travel with us
Take a journey through Mother Earth’s beautiful natural garden and experience a slice of paradise on Earth with Belo Shabono. Our rustic boat cruises offer a serene feeling that can specially be found in the Amazon. Before long, you will call this place home and find yourself more mindful and more connected – more connected to yourself, to mother nature…and to each other.
Belo Shabono is a custom-built wooden boat that was created by local craftsmen with a focus on sustainability and authenticity. It is modeled after the classic Brazilian Amazonian design, offering vintage style and modern amenities that minimize impact on our environment. Our special care to details and unique features create an atmosphere of warmth, coziness, and peace. You will be welcomed by the soft harmony of the regional birds, the calm of the infinite rivers, and the beauty soul of our indigenous people. This is an authentic glamping expedition – a true Amazonian experience.
We will navigate primarily on the Rio Negro (black river), and its gorgeous lakes where the acidic water prevents mosquitoes from developing. Our excursions consist of kayaking and canoeing on the river, walking in the jungle, visiting local traditional villages, and learning about the history and culture of the rainforest. We will get to appreciate the local creatures – swimming with pink dolphins, watching sloths in the trees, searching for alligators in the night, and early morning fishing for piranas. These experiences are curated by our bilingual, naturalist guides who accompany us and help us uncover the fascinating wonders of the region.
Dining with Belo Shabono is a true gastronomic experience made with local ingredients, fruits, and fishes. Creating a comprehensive and delicious menu, our chefs curate the best Brazilian cuisines to meet each passenger’s needs. There will also be plenty of time to relax with coffee or tea, or a glass of select South American wine or local beer. Spend your time being mesmerized by nature and the remarkable sunsets.
Belo Shabono offers a superb glamping Amazon river cruise perfect for a small gathering, a family cruise, or a couple wanting an exclusive, special experience in the Amazon. The boat has one cabin with two beds and air conditioning and hammocks that make your experience a very authentic one.
Get ready for the experience of a lifetime with Belo Shabono!
