With an excellent riverview location this settler family has chosen to live about two days distance by canoe downstream from Manicoré.  Rio Madeira is a tributary to the Amazon river.

A family excursion.

Mother, father and two kids taking a trip on the Madeira, a tributary to the Amazon-river.

The locals in the Amazon region still carve dug-out canoes from trees in the rainforest. The river is often the main transportation route and the canoe is a common and convenient way of moving around.

Did a stop over at  Manicoré when travelling the Amazon by boat between Porto Velho and Belém.

It´s a small settlers community at the Rio Madeira a couple of days
river journey from Manaus.

Me and my friends heard about a jaguar
that recently had been shot and decided to visit the family that had taken care of the kitten..

This beauty will grow to become the largest feline in this part of the world.
