Our Fly-In Floating Bungalow Camp is the perfect fishing tool for accessing difficult to navigate regions of the Amazon lowlands, providing full mobility and surprising comfort. On arrival from the US, you travel directly to our Floating Bungalow camp via a new, state-of-the-art, 8 passenger Cessna Caravan turbo prop floatplane, effectively eliminating commercial flights, long (5-7 hour) boat travel or expensive daily Fly-Outs.
