Uakari Lodge is a unique accommodation made up of seven floating wooden structures connected by a floating walkway, located in a remote spot in the Mamirauá Reserve.
Ten large and comfortable rooms have en suite facilities and a private terrace, with views of the surrounding rainforest. The central area has a reception, restaurant, bar, TV room, library and conference room. The restaurant serves essentially Brazilian cuisine, with a focus on typical produce and dishes of the Amazon region.
Designed to minimise its environmental impact, the lodge is staffed by the local community, plus a resident naturalist guide. Three, four and seven-night packages offer activities that include river trips, walking rainforest trails and using a hide.
The lodge has its own speedboats with 40 hp engines, motorized and dugout canoes; the transfer from Tefé to the lodge is by covered speedboat.
