Brazil Off the Beaten Track: Pantanal, dunes and lagoons

15 days from £5,261pp

Price excludes international flights at the beginning and end of the trip

 

Private Journey

 

This holiday to the hard-to-reach highlights of Brazil combines two contrasting areas: the wildlife-rich wetlands and cattle ranches of the Pantanal in the centre of South America and the sparsely populated, surreal sandy landscapes of the far northeast.

Stay at a lodge deep inside the Pantanal where wildlife is prolific; safari-style excursions by land and river will take you close to a huge variety of creatures: alligators, giant storks, capybaras, anacondas, anteaters, macaws all thrive in harmony here.

In the remote far north of Brazil lies the huge Parnaíba delta. Its islets and lagoons are fabulous bird watching destinations. Beyond, are the surreal dunes and crystalline pools of Lençois Maranhenses National Park.  A traditional way of life survives in the region's sleepy, riverine fishing communities and small coastal towns. Even the popular beach hangout of Jericoacoara remains low-key. This is an adventurous trip taking you exploring by jeep, boat and 4WD.
