Northeast Brazil is a land of outstanding contrast: From gorgeous white-sand beaches, to arid,cactus-topped plateaus, and the humid montane slopes in between, this region has all the beauty and
diversity that any birder could ever hope for. Perhaps what this area is best known for, however, is the stunning array of beautiful endemics that flourish in the diverse habitats of Ceara, Pernambuco, Alagoas, and Bahia. With this in mind, our tour explores all the best sites in this fascinating region,
and offers an impressive bird list that includes Lear’s (Indigo) Macaw, the striking Araripe Manakin, and mythical White-collared Kite! We offer this tour in conjunction with our Northeast Endemics Part II: Bahia and Beyond tour for a fully comprehensive exploration of the riches of Northeast Brazil.

FINANCIAL ARRANGEMENTS:

person sharing.
A single supplement of US$650 will be charged if you wish to have single accommodation. If RBT cannot provide you with a rooming partner although you choose to share, the single supplement will
become applicable. We will make all reasonable efforts to ensure that a rooming partner is found if you do wish to share.

This tour fee includes:
 All meals from lunch on day 1 to breakfast on day 15;
 Bottled drinking water;
 A beverage with meals;
 All lodgings;
 Ground transportation;
 Reserve entrance fees; and
 All guiding services (including tips for local guides and services).

The tour fee does not include:
 ANY airfares (See above);
 Visa fees;
 Any drinks other than mentioned above;
 Special gratuities; and
 Telephone calls, laundry and other items of a personal nature.

IMPORTANT NOTES:
a) Due to constantly fluctuating exchange rates, we now quote our tours in 4 currencies. The tour price is however fixed only in the currency printed in bold (US dollars), 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.) Approximate domestic flight (where applicable) and single supplement rates have been converted to US$ but are also subject to exchange rate movements.
b) Rates are based upon group tariffs; if the tour does not have sufficient registration (a minimum of 7 paying participants) a small party supplement will have to be charged.
c) Furthermore, these costs are subject to major foreign exchange fluctuations and 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 M17026 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.

Tipping:
As noted above, gratuities (drivers, hotel staff, porters, restaurants etc) are included on this tour. However, this does not include your M17026 leader. If, therefore, you feel that he has given you excellent service, it is entirely appropriate to tip him.

Special Notes:
In some areas, 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). There will also be a few lengthy drives. Should you have any physical limitations or medical conditions please notify us in advance of departure.
The vehicles we use are comfortable although we should expect some bumpy roads depending upon local road conditions.
Accommodation is generally comfortable throughout the tour although air conditioning is not available in some areas, and hot water might be scarce at one or two locations.
