BRAZIL:  Wildlife of the Pantanal and Amazon Rainforest

With Hawks Aloft & Holbrook Travel

New Dates

November 1 – 10, 2021

Located in west-central Brazil, the Pantanal is the world’s largest freshwater wetland and one of the most biodiverse, productive habitats in the Western Hemisphere.  It harbors a world-record 82 species or large birds including Hyacinth Macaw, Jabiru, Toco Toucan, Greater Rhea, Scarlet Macaw as well as coatimundi, tapirs, and giant river otters.  Perhaps, however; no other animal is as beautiful and dramatic as the jaguar.  Embark on this exception adventure providing opportunities for close range observation of abundant wildlife and the majestic jaguar.

We will spend our final days of the trip in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon, immersed in the dense tropical forest that is home to the highest concentration of birds species, with over 1500 described species of rainforest birds.  It is home to the Harpy Eagle, Bare-faced Currasow, King Vulture, Hoatzin, Plum-throated Cotinga, Spectacled Owl and much more.  The Amazon is also home to about 430 species of mammal, with more still to be discovered. Among the monkey species that could be seen are: Howler, Spider, Capuchin, Tamarin, Squirrel, Woolly, Uakari, Titi, Marmosets, and Night Monkeys, also called owl monkeys.  Of course, aquatic life abounds in this habitat as well as the Pantanal.
