Pantanal For Birders: This is one of our most popular
trips with first time Brazil bird watchers. Every birder will
enjoy seeing 40 Brazilian endemics or specialty bird
species, including Hyacinth Macaw, Greater Rhea, Bare-
faced Curassow, Mato Grosso Antbird, White-naped
Xenopsaris and much more. Besides seeing 200 plus bird
species, everyone enjoys seeing Capybara, Giant
Anteater, Silvery Marmoset, other primates and other
Pantanal wildlife. A top bird guide can get the group on all
the specialty species and endemics in three or four days,
so we usually add a few additional days at Currupira das
Araras or Chapada dos Guimarães National Park. Besides
this basic five day trip, most birders combine Pantanal with
either the Atlantic Forest or the Brazilian Amazon,
assuring they have a productive trip of 10 days to 2 weeks
with over 400 species. Pantanal birding and wildlife and
high quality guides and trip plans make this trip an
excellent start to Brazil birding, starting at  $2,490.   




Birding Brazil's Amazon Basin: The 6950 square
mile Serra dos Carajás National Park is home to the
richest avifauna of Brazil and South America, with a bird
list over 575 species and growing!, including many rare
and little known species. This makes Carajás one of the
prime birding destinations in South America. During our
trip, we will be looking for White-crested Guan, Bare-faced
Curassow, Dark-winged Trumpeter, the rare Crested
Eagle and Harpy Eagle, Gray-bellied Hawk, Cryptic Forest-
Falcon, Orange-breasted Falcon, Jandaya Parakeet,

Atlantic Forest Classic: This trip is designed for the
birder looking for another excellent South American
birding opportunity, rich in endemics. These trips are also
not that expensive at about $300 per day. Over a nine day
trip, you can bird many of the key birding sites in the
Atlantic Forest, including Itatiaia National Park (and
several key habitats and sites there) and Uba Tuba (and
several key birding sites nearby. Most trips find 260 to 280
species, including 95 Atlantic Forest specialties, with well-
planned itineraries and top South American bird guides.  
Several local hotels cater to bird watchers to make the trip
affordable and productive for birding. Trips from $3,590.
Trips offered throughout the year, as there is no rainy
season here.




Northeast Brazil: The far Brazilian Northeast is
carpeted with a low, xerophitic, thorny woodland and scrub
known as the Caatinga Forest. This peculiar habitat is
unique to Brazil and is one of the most endangered
habitats in South America. The Caatinga habitat is home
to an endemic avifauna which will be our goal during this
trip. Among the species of the Caatinga region, we have
to mention the magnificent Lear's (Indigo) Macaw, with
only an estimated population of 400 individuals in the wild.
The long drives we will be enduring during this trip will
reward us with many other Caatinga specialties, including
Cactus Parakeet, Pygmy Nightjar, Spotted Piculet, Great
Xenops, Caatinga Cachalote, Red-shouldered Spinetail,  
Caatinga Antwren, White-browed Antpitta, Willis's Antbird
and Ash-throated Casiornis, just to mention a few.

Immersed in the vast Caatinga are isolated remnants of
Atlantic Forest that are home to a set of little known bird
species. Worth mentioning are Long-tailed Woodnymph,
Pinto's Spinetail, Alagoas Foliage-gleaner, Orange-bellied
Antwren, the very local Buff-breasted Tody-Tyrant and the
spectacular Seven-colored Tanager.

This is another productive birding trip to Brazil for the
experienced Brazilian birder, desiring more excellent
Brazilian birding and more Brazilian endemics. One of our
experienced staff has done this trip 3 times, and he
continues to rave about the quality of birding at this
location. Most trips find 300 to 400 species in about 10
days.
