My wife and I have just returned from a fantastic one week at Tariri Amazon Lodge and superlatives fail me when describing the lodge and the people who make it all possible.
Although I was born in Brazil, I had never had a truly Amazonian experience and after much prodding from my wife and the in-laws, I agreed to travel with them to the Amazon, and after much trawling the internet I came across the Tariri website. To me, it looked the part and the fact that Germano is a true Amazon rainforest native sold it to us.
Germano has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the forest, its peoples, fauna and flora, and he never tires of explaining and showing things to his guests. Our group's particular interest was birds and Germano took us on several very early morning excursions to find some of the elusive birds that inhabit the Amazon rainforest. He always knew where to find the birds and had extensive knowledge of their habits.
We made several cultural trips to local communities and the unmissable cassava flour house. The highlights of our stay were diving with the pink river dolphins, sunset bird spotting after the rain and seeing the toucans and kingfishers, finding jaguars' footprints on the lake shore near the lodge, and the amazing food prepared by Fabíola.
Germano, Fabíola and their family made our stay very special and we were able to share many great moments in their company, including spending New Year's Eve with them and the other guests.
No request is ever too hard for them to meet; and always with a smile. In short, Tariri Lodge is a MUST for anyone wanting the real Amazonian experience. We look forward to returning in the near future.
I cannot recommend Tariri Amazon Lodge highly enough. It is an Amazonian gem waiting to welcome you.
PS. On a personal note from Lisa (George's wife): Fabiola, thank you so much for the delicious treat of peanut brittle that you snuck into my bag when I left. You are such a kind and thoughtful person, and it is this quality that makes your lodge the amazing holiday destination that it is. The amazing experience of meeting you and your family was one that will remain in my thoughts for many years to come. I hope that we meet again...Lisa x
