Surrounded by a huge diversity of unspoiled ecosystems and abundant wildlife, River Lodge is the only eco-accomodation located in the area that can easily take visitors to three nearby rivers (Amazon, Urubu and Preto da Eva River). It is situated close to an Indian reservation, with access to primary and secondary forests at its doorstep.
The management of AMAZONAT is in the hands of Jacques and Cristina van Egeraat, who started the "Amazonat Project" 10 years ago. It has grown over the years to include a reserve of over 10,000 hectares (25,000 acres) with a Jungle Lodge, the new River Lodge and a Jungle Survival Camp. Jacques and Cristina"s dream is to do their part in preserving this beautiful and important part of the world. By making it accessible to visitors, showing and teaching them about the Amazon rainforest and the delicate balance of its many ecosystems, they hope to raise awareness of the importance of preserving this unique and wonderful asset. Through ecotourism they are also able to provide local communities with an alternate way to make a living other than from cutting the rainforest for farming or logging, while also developing their appreciation and understanding of the importance of conserving their surroundings.
