As the 2024 season at Kendjam approaches, we thought it timely to look at the unforgettable angling experience on offer here in the heart of the Amazon. A fly fishing holiday in Brazil really is so much more than just an angling expedition. Add fascinating indigenous culture, fabulous wildlife, birdlife, and scenery and you’ll have a truly memorable experience.

Among the highlights of a fishing holiday at Kendjam are:

Prime fly fishing – The clear waters of the Iriri River are teeming with peacock bass, pacu, matrinxã, bicuda, the mighty wolffish and more. The catch-and-release policy ensures thrilling sport while preserving the river’s vibrant ecosystem.

Wildlife encounters – Beyond fishing, immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of Amazonian wildlife. Spot colourful macaws, elusive jaguars, and playful river otters during your stay.

Cultural immersion – Engage with the local Kayapó community, learning about their deep connections to the land and their sustainable practices that protect their ancestral home.
