Testimonials coming Soon
I have great memories of my first real jungle experience with Lt. Araujo and his team in the Amazon together with my father when I was 17 years of age. They are as profesional as it can get and their experience as jungle rescue commando's for the Brazilian army come in very handy. Let alone the 2 years Lt. Araujo had to spend living among the Yanomamis Amerindians for his jungle survival training. Not only are they tough and effective they are also humorous and kind hearted. If you are looking for a real adventure these are the guys you want to joinand this is the trip to satisfy your craving for adventure!
