It all began in the 1970ties when Vitória Da Silva Carvalhos father founded a small town called Alta Floresta in Mato Grosso, Brazil. His intention was to create a town for farmers in harmony with the surrounding nature. But he attracted the wrong people. Cattle famers and gold diggers came and started cutting off the Amazon rainforest in large. So Mr. Da Silva Carvalho died with a broken heart. Soon after his daughter Victória decided to rescue as much of the forest in the area as possible with her own private savings. In the late 1980ties she got the idea to install some huts in her private jungle to make the second largest diversity of birds in the world visible to sustainable eco-tourists. And especially to gain some income to save more of the surrounding jungle. The concept worked due to recommendations of well known international scientists. By now the huts are transformed into a nice lodge and Victória even got two airlines to fly to Alta Floresta.
Go there, enjoy the luxury of the jungle and help saving it!
