Meet Edgar Mohena – Your Jungle Survival Expert
In the heart of the Amazon rainforest, where the lush canopy meets the winding riverbanks, you’ll find Edgar Mohena, a man whose very roots are entwined with the jungle itself. Born in the heart of the Cucama tribe village, Edgar’s journey as a jungle guide began long before he could even pronounce the word “adventure.” For him, the jungle is not just a destination; it’s a part of who he is.
With over 15 years of dedicated experience, Edgar is not your ordinary guide. He’s a walking encyclopedia of Amazonian knowledge, a living map of the rainforest’s secrets, and a seasoned explorer of its hidden wonders. His passion for the jungle goes beyond the superficial; it’s a lifelong commitment to preserving indigenous traditions and sharing them with fellow adventurers from every corner of the globe.

From the banks of the mighty Amazon River to the heart of the Tamshiyacu Yanayacu Reserve, he’s worked in various jungle lodges and resorts, leading countless travelers on life-changing journeys. He’s not just a guide; he’s a mentor, a protector, and a storyteller.
Edgar’s expertise extends far beyond knowing the best path to take or the most scenic spots to visit. He’s a master of the jungle’s natural pharmacy, with a profound knowledge of medicinal plants that have been used for centuries by indigenous communities. He’s a walking encyclopedia on the region’s diverse animal species, from the elusive jaguar to the vibrant poison dart frog.
His commitment to preserving indigenous traditions is not just a profession; it’s a calling. Every tour he leads is a bridge between the modern world and the ancient wisdom of the jungle. He’s dedicated to fostering an understanding of the delicate balance of nature and the importance of preserving it for generations to come.
