Our Iguazu Falls extension trip offers you the chance to visit these amazing falls and spend 4 days birding in some truly spectacular surroundings!

A birding tour to north-east Brazil is a must for any birder wishing to see a serious number of endemics! The caatinga habitat is endemic to Brazil and offers some truly spectacular birding, and this together with the north-east Atlantic Forest provides us with an amazing 15 day trip, birding some of the most threatened habitats remaining in the world. There are many highlights on this trip including Araripe Manakin, Lear’s Macaw, Scarlet-throated Tanager, Caatinga Antwren, White-browed Guan, Gray-bellied Parakeet and Caatinga Parakeet amongst many others!
The Pantanal offers any birder or wildlife enthusiast the perfect combination of great birding and mammal spotting opportunities! The habitat is “birder friendly” as it’s relatively open which makes birding slightly easier and a little more relaxing. It is one of the best places in the world to see the endangered and stunning Hyacinth Macaw together with 100’s of Jabiru Storks, Wood Storks, herons and ibises, waterfowl and literally 1000’s of caimans, this together with excellent chances of seeing Jaguar, fantastic photographic opportunities and spectacular scenery makes a birding trip to the Pantanal a must!
