Optional extension to Iguaçu for two+ days of birding amidst the splendor of the world’s largest waterfalls. Many Atlantic Forest specialties, with minimal species overlap with the main Pantanal Safari.
The thunderous cataracts of Iguaçu, the world’s largest waterfalls, will be the backdrop for some great birding. We will explore lush forests in search of some of Brazil’s most spectacular birds, including Black-fronted Piping Guan; Pavonine Cuckoo; Robust and Blond-crested woodpeckers; Red-ruffed Fruitcrow; Spot-billed Toucanet; Toco and Red-breasted toucans; Surucua Trogon; Rufous-capped Motmot; Band-tailed Manakin; and Plush-crested Jay. We will also search for some of the rarer endemic passerines, such as Russet-winged Spadebill, São Paulo Tyrannulet, and Creamy-bellied Gnatcatcher.
Single-site extension, with excellent hotel situated directly opposite spectacular Iguaçu Falls; multiple overlooks of the falls within very short walk from hotel; excellent food; forest birding along level jeep track through beautiful bamboo-rich forest; internal flight to Iguaçu at the beginning and to São Paulo or Brasilia at the end; no long drives; easy terrain; full mornings in the field, with optional afternoon birding, sightseeing, or leisure.
