All year round destination. The climate is hot and humid throughout the whole year. Between June and November, it rains less (although it is a tropical rainforest and therefore can rain at any time) and it is hotter. From December to May the rainfall is more intense and the water levels increase and large marshlands form both in the archipelago and on the mainland. The flooded land reaches the highest levels between March and April and the lowest between August and October. When the land is flooded, more areas can be accessed by boat however during the 'drier' season beaches are formed along the archipelago and there is more chance to see wildlife such as caiman and capybaras on the river banks.

Itinerary

Fly to Sao Paulo
Day 1-2

Sao Paulo

The Emiliano, a member of the ‘Leading Small Hotel’s of the World’, is located in the heart of the fashionable district of Jardins, Sao Paulo’s Knightsbridge, close to world-renowned shops, galleries and boutiques.

Accommodation: Emiliano Sao Paulo ( 1 night )
Day 2-5

Alta Floresta, Brazil

The following morning you will be picked up from your hotel and taken to the airport for your flight to Alta Floresta. Once landed you will be met by your guide and taken to the wonderful Cristalino Lodge for the next three nights. The Lodge is a magical wildlife destination and conservation project nestled in a pristine private reserve in the Southern Brazilian Amazon rainforest state of Mato Grosso, and is only accessible by boat. The luxurious lodge offers elegant and comfortable accommodation with spacious solar-powered wooden bungalows.  Make sure you have your binoculars ready and camera in focus, it is the perfect base for extraordinary wildlife encounters.

The half-day tours take place each morning and afternoon. The activities include canoeing, hiking trails, birdwatching, photography tours, visits to the observation towers, fauna & flora observation and boat trips, all accompanied by the hotel’s specialised local guides to ensure that you get the best out of your experience.

Wildlife is in abundance here, the surrounding reserve is home to an astonishing 580 species of bird, along with an array of butterfly, monkeys, capybara, anteaters and river otters. You’ll need your walking boots to make the most of the extensive network of trails (with distances tailored to you), boats trips will take you to remote spots deep within the jungle and kayaks offer you the chance to explore narrow river channels whilst observing wildlife in complete silence. Clamber up the 50-metre canopy towers, strategically positioned at unique locations within the jungle, to observe wildlife residing at different levels of the canopy and enjoy spectacular sunsets and sunrises over the treetops. After your busy days exploring the rainforest, relax on the floating dock where you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the jungle whilst sipping on a refreshing fruity cocktail.

When you’re not out exploring the rainforest make the most of the lodge’s excellent facilities and relax in the evenings with a delicious range of local meals to share under the sparking night sky.

Accommodation: Cristalino Jungle Lodge ( 3 nights )
Day 5-6

Brazil

Check out of the hotel, and transfer to the airport for your flight to Brasília. Here you will be staying at the chic B Hotel, located in the heart of this architecturally rich city. Spend the day at leisure exploring the area, ready for your onward journey to the great plains of Brazil’s savannah the following day.

Accommodation: B Hotel Brasilia ( 1 night )
Day 6-9

Brazil

Today you will be transferred from the hotel and driven to Pousada Trijunção, for your next dose of exhilarating experiences in the wilds of Brasilia, discovering a whole host of native wildlife. Pousada Trijunção Eco Lodge is set in an oasis of 33,000 hectares of Brazil's great savannah, the Cerrado. Take time to settle in and refresh after your trip and enjoy some of the beautiful facilities before a delicious evening meal. The star event at the lodge is the surrounding vista, with breathtaking views of mountains, plateaus, rivers and vegetation.

Rise and shine ready for your first day of activities at the lodge. Pousada offers each guest two activities during the day, either in the morning of afternoon and one nocturnal activity. You can choose from the following key highlights that are included in your stay. Guided 4x4 safari, birdwatching, maned wolf spotting, kayaking, biking, hiking, night search for the dwarf caiman, external visits to a tortoise nursery, breeding grounds and a visit to the Grande Sertão Vereda National Park.
Accommodation: Pousada Trijunção ( 3 nights )
Day 9-10

Brazil

You will be picked up from the lodge and transferred back to B Hotel for the night before moving on to your next leg of the journey.

Accommodation: B Hotel Brasilia ( 1 night )
Day 10-14

Pantanal

Your epic adventure continues as you journey to the spectacular wetlands of the Brazilian Pantanal. Even more biodiverse than the Amazon, it's an absolute must for curious travellers wanting to get off the beaten track and spot more wildlife. You'll be staying at one of our favourite lodges and days will be spent on fantastic jeep safaris in search of the elusive jaguar, horseback rides across the savannah as well as boat tours and good old-fashioned hikes. Home to 53,000 hectares, the ranch is located in the heart of the southern Pantanal region, hosting one of the greatest concentrations of wildlife in the Americas.

Resident naturalist guides will accompany you on fascinating excursions in specially adapted vehicles, on foot and by canoe. During your stay you will be able to enjoy two activities during the day and one nocturnal. Activities include: walking trails in the woods, ranch tours, 4x4 photographic safari, Canadian canoe trip, nocturnal spotlighting and a Jaguar lecture. Also, the sunsets here are magical, the waters across the vast floodplains reflect the vibrant red and orange hues, so have your camera ready!

On your second day here you will get the chance to spend the day and evening with the Jaguar Habituation Team. Although nothing is guaranteed, this is without doubt the best chance you’ll have anywhere in South America to observe a jaguar in its natural habitat.

Accommodation: Caiman Ecological Refuge ( 4 nights )
Day 14-15

Rio de Janeiro

Your trip will conclude in Rio de Janeiro, with its instantly recognisable landmarks, where you’ll be staying on one of the world’s most famous beaches – Copacabana! Rio is a fantastic city with a lively atmosphere, plenty to see and do and miles of sun-drenched coastline to enjoy. Head up to one of Rio’s vantage points for an incredible bird’s eye view of the sweeping bay and to catch a glimpse of the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue. Do as the locals do and potter along the beach boulevard stopping for an ice-cold drink and some bar snacks whilst the skilful kids play football in the sand and surfers ride the rolling waves, or just lounge poolside with your holiday read, soaking in the last of that famous Brazilian sunshine, before your onward journey home.

Accommodation: Copacabana Palace, A Belmond Hotel ( 1 night )
