What to bring in the backpack

We recommend a medium Backpack, which will be used during your jungle adventure, with the following items:

Travel insurance

  • Due to the extreme nature and risks associated with these trips, we strongly recommend that you take individual travel insurance that reflects your personal and family histories;
  • We inspect the vessels we work with regularly, and carry safety, first aid, and emergency equipment on board;
  • We are also connected with logistics for patient removal by helicopter services available in the region if needed;
  • For your trip, we will also be carrying a low refrigeration antidote for snakebites. It is very unlikely that we will need it, but we take every precaution available to us;
  • Manaus has two very good hospitals, one specializing in tropical medicine;
  • We assume no responsibilities for lost or damaged items and personal equipment and gear during the trip, unless it happens by negligence from our part.

Passport, vaccinations and health report

We will need copies of the picture page of your passport and vaccination cards. Recommended that you take the yellow fever shot and bring medications for any existing previous conditions you may have. I am personally against taking the malaria pill, and there is no proof of its effectiveness.

The side effects can also be greater than the symptoms sometimes, and there are very few cases detected in a single year, but it this is ultimately your choice. Please let us know of any existing conditions you may have that we should be aware of, such as allergies, diabetes, heart and blood pressure problems. We will keep this information confidential.
