Kendjam Lodge, 2021 Season | End-of-Season

We are very proud to have completed this special season, which went down in lodge history as a “new beginning” for our lodge, clients, and fishery!

With one year of rested water and relaxed pressure on the fishery, it was incredible how quickly we saw results: crystal clear water and amazing fish - spawning more than ever.

The fishing, plain and simple, was spectacular. The average of fishes landed in the season was 12 fish per angler/day. On top of high fish count for each week, we were able to celebrate some striking records and new species captured in the river we have caught 16 different species during this season.

In the first week alone we took advantage of lower than usual water levels and wet waded at the first possible opportunity. There was clean water and lots of fish, ready to eat - the perfect equation!

Mother Nature was quite generous with us this year, and allowed us to see several jaguars, anteaters, ocelots, tapirs, turtles, and birds of varied species. The wildlife here proves that fishing is about so much more than catching a fish!

Kendjam is a special place, not just because of its pristine and unexplored nature, but for who comes to the lodge. This season was no different than the others, we made new friends from all over the world and learned so much with and from each one of them. On behalf of the whole Kendjam team, we would like to thank everyone who shared the Kendjam experience with us this year, it was truly amazing!

On a separate note, we successfully implemented strict protocols with vaccinations and distancing. Our goal was to take care of our staff, customers, and one of the most important pillars of our project, the indigenous community. It was amazing to accomplish this and keep the Kayapo people healthy and well.

At Kendjam, we are always looking ahead to the next time we get the privilege to share the water with you again. We are getting huge demand for bookings for our 2022 and 2023 season, so we are setting our sights for new opportunities, records, and experiences!

We hope to see you next season!
