Mamori Survival Tour 6 Days of Nature and Adventure Brazil | Amazon

This package is for adventurous travelers who will be taking part in all activities. The adventure will begin at the Amazon Turtle Lodge in a motorized canoe with your English-speaking guide. During the survival tour you will bring some food along and have to build your own shelter using wood, twigs, and straw. The activities take place in a region that has an ecosystem of lowlands (varzea), highlands (terra firme), flooded forest (igapo), and small channels (igarapes) that are perfect for paddling in canoes and observing wildlife.
