Some of the avian gems that will be sought during this tour include Three-toed Jacamar, spectacular Swallow-tailed Cotinga, Saffron Toucanet, Plovercrest, Saw-billed Hermit, Black-billed Scythebill, Giant & White-bearded Antshrike, Blond-crested Woodpecker, Shrike-like and Black-and-gold Cotinga, and the beautiful Brazilian Tanager.
This will be a very comfortably paced tour with no long drives! On some days you will have packed lunches, while on others you will return to the lodge for lunch. There will be ample time to unwind and to enjoy birding from the lodge grounds or even while relaxing by the swimming pool. Fruit trays and hummingbird-feeders placed throughout the grounds attract a variety of toucans, parakeets, parrots, hummingbirds and tanagers. Birds are confiding and photographic opportunities are excellent.
This tour captures the best of Brazil’s Atlantic Rainforest endemic bird species, and after a week of birding you can expect to have seen up to 250 bird species, including 70 endemics!

a) Due to constantly fluctuating exchange rates, we now quote our tours in 4 currencies (see website for all 4 currencies). The tour price is however fixed only in the currency printed in bold (British Pounds), and the actual cost in the other currencies listed will be adjusted according to prevailing exchange rates at the time of final invoicing (usually 3 months before the tour.) The same applies to approximate flight (where applicable) and single supplement rates, which are also quoted in the respective fixed currency.

c) Furthermore, these costs are subject to unforeseen increases in tour related costs and may have to be adjusted as a result.
d) Lastly, we may be forced to change or alter the itinerary and / or the designated leader/s at short or no notice due to unforeseen circumstances; please be aware that we will attempt to adhere as close to the original program as possible.
•It can be quite hot depending upon local weather conditions. On most mornings we will be up and out early to take advantage of the cooler temperatures and wildlife activity.
•This Brazil tour does not require a high level of fitness but participants should be in good general health as some of the forest birding will be done on foot and may require walking for several hours at a time (always at a slow pace).
