Family Brazil: Wildlife adventures for pioneers

15 days from £4,585pp
 

Private Journey

 
If you are outdoor and nature enthusiasts, this private family adventure will delight every member of the family. There’s a stay in Rio de Janeiro, one of the most exotic and lively cities in the world, with its mountains and jungle right in the heart of the city. Even the ways you get around are exhilarating: cycle along the beaches, whizz up the Sugar Loaf in a cable car and climb Corcovado mountain in an open-topped jeep.

But before that, you’ll all thrill to the power of the Iguazú Falls, which crash over cliffs through tropical jungle filled with toucans and monkeys: but you won’t just look, you’ll explore close up by boat and on foot, and get wet. On safari in the wilderness wetlands of the Pantanal you’ll be punch-drunk on the volume of wildlife on display from giant guinea pigs and lofty storks to basking alligators.

The holiday ends with a few days down the Emerald Coast from Rio where you’ll be based in a private villa. You can be self-contained, cooking your own meals, swimming, kayaking and hanging out in hammocks, or venture into the colonial port of Paratí with its huge choice of restaurants.

What our experts say

With over 7,000 kilometres of coastline, Brazil offers some of the most breathtaking beaches in all of South America, if not the world. We regularly travel to Rio with our son and daughter to visit our family and there’s no doubt that our number one beach has to be Lopes Mendes on the island of Ilha Grande. Arriving on this beach by boat is like arriving on a deserted island 50 years ago; there is nothing there - no hotels, no bars, no restaurants just beautiful powdery white sands, clear azure sea and a backdrop of mountainous jungle.
