Pirarucu Lodge, Brazil
Pirarucú Lodge is a Brazilian destination whose primary focus is to fish over and catch an unprecedented number of aprapaima – the often illusive, prehistoric and tarpon-like game fish that many consider the ultimate jungle trophy. Here anglers will fish in the Mamirauá Reserve, Brazil’s first Sustainable Development Reserve which totals more than 1 million hectares and was created first and foremost to preserve aprapaima and their habitat. In addition to the hard fighting, aerial arapaima, the reserve offers great fishing for timbaqui, a large pacu like fish, the exotic arowana and yellow peacock bass. The region is characterized by long chains of lakes and interconnected channels. During the wet season, it is a world renowned destination for birders. When the water drops in the fall, the angling opportunities reach their peak. Guests will stay at a simple, floating, solar-powered, eco-tourism lodge built from native hardwoods. The lodge features ten floating cabins. The lodge is also very suitable for guests keen on a range of general eco-tourism activities.
Pirarucú Lodge is currently offering a rare and special promotion where four anglers go for the price of three. In other words, if you have a group of four, the fourth spot is free. Experience the spirit of the jungle with this incredible opportunity!
