Uakari Lodge Mamirauá.jpg



Founded in 1998, Uakari Lodge is managed through a shared management between the Mamirauá Institute for Sustainable Development and the communities of the Mamirauá Reserve. An association, AAGEMAM (Association of Tourism Workers and Ecotourism Guides of Mamirauá), was created by the residents themselves in order to organize tourism management and strengthen community organization.


The operation of Uakari Lodge is a project of the Community Based Tourism Program at Mamirauá Institute.


Most of the employees are from the riverside communities, from management to local guides, housekeepers, cooks and assistants. The Lodge's  team works on a rotating basis - each person works an average of 10 days a month and then returns home. The objective is that there is no dependence on tourism and that they can continue  to exercise their traditional activities.
