You will be based throughout the tour at the beautifully located and comfortable Serra Dos Tucanos Lodge, situated in the 46,000 hectare Tres Picos National Park only a relatively short distance from Rio de Janeiro. Here you will explore the numerous mosaics of trails around the lodge grounds and undertake short drives to explore other habitats and elevations surrounding the reserve. You will also visit the nearby Serra Dos Orgaos National Park that holds a number of special birds.

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 also be ample time to unwind and enjoy birding from the lodge grounds or while relaxing by the swimming pool. Fruit trays and hummingbird-feeders placed throughout the grounds attract a variety of toucans, tanagers, parakeets, parrots, hummingbirds and tanagers. Birds are confiding and photographic opportunities will be excellent. This tour captures the very best of Brazil’s Atlantic Rainforest endemic bird species, and after a week's birding you can expect to have seen up to 250 species including 70 endemics.
