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.

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.

Andre, our guide, has such an infectious nature, which had a huge positive effect on our stay. His incredible knowledge of birds was indeed humbling. A birder's paradise and a guide passionate about birds and nature - what more could one ask for?

David Hoddinott was an excellent leader. It was obvious he had devoted a lot of preparation time studying the birds and learning their vocalizations. I was very impressed with his knowledge. I’d love to go on another tour with him some day.

Dennis Yong was certainly knowledgeable on his birds and all other wildlife. I have to hand it to him, he has YEARS of experience and it shows.

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.
