Rio & the Wildlife of Brazil

After the thrill of Rio wildlife is your focus, first in the dense Amazon jungle and then in the plains and rivers of the Pantanal, home of the jaguar

13 days from £5200pp plus international flights.

Rio, the Amazon the Pantanal - a fantastic wildlife odyssey in Brazil.

  • Watch jaguars in the wild
  • Explore on foot, by canoe and horseback in the Pantanal
  • Follow walking trails deep in the Amazon jungle
  • Gaze over the forest canopy from a 50-metre tower
  • Live it up in the party city of Rio!

Three of the most uniquely Brazilian aspects of Brazil - Rio, the Amazon and the Pantanal!

Live it up in Rio over three nights including one full day tour. See Sugarloaf Mountain & Christ the Redeemer, the various stunning beaches, and the city's many colonial buildings.

On day four you fly inland to explore the teeming and exotic wildlife of the southern Amazon staying at the remote and fabulous Cristalino Lodge. See the rainforest from the canopy tower, walk the forest trails to see a huge array of birds, and don't miss the mammal clay lick where you might come across tapirs and other wildlife.

From the Amazon you head south to the northern Pantanal. From the lodge we take you to here, you get an almost guaranteed chance to spot jaguars in the wild! This would be the highlight of the trip for many people, but you can also see a variety of other mammal and bird species too.

You're right, it's not a cheap trip, but this is a very special adventure with that rare chance of spotting jaguars in the wild which very few people get to experience. Combining jaguar spotting with Rio and an Amazon adventure makes this a truly fabulous trip. Definitely one for real wildlife lovers.
