Bear in mind, this isn’t your regular “Amazon/jungle activity who everyone can do”; there are no rush, no schedules, no groups of people talking loud. It’s you, them and the jungle. You get to see and feel the forest in a different perspective that not a lot of people get to experience. If you’re running on a tight schedule, this probably won’t be the best option. If you’re afraid of heights you may want to reconsider and really see if you’ll able to overcome it – and if you are, you’ll have an experience of a lifetime.
Leo spent as long as we wanted up at the top of the tree, after setting us safely in hammocks. He spoke with us about the wildlife all around, and educated me on a great deal of fascinating topics. I have a lot of respect for the land, and the wildlife in the area, even more so after this experience. Sitting in the hammock, not talking, and just soaking up the sounds and sights of the jungle is a memory I will forever cherish in my heart. I would go on any expedition with Leo again in a heartbeat.
I’ve spent many times at the Amazon Emotions. And I had the privilege to see it grow from the beginning. The core of the whole thing is that the Amazon Emotions is not simply a business: the family (and the people around them) that runs the Amazon Emotions has a big life mission. They are totally committed and you can tell it from everything that happens at their house/headquarters. I keep coming back to the Amazon to visit them not only to explore the top of the forest, to see amazing landscapes and sunsets, to spot birds and animals…but to be and feel part of a huge project. This is a big inspiration. This inspires me to inspire other people. Thank you Amazon Emotions!
What a wonderful experience! And this is what I REALLY want to point out: the experience, simple and amazing, which is what we were looking for. Our incredibly warm, friendly and knowledgeable host family pampered us with such sublety and humor that we felt quite at home, completely at ease and eager to start our days in the middle of the marvelous rainforest. What an adventure! Was it more expensive than other services in and around Manaus? Absolutely. But don’t forget that you get what you pay for, and in our case we paid for and got excellent service, genuine human warmth, and unparalleled knowledge of the area and its people. Highly recommended to anyone looking for an unforgettable “off the beaten path” adventure in the Amazon.
At Amazon Emotions we aspire to use ecotourism to improve livelihoods and reinforce the conservation ethics of traditional cultures that protect and preserve wild areas and animals. Our philosophy guides our work, and we strive to minimize our footprint to do no harm. We believe that bringing people to the Amazon Rainforest and protecting the largest apex predator, the elusive jaguar, while teaching them to catalogue the flora and fauna, ensures the preservation of an entire ecosystem.
