Hence, Rio de Janeiro is on many people’s bucket list. It was also named as one of the top 7 Natural Wonder of the World by CNN.

So what is in it for the birder? There is surprisingly good birding at the Botanical Garden, which will be visited one morning and in Tijuca National Park where Corcovado and the Christ statue is situated. So with local expertise we shall be able to enjoy to see all major Rio sights, but also a great number of birds.

Serious birders should look into the 3 day Rio de Janeiro State pretrip, which focus on some of the most local endmemic birds in South America. Ask us for details.

After Rio, we fly to another iconic place – the Iguazu Falls – situated on the border of Southern Brazil and Misiones of NE Argentina. A spectacular natural wonder, and while staying at very comfortable hotels, we shall also do some excellent birding here.

If you want to see the best mammals of the Amazon, don’t go to the Amazon. Go to the Pantanal in Brazil!

Hence, the best place to spot Jaguars, Giant Otter, Tapir, Giant Anteater, Capibaras, Howler Monkeys, Caimans, and even Maned Wolf and Ocelot sometimes. Additionally, it is home of big iconic birds such as Jabiru Stork, Toco Toucan, Agami Heron, Sunbittern, Sungrebe, Hoatzin and of course the gigantic vivid blue Hyacinth Macaw.
