1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Our recent adventure to Brazil literally took our breath away. We could not believe the variety of mammals, birds and reptiles we had close encounters with. I can’t even begin to agree on a single highlight, there were so many; seeing four jaguars (including cubs) in one spot, unexpected encounters with a puma and an ocelot and spending an hour watching a tapir mooch about our lodge grounds. the operators were also fab in helping Theresa with her photography skills and accommodating our request to see a sloth The trip was very well organised and everything ran very smoothly on the ground. Our guides were fabulous, especially Tito! We’ve been on similar private tours with ‘luxury’ agents that have turned into an absolute farce and this could not have been further from those experiences. Besides the SPECTACULAR wildlife we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Rio, with its picture postcard landscapes, unique street art and fabulous food. This holiday was worth every penny and more. If you are contemplating whether its right for you, sit back, have a Caipirinha and get it booked. You won’t regret it!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Take lots of insect repellant! Please note our itinerary was altered to remove the waterfalls and add the Amazon but 98% of the wildlife we saw was in the Pantanal.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Definitely! It really help promote conservation and we could see the employment benefits for local people.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

SPECTACULAR

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Having so many decent sightings of jaguars not just fleeting glimpses so taking good photos of them was easy.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Go to the end of the transpanitaria to Porte Jofre this seemed the best place for jaguar spotting and for giant otters. Although we saw a couple of jaguars at Rio Claro I think we were extremely lucky as sightings here are not as common even our guide was surprised & pleased.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes as it used local guides, drives & independant accomodations hopefully the money brought in by tourists will help with conservation.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent especially the Pantanal. Only dissapointment was the day we visited Sugar loaf mountain & Corcovado as it rained and visibility was zero, not the tour companies fault but would have been better if they were more flexible with the itinerary enabeling it to be swapped with another day we were in Rio.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The wildlife viewing is wonderful. The highlight is definitely seeing the jaguars on the riverbanks in the Pantanal from about 20m.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Take a good camera, insect repellent and knock down spray. Expect to pay for drinking water.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes - jaguar viewing in the Panatanal is relatively new and helps contribute to wildlife conservation in this area. Similarly, Iguazu Falls has a large conservation area which benefits from the visitors to the Falls on both sides of the border.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent!
