Overview

Our extension to the incredible Iguazú Falls, the most voluminous and arguably most scenic falls in the world, offers fantastic Atlantic Rainforest birding and targets include Surucua Trogon, Blond-crested Woodpecker, Rufous-capped Motmot, Rufous Gnateater – and many more! Our itinerary also allows time to venture to higher-elevations birding sites in search of other regional specialties such as Black-fronted Piping Guan, Dusky-tailed  Antbird, Bertoni’s Antbird and Tufted Antshrike. We will also visit the Jardin de las Picaflores where a good set of spectacular hummingbirds come to the feeders. This is a highly enjoyable addition to our Brazil – Birds & Wildlife of the Pantanal & Cerrado birding tour!

I was really pleasantly surprised about every aspect of the Oman & UAE tour. Forrest Rowland did an outstanding job in every way and he has a great sense of humour. This tour exceeded my expectations. The pace was just right, accommodations and meals were of high quality, and Forrest did a great job of organizing details and making sure everything ran smoothly. He found the species that were sought and had expert knowledge of where the birds were likely to be found and when was the best time to try for them.

André, who escorted us on four drives, is a superb tracker with great knowledge of the reserve and its denizens. He is also an expert on the birdlife of southern Africa and was able to bring the bush to life for us with knowledge of all that we saw.

The ability of our guide, Rich Lindie, to locate the birds from the faintest movement or call under difficult and trying conditions was outstanding.

I am not a twitcher or even a knowledgeable birdwatcher, but I am always keen to see new things. Our ranger André had a huge knowledge of birds. He shared this and more about all the flora and fauna that we came across. He explained about insects and trees as we passed them and didn't fail to answer a question.

The game drives were fantastic, André’s knowledge and attention to detail could certainly be used as the benchmark for all lodges. We were often stopping to wipe away the tears of laughter and the times spent on the drives with André will certainly be remembered. Hats off to you André, you really made our trip!!!
