Wild Brazil Off The Beaten Track
This varied itinerary explores the diverse wildlife of some wonderfully remote parts of Brazil. Firstly visit deepest Amazonia and a unique floating lodge where the endemic scarlet-faced uakari monkey is found. There follows the Parnaiba Headwaters National Park, a stunningly beautiful landscape of red sandstone escarpments, palm groves and endangered cerrado savannah. Wildlife highlights here include hyacinth, blue and yellow, red and green and red-bellied macaws, maned wolves and tool-using bearded capuchin monkeys. Finish with a few days of beach relaxation and snorkelling on Bahia’s beautiful Marau Peninsula, remote and uncrowded. This is a dream tour for the discerning naturalist who may be visiting Brazil for the second time or looking for something decidedly different.
