Know Before You Go
This expedition’s primary objective is wildlife viewing. Although the tour is not overly strenuous, you should be reasonably fit and capable of moderate exercise while searching for wildlife. On several occasions there will be jungle hikes that will entail walking, unaided, along rugged trails with occasional inclines. Participants should also be aware that several days of our itinerary require lengthy journeys along rough roads to reach the areas that are diverse and rich in wildlife. Be prepared to spend several hours seated in small boats while searching for wildlife. For travelers who delight in natural history, possess a sense of humor, flexibility, and a true spirit of adventure, your expedition to Brazil will be remembered for many years to come. Temperatures will be high, with most days reaching the low 90s°F, though high humidity can make it feel warmer.
