DARE TO ADVENTURE!
In the heartland of Brazil, surrounded by the great Serra Geral (the major chain of mountains in Brazil), with its rivers of fresh and pure waters, paradise-like beaches, pristine and wild nature, there is one of the last regions where nature has been blissfully preserved: JALAPÃO.
The region is called “ Jalapão Desert”, but is in fact, a great oasis, full of beautiful waterfalls and springs, besides a great variety of flora and fauna of the Brazilian Savanna, (Cerrado)
The activities are many: trekking, canoeing, photographic safaris, sunset and moonrise at the dunes, evenings around a cozy bonfire… And, besides the memories of what you may experience, you will be able to bring a handicraft made with the beautiful Capim dourado, only found in Jalapao.
The beginning of the trip is in Palmas, capital city of Tocantins State, in the north region of Brazil.
The Korubo Safari Camp will provide you a unique experience, enabling a complete interaction with Nature and wildlife.
All our trips are for small groups, reducing the environmental impact and allowing us to offer an exclusive service for our guests.
In our job policy, we search for practices that comply with the Sustainable Tourism. Our structure does not use brickwork constructions: the architecture is fully integrated with the scenery. We also use alternative sources of energy, employ local native workers and stimulate the production and trade of the local handicraft.
The name Korubo comes from an indigenous tribe of Javari’s Valley (Vale do Javari), in Amazon, which is striving to be kept “wild”.
The Korubos are isolated and keep off from non-indigenous people. They are also known as “Caceteiros” Indians, due to the custom of protecting themselves by using wooden cudgels, which are locally called “bordunas”. In 2005, their population was estimated at about 200 people.
