Combine the wildlife wonderlands of the Pantanal wetlands and Amazon rainforest on this first class adventure, staying at strategically located First Class wilderness lodges with expert naturalist guides. In-between you will visit the lesser known but equally dramatic Chapada dos Guimarães, a land of waterfalls, caves and rock formations waiting to be explored. Finish with days of relaxation and iconic sightseeing in the incomparable Rio de Janeiro.
One of the world's most spectacular big cats, there is nowhere better to spot Jaguar's than in Brazil's Northern Pantanal. In recent years there has been a very high success rate of finding these creatures on dedicated boat safaris from Porto Jofre, with the help of the outstanding local guides. If you picture the Amazon when thinking of Jaguar-spotting, forget it, the Pantanal is the place to go.
Just a few hours drive from Rio de Janeiro, you will find paradise beaches, dramatic coastal scenery, mangrove forests, waterfalls, and ample opportunity for hiking and kayaking. Stay on stunning Ilha Grande, in the colonial seaside town of Paraty, or Saco do Mamangua, the only tropical Fjord in Brazil. Or even better, combine all three (with Rio) for an unforgettable two week adventure.
We often like to suggest things that are off-the-beaten-track, but in the case of the famous Iguazu Falls we just can't resist! No other series of waterfalls on Earth compares to the size, scale, and mesmerising beauty of this place. Surrounded by rainforest, you are also likely to see Capuchin Monkeys, Toucans, Aracaris, Agoutis and Coatis (Jaguar's have also been spotted, but are very rare).
You can visit Brazil year-round, with the most popular being their summer (Dec-Mar) for the warmest weather (plus Carnival), and the northern hemisphere school summer holidays (July & Aug). There are fantastic wildlife-spotting and beach-break opportunities in-between these busy periods, so there really is no bad time to travel!
In high season hotels and lodges can be fully booked more than six months in advance, and for Christmas, New Year and Carnival often more than a year beforehand.
