Brazil

The world’s fifth largest country, Brazil occupies nearly half of the South American continent and lives up to its booming promise and exotic reputation. Its wildly exuberant people and year-round subtropical climate make it one of the continent’s most exciting destinations.

From the magnificent Iguaçu Falls, Brazil stretches north across 7000kms of lush, tropical coastline dotted with brilliantly-painted colonial towns, chic fishing villages, eco resorts and, of course, Rio, one of the the most visually dramatic cities on earth.

Heading west, vast coffee, cocoa and sugarcane plantations give way to the Amazon Basin, the largest rainforest on the planet and the second longest river. To the south, the immense wetlands of the Pantanal are an ecological paradise inhabited by the greatest concentration of fauna in the Americas.

  • I cannot tell you what an amazing time we are having. Everything has been better and more fun than we could have imagined. We are at the moment in our own private estancia in the most incredible setting with not another guest in sight. How did you manage it?! We have been riding up to the top of hills and watching the gauchos herd and grade the cattle and all the while being given delicious food and drink. Your choice of restaurants throughout has been faultless. Not a duff one anywhere. Hero has been wonderful. Efficient and thorough and able to sort out everything we threw at her - a star. So, although we are thankfully not even half way through our adventure, I wanted to just let you know what an amazing holiday you have organised for us. Will be in touch again but have to go now as the gin and tonic is waiting!
