The Jaguar House Boat, anchored just north of the Taiama Reserve, offers 9 comfortable cabins, all with bunk beds, private bath and air-conditioning. Each cabin has 02 bunk beds, so the top bunk is usually used for luggage. The air conditioned dining room is equipped with TV, sound system and bathroom. There is a nice panoramic deck from which you can enjoy the view of the surrounding wilderness, while enjoying a cold drink.
The Taiama Reserve is a federally protected area; it is not open to the public and no tour operator is permitted to take tourists onto the reserve itself. But since the reserve sits on an island in the middle of the river, visitors are free to circumnavigate the reserve in search of the elusive jaguar. Jaguars are visible day and night, we frequently spot them along the river Banks when they come to the river's edge to drink, rest and hunt their favorite pray: caimans & capybaras, and are best spotted between mid-June and mid-November, often from only 20-30 meters away.
