Xingu Lodge

Located on the Rio Xingu in the Brazilian Amazon, Xingu Lodge focuses primarily on fly fishing for giant payara. These fish are the ultimate apex predators and have become known for their vast teeth and aggressive behaviour.

The Fishing

After many years of research, the Rio Xingu provided the best and most reliable fishing for large payara. Located close to Kendjam, the river is protected by the indigenous land of the Kayapo people, and it is a great honour that they have decided to share this area.

The lodge has exclusive access to these protected waters known to hold payara that reach more than 20 pounds. The clarity of the river allows fly anglers to target payara with a range of different fly fishing techniques and the waters hold not only large payara but also peacock bass, wolffish, and more.
