Brazil Tailor-made Holidays

Brazil is so blessed with diverse landscapes, culture and wildlife that is has something for everyone, especially the discerning traveller in search of jaguar


The largest country in South America, Brazil is so blessed with incredible diversity, variety, colour and charm that is has something to offer virtually every kind of visitor.

Beach lovers will be spoilt for choice; architecture connoisseurs will appreciate the intact colonial towns; hikers can walk for many scenic miles with barely another soul in sight; and for natural history enthusiasts, the Pantanal and Amazon Basin make Brazil one of the planet’s mandatory wildlife destinations. Reef & Rainforest pioneered jaguar watching to Brazil in 2004: prior to that, seeing a jaguar was virtually impossible in the wild but now the third largest cat can be reliably spotted at certain locations in the Pantanal.

The sheer abundance of flora and fauna to be found in Brazil’s great wilderness regions is beyond comparison with practically any other destination on Earth. Coupled with a good infrastructure, high quality accommodation and a welcoming population, Brazil has become one of our clients’ most popular destinations, and deservedly so.

Best Time To Visit Brazil

Being so large, Brazil has many climatic zones despite being classified overall as tropical. The south can be really quite cool, while in Amazonia it is hot and humid almost continuously. The heaviest rains fall at different times in each region: November to March in the Southeast, December to March in the Centre West, January to April in the North, and April to August on the Northeast coast. The Pantanal is best seen in the dry season, July to October – best to avoid rainy February. The Amazon’s wettest season is from December to May, the driest month being October.

Brazil was fabulous…. The pantanal was also a successful trip and we were well rewarded at the Jaguar Research Centre with jaguar sightings and good pics. We would happily recommend the holiday to hard core wildlife enthusiasts. Many thanks for your help making this all possible.
