The Rio Roosevelt Lodge is located on the legendary Roosevelt River, one of the last places on earth where great discoveries are still to be made and birds that were thought to be extinct resurface in front of the eyes of the visitors reminding them that they are in one of the most remote places on the planet.
The lodge is the best birding destination in Brazilian Amazon today, with only five air conditioned bungalows set on a beautiful river beach, with nothing but pristine Amazon rain forest in any direction you look.
All of this combined with an excellent infrastructure and a wonderful staff that is always willing to go the extra mile for you, not to mention a chef that will turn every meal in Amazonia into an unforgettable experience.
There are approximately 500 bird species around the lodge. It is hard to describe the feeling of birding in a place where new species of birds are being discovered and birds are seen that until recently were only known by the type specimen.
The possibilities are unlimited, because the lodge has more the 12 good trails, amazing boat rides, with realistic chances to see the mammals such as Jaguar, Tapir and Giant Otter, and a 30 meters high canopy tower.
The Rio Roosevelt Lodge’s specialties include Zigzag Heron, White-browed Hawk, Cryptic Forest-Falcon, Dark-winged Trumpeter, Orange-cheeked Parrot, Crimson-bellied Parakeet, Fiery-tailed Awlbill, Black-bellied Thorntail, Pavonine Quetzal, Gould’s Toucanet, Pale-faced and White-breasted Antbird, Bamboo and Saturnine Antshrike, Pale-faced Antbird, Black-bellied Gnateater, Rusty-belted Tapaculo, Hoffmann’s Woodcreeper, Buff-checked Tody-flycatcher, Snow-capped Manakin, Crimson Fruitcrow, and many others, not likely to be seen in any other lodge in Brazilian Amazonia.
