Highlights

Pantanal

Encompassing the world’s largest tropical wetland area and one of the 27 Ramsar Site´s in Brazil, Pantanal is the best place in America to see wildlife – only second after Africa in the World. Aside from big animals such as the caymans and jaguars, the birds and amazing storks are the ones taking a smile from you every time you look outside and see a giant nest of a Jabiru or the colorful Roseate spoonbill flying over the river during sunrise. 

Atlantic Rainforest

When Portuguese colonists arrived in Brazil in the 16th century, they found this exuberant luch green vegetation, the Atlantic Rainforest, from south to north of the country and in great extensions inland. Nowadays, less than 7% remains from this biome, mostly preserved in protected areas, keeping endemic and rare birds such as the Amazona vinacea (purple chest parrot) and many other beautiful birds.

The Amazon

The largest rainforest in our Planet is the home of many bird species. Its mysterious environment keeps incredible encounters for the quietest observer.  The Nightjars are a gift for those who can spot them and the Tucans can show up in dozens during sunset. The Guianan cock-of-the-rock must be pursued in the caves and arenas, but it´s worth every minute to see this amazing bird and its colors.

Caatinga

Also one of the two kinds of Brazilian savannah, Caatinga means the “white forest” due to its very dry vegetation, similar to a desert in some aspects, encompassing the inland portion of the country´s northeast. It suffers with long droughts during the year, but once the rain season comes around November to March it becomes a green season with cactus flourishing. While enjoying the panoramic views of the mountains, valleys and waterfalls, it´s possible to encounter a Helmeted manakin, hawks and colorful hamming birds.

Cerrado

One of the two kinds of Brazilian savannah, Cerrado is an important biome where many water sources are hidden underground. Also facing less than 25% of its original vegetation coverage, due mostly to cattle and agribusiness monoculture, this biome encompasses important protected areas and wildlife in the heart of Brazil. Many endemic birds such as the beautiful Seriemas and animals in danger of extinction are found here, such as the Giant anteater and the Maned wolf.
