Jungle Survival Tour

For hard-core adventure junkies we’ve created this tour with the input from our French ex-military friends. We venture deep into the jungle navigating the Tiputini river where we set up camp on the river bank. During 5 days we survive only from what the jungle has to offer, foraging and fishing, learning the indigenous way of survival under the guidance of our experienced guides who grew up in these forests.This tour ends with a big celebration back at Mandari lodge.
“Being busy in the jungle for several days you forget the outside world, you forget everything. It is a total reset of the mind and soul.”
Fredy Gualinga (Managing Director & Guide: Amazon Adventure Experience)
