LODGES/ACCOMODATION

Amazon lodge Uacari – Mamirauá Reserve

Amazon lodge Uacari – Mamirauá Reserve

The Amazon Lodge Uacari is part of Mamirauá Reserve’s Ecotourism Program, which main objectives are to generate income for the local communities, to strength their organization and to create incentives to promote conservation of the natural resources. Apart from the naturalist bilingual guides, all members of the staff of this Amazon Hotel are local people and work in temporary basis through a rotation system.
Composed by seven connected floating structures made out of wood and covered with thatch, the Amazon Lodge Uacari was designed for minimum environmental impact, with appropriate technologies such as rainwater collection, solar power for lighting and water heating, and a sewage filtration system. It has limited number of visitors and provides comfortable accommodation, good food and exceptional tours and activities.

Due the huge productivity observed in both aquatic and terrestrial systems of the Brazil Amazonian floodplain, guests at Amazon Lodge Uacari will join on a fabulous trip through pulsating environments on water bodies and dense tropical forests, which are bursting with exotic fauna and extraordinary flora. The Amazon Lodge Uacari provides also visit to local communities and research stations.
