Brazil is home to the world's largest rainforest, widest waterfall and biggest wetlands, bursting with an extraordinary array of exotic animals and birds.
There are few better places to explore the natural world than in Brazil, home to the world's largest rainforest, widest waterfall and biggest wetlands. An extraordinary collection of exotic animals and birds make their homes in Brazil, offering the perfect combination of stunning landscapes and outstanding wildlife activity.
Western Brazil is part of the vast Amazon basin which covers more than one third of the country and is home to an unimaginable variety plants and animals. The Amazon is the planet's largest and most diverse tropical rainforest, covering an area equivalent to Western Europe. Here one can lose themselves in pristine rainforest, staying in small character lodges or river cruising along mighty Amazonian river. The colonial city of Manaus provides access to the isolated region and is known as "The Heart of the Amazon".
Iguassu Falls is one of South America's most extraordinary sights. Watch as vast torrents of water thunder over a horseshoe-shaped natural fault where more than two-hundred and fifty separate cascaded create an awe-inspiring spectacle. The falls lie between Brazil and Argentina, and while the panorama from Brazil is arguably better the Argentinian side allows you to get closer to the action. However to get the full experience of the falls you have to explore both sides.
The Pantanal wetlands are home to an extraordinary variety of wildlife and is a paradise for birdwatchers and nature lovers. Each year the landscape of this watery wonderland is transformed when water level rise to cover the lowland savannah and dense forest to create vast areas of shallow lagoons which provide vast open expanses and offer fantastic opportunities to watch the magnificent array of wildlife.
Aside from the big three, lesser known (but equally as noteworthy) areas of natural beauty include the magical 'desert' landscapes of Lencois do Maranhao and the table-top mountains of Chapada Diamantina, both are easily accessed from the large cities of Sao Luis and Salvador respectively.
