Jurassic park without the baddies! Highly recommend dolphin lodge, they have a huge respect for the wildlife and as remote a location as one could wish. My wonderful guide Mo... More

The Dolphin Lodge is very good value for your money. It's very well organised. You;ll be picked up and dropped at your hotel or the airport, in the morning or in the afternoon. The accommodation is very nice and clean (with your personal frog at the WC!!). The food is good. There are hammocks to relax and you can swim... More

Our time in Dolphin Lodge was the highlight of our time in Brazil (which says a lot). Mo (our guide, and the owner) gave us an incredible glimpse into the wonders of the Amazon jungle- on our canoe trips we would paddle silently through the undergrowth for hours, seeing howler monkeys (and other types), sloths, dolphins, parrots and caiman.

We went to Dolphin Lodge for four nights as part of our honeymoon, which was an excellent decision. It was everything we were hoping for - remote, authentic, personal and unforgettable. We got picked up from our hotel in Manaus and were there only three hours later after an efficient transfer by two cars and two speedboats. The lodge is... More

We booked this trip last minute while visiting family in Rio. They were very accommodating and helpful and easy to reach. It's family owned and run.

Very good time of the year, not too busy. The lodge is rustic and has a real amazonian atmosphere (as it should be in the amazon). The rooms are always clean and mosquito nets as well as fans are provided. The food was simply amazing and the staff really go out of their way to ensure the guests are happy.... More

“Bungalows are best.”

“Stay in the bungalows on stilts. They are a bit far from the main area of the lodge and you have better chances of viewing some animals.”
