Orlando and his team were super friendly, professional, and helpful. They did their best to make sure we were having a fantastic time.

The rooms are quite new, and the food was absolutely outstanding. The lodge is quiet and very peaceful, making it the perfect place to relax and disconnect. We did countless tours, either by walking or by boat. Orlando and his guide tried to show us as many plants, animals, and local specialties as possible.

We also really liked Orlando’s engagement for wildlife preservation and respect for the local flora and fauna.

Thank you for this real jungle experience! We can recommend this place to everyone who wants an authentic and adventurous jungle experience while respecting the surrounding nature.

Had a truly magical and unforgettable time in the jungle with Orlando. Orlandos nature spotting skills were first class and we saw a lot in the time we were there including: a sloth,four types of monkey,frogs,a plethora of bird life and some impressive lizards and insects!! Orlando was an extremely good guide..he was friendly,caring and very flexible. He ensured that we got absolutely everything that we wanted to get out of our time in the jungle and I now consider him a friend. After camping in the jungle we then spent time in Orlandos lodge which was perfectly situated near the river and was a great place for wildlife spotting! Even here at the lodge we still felt immersed in the jungle and the facilities were very clean and comfortable . The food was also great! Orlando went above and beyond to make sure that we had an awesome time...we even got the chance to release a beautiful woolly monkey called jasmine into the wild! A strongly recommend Orlando as a guide and I strongly recommend staying in his lovely lodge. Thank you Orlando!

Best guides, nice lodges, and amazing food!
Orlando my guide and owner of Red Uakari transported me personally to the lodge. I had my own lodge building to myself and had a choice of amazing activities to choose from each day. We went on many hikes into the Amazon and Orlando is an amazing guide. He knows where to find everything from monkeys to the amazing pink and grey river dolphins!Orlando is an encyclopedia of knowledge about the ecosystem and animals of the Amazon. We also went fishing several times and cooked what we caught in the lodge kitchen, including catfish and river bass. Orlando is also a member of the nearest village and we had the unique experience of hanging out and playing volleyball and soccer with the local villagers. To top everything off they have an amazing chef who prepares three amazing meals a day for you. It really was an amazing experience and I recommend staying with Red Uakari if you are going to the Amazon.

Not only was this this exciting and adventurous, but i genuinely felt at one with the Jungle and the People. Orlando, our guide, helped us to feel welcomed and comfortable within the depths of the jungle, giving us both freedom and welcomed guidance throughout the trip. For anyone wanting an authentic, exhilarating and beautiful experience, this is the place to go. We had so much freedom as two girls simoly wanting to explore! Please message me with any questions!

Awesome Lodge deep in the Amazon Jungle - Fantastic time at RED UAKARI LODGE
I highly recommend this Amazon Jungle Lodge. I am a seasoned traveler and have spent trips in “the bush”. This was my second trip to the Amazon Jungle and by far the best experience. I spend 4 days in the lodge with an awesome team of people. Orlando and his family run a first class lodge. The food is excellent, the houses are newly constructed - but in the “typical” fashion of native housing - with a few enhancements - like showers and toilets. Orlando and his team built the lodge using native techniques - no surprise as he and his brothers were born and raised in a small Amazon village and subsisted off of the land. They jnow all of the flora and fauna in the jungle and are expert guides. Orlando is multi lingual and his English is excellent and easy to understand. I confess that my primary purpose of the trip was to see and fish for the mighty Arapaima. The team found the prehistoric monsters for me in a remote lake and we landed one and safely released it back into the wild. I loved staying at the RED UAKARI lodge. It was a great jungle experience with newly constructed lodge houses. The last lodge I stayed at in the Amazon was no where close in quality or service. I highly recommend this lodge for a true Amazon experience with native guide Orlando. I came as a visitor and left as a friend!

A short flight from Lima to Iquitos We were greeted by our guide Orlando .. a 2.5 hour car ride we arrived in Nauta and took a river boat about 1.5 hours to the Jungle lodge. What an amazing experience as you went farther and farther into the remote area. We were provided w three meals a day with great portions and Marco the chef takes pride into every meal. Alejandro our boat driver and bait catcher :) is training to be a guide and learning English. You can tell how serious he takes his job and is so kind wanting the guests to have the best time possible. Last but not least the man who knows quite possibly everything about the Jungle, Orlando. Always smiling and laughing. Activities included bird watching, piranha fishing, sloth holding, trip into the village for volleyball, jungle trekking, a lodge party we orchestrated and dolphin watching and a day fishing trip. It does get very hot and humid during the day from 11-4 so that’s when we took our showers. Bring water wicking clothing and everything seems to stay damp. We had no cell phone service for 5 days but it was exactly what I needed. I left the Jungle well rested, destressed and felt like I was home the entire time I was there. Orlando and his staff are a real 5 star experience.
