Holiday review by Caroline Moore

Date of trip: 11/09/2010
Number of people: 1
Country: Brazil

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Overall a brilliant holiday and very well organised from start to finish. This is the second holiday I've booked with Tribes and would highly recommend them."
Tribes Service: "Dan was very helpful, from suggesting the initial itinerary and making the changes I needed to ensuring that I had all the information before I went"
Guides: "Excellent"
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "I felt that the holiday in the Pantanal benefited wildlife and locals as they used local people, produce and tourism will encourage protection of the wildlife. I'm less certain of the benefits in Iguazu and Rio."


Hotel das Cataratas
Very high standard of accomodation and good service even though I checked in at 2am. The location right next to the falls is worth it as you can visit before the park opens and the crowds arrive. It is expensive though.
SouthWild Pantanal
Rooms on the houseboat are fairly basic but have everything you need e.g en-suite, air con, power points and the food was excellent. You're not there for the quality of the rooms but to see the wildlife so this was fine.
