranhá and other fish:
The afternoon is pre-eminently suited for going fishing. Especially for the well-known Piranhá, but of course also for other Amazon fish about which you will be informed extensively.
After sunset you go by boat, through the darkness of the rainforest, to listen to the mysterious sounds of the night. In the light of a flashlight you can see two red lights and you look straight into the eyes of a crocodile.
Several routes lead you through the overwhelming jungle to areas hardly ever trodden before. You will see enormous hardwood trees and all kinds of nut and fruit bearing trees. Our guides will tell you about the flora and fauna, medicinal plants and their use by the population.
Survival techniques in the jungle:
You will learn about the knowledge and techniques which enable the Indians to survive in the jungle.
Visit to the local population:
The visit to a local family gives insight into their daily life, customs and housing. Their main, economical, activity is growing and cultivating manioc, fishing, and winning and processing rubber. They will tell and show you everything about the use of animal life and the more than 3000 species of fish which serve the locals as basic food.
FOR SPECIFICALLY INTERESTED GROUPS
For Botanists, Biologists, Fishermen, Photographers and Birdwatchers guides with specialised knowledge are available. Our country offers the possibility to study and research flora, fauna and the eco system in which life goes on in an undisturbed way.
The location, directly on river Parana do Mamori, which connects three lakes, offers every possibility for fishermen to pursue their hobby.
Not only because of the quantity, but also the size of fish, like Pirarucu/Arapaima, Tucunaré and Aruaná.
Study and research:
Far away from civilization, with unspoilt nature all around, our area is perfect suitable for studying the flora, fauna and ecology of the rainforest. For biologists and specialised nature lovers every opportunity for making observations and doing field work is present.
