ABOUT OUTLINE: 

Here, on this page, we will detail about 75% of your expedition outline, with an approximate list of the most genuine and essential activities carried out every day by an authentic Amazonian indigenous person with a single purpose, which is their subsistence. Together with our native team, we will guide you step by step to live this same experience, in the best selected Amazonian territories of the region, unique jungle areas which have a lot to offer throughout the year, and regardless of the current season of the year. Now your complete and better detailed outline will be sent to you once we receive your request.

 

Right in these vast Amazonian territories with little access that we have selected to conduct our most complete and realistic jungle operations over the years, we'll be able to easily execute our "Nomadic Survival Expeditions" without restrictions compared to other Amazonian territories around, and where we'll immerse travelers into the depth of the Amazon rainforest to live the adventure of a lifetime undoubtedly.

 

Please keep in mind that the listed activities below are unavoidable key activities to concretize our upcoming Nomadic Amazon Survival Expedition very much in our Amazonian nomadic style,  and the execution of some, many or all of the displayed activities offered below, will always depend again on several important factors such as; the number of days you're requesting to stay with us (10 or more) total travel days, weather conditions, water levels of (main rivers, tributaries, streams, creeks, swamps), mental and physical strength of each traveler within your group, etc.

Remember, remember, remember!..... the longer we explore the jungle, the more extensive and intensive your experience will be, and the more you extend and intensify your experience, the more remote, isolated, challenging, and interesting your journey will get. That simple.
