Brazil

The sheer size and scale of Brazil is perhaps its most intriguing and formidable quality. Covering almost half of the entire continent, Brazil is a country of superlatives….it is home to the evergreen mass of the Amazon jungle which is the largest tropical rainforest and the most diverse eco-system on earth; the Pantanal is the greatest wildlife wetland region on the planet and the Iguazu Falls are without doubt the most awe-inspiring of all waterfalls.

In search of Jaguar

Jaguar, Pantanal

The remote Caiman Reserve is located deep in the Pantanal and is one of the best wildlife sanctuaries in Brazil with the highest density of jaguar population. These stunning big cats are visible day and night along the river banks where they come to the river’s edge to drink, rest and hunt their favourite prey of caiman & capybaras. The lodge has on-site specialist jaguar researchers and it is possible to head out with these guides in search of these elusive cats. Other wildlife you may encounter in the Pantanal region include Giant river otters, Giant anteaters, anacondas and tapirs.

Ride the dunes of Jericoacoara

Jericoacoara dunes, Brazil

An adventurous buggy ride and hike will take you to the Pedra Furada, an arc of a huge stone carved by the action of waves and weather. Refresh yourself in one of the many natural pools en route before you arrive at Prea Beach, where you see kite surfers fly high above the waves of one of Brazil’s most popular kite surfing destinations. For those keen on some adventure then this is the place for some spectacular dune bashing in buggies or sand boarding down the huge sand dunes before you relax in the Blue Lagoon, famous for its beautiful blue and green fresh water.

Brazil is an all year round destination however there are many local weather patterns. January to March tends to be warmer so ideal for the February carnival in Rio, but there can be rain at this time.

April to October is the drier season along the Green coast around Rio so a nice time to visit with slightly cooler temperatures. This is also the best time for wildlife viewing in the Pantanal and Amazon.

November and December tend to see rising temperatures across the country.
