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!

2023 Tour price is an estimate and will change. Tour dates could be adjusted.

Tour Route Map Route Map Client Testimonials

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!!!

André in particular went out of his way to make sure our stay was as wonderful as it could be. Andre is also a great guide, with the ability to spot just about everything that moves, even if the movement is only breathing.

Adam Walleyn did a fantastic job organising the rest of the tour when Erik had to leave due to illness. I really appreciated his hard work and determination; for example: even though he had never been to Samoa before, his logistical work enabled us to get great views of some very difficult and unexpected species (Samoan Triller, Blue-grey Noddy).

Expert guiding by Keith and Glen Valentine, aided by fabulous local talent, ensured we saw the maximum number of endemics and other birds and mammals. Perhaps more importantly, these two brothers enjoyed their time together and provided a warm, friendly and caring environment in which we all had a good time with lots of laughs, and looked out for each other to ensure everyone got on the birds and did not falter on a tough hike or challenging car ride.
