The Xingu Indigenous Park is one of the largest indigenous reservations in the world. There are almost 6 thousand Indians, from 14 different ethnicities, who use the resources offered by nature for survival. Our operation is concentrated in two villages. The first is called Morená, of the Kamaiurá ethnicity, and it is the Ground Zero of the Xingu River, where it is born from the meeting of three rivers: Batovi, Kuluene and Ronuro
The second village, 40 minutes upstream, is called Arayo and belongs to Ikpeng ethnicity, which was almost extinct before accepting the move to Xingu National Park in 1967.
The package can last five, five and a half or six effective fishing days. As it is a controlled reserve area, the maximum number of anglers allowed per group varies from 6 to 8 per week, with only two fishing weeks per month.
The fishing area at Aldeia Kamaiurá, on the limits of the Morená Indigenous Area,
covers the Ronuro, Batovi, Kuluene and Xingu rivers. The fishing area in Aldeia
Ikpeng, on the other hand, is concentrated in the Xingu River and in the central
black and clean water lakes around it.
The Xingu River itinerary is excellent for big catfish fishing, such as piraíba, pirarara, jaú and cachara, as well as for big payaras, trairões, bicudas, corvinas, peacock bass (Cichla mirianae) and matrinxãs.
The Ikpeng-Morená project values environmental preservation and local customs, involving partnerships between villages, Funai and Ibama. We follow rules and regulations for the practice of sport fishing in the region, not making agreements to operate in areas outside the itinerary. Fish cannot be taken outside village boundaries.
Alcoholic beverages are forbidden in the Park:
Article 58 of the Statute of the Indian establishes that it is a crime "to encourage, by any means, the acquisition, use and dissemination of alcoholic beverages, in tribal groups or among non-integrated Indians".
