Jaú National Park

Whether on board our Amazon cabin – boat, gliding with our silent canoes through flooded forest or hiking terra firme terrain, you will be deeply touched by the untamed wilderness of Brazil's biggest National Park. The Park encompasses 2,272,000 ha and is home to uncountable species of birds, macaws, alligators, anacondas, giant otters, tapirs, jaguars. The Parks’ aquatic system is composed of 3 big rivers (Unini to the north, Carabinani to the south and Jau at the centre) and an infinity of small black water rivers. The water level of the rivers varies drastically during the year. It is the only conservation unit in Brazil that covers totally the basin of a big river, the Jáu with its 450 km extension. The forest at the margins of the rivers are called igapó forests, and are submitted to periods of 6 to 8 months of flooding during the year. The parts of the forest that do not flood are known as terra firme. This type of forest is tropical, dense and humid, with trees that measure up to 40 meters high, like the Samaúma. In this very diverse climate there can be up to 200 species per hectare.
