Jaguar on the water's edge, Brazil


Brazil is more than just Rio: discover mountainous plateaux, Amazonian scenery and apex predators

Adventure Holidays in Brazil

Brazil is a country of powerful contrasts, from its world-famous carnival and colourful clash of cultures to its awe-inspiring jungles, slinky jaguars and perhaps the most dramatic waterfalls in the world. Adventure travel in Brazil is invariably focused on Rio, but the great falls of Iguazu, the Pantanal Wetlands, and the mighty Amazon River are really where its at…

There’s wonderful wildlife to watch in the wetlands; mountains to conquer around Sertão; and then there’s the Amazon. Roughly the size of Western Europe, it’s vast. Here you can sleep in a rainforest lodge, or float down in on a classic double-decked wooden Amazon riverboat looking our for pink dolphins as you go. Or cycle along the Costa Verde, stopping every now and then for a well-earned caipirinha on the beach.

In focus: Jaguar spotting in Pantanal

Wild and remote, the Pantanal extends from the Amazon and is the world’s largest tropical wetland, straddling the borders of Brazil, Paraguay and Bolivia. Its plains and low scrubby forests are home to over 1000 species of bird and 300 different mammals, including tapirs, anteaters, Jabiru storks, the striking Hyacinth macaw and – of course – the jaguar.

The largest and most elusive feline in the Americas – and the third-biggest cat in the world after tigers and lions – are notoriously tricky to spot on the wild. But since Exodus has been running tours to the northern Pantanal, our groups have had 100% success rate in spotting these amazing cats. They are solitary predators, formidable opponents on land, and strong swimmers known to frequent the waterways we will explore, and we divide our time between between a house boat and a lodge, journeying deep into the Pantanal.
