I have finally been able to put details together for this trip around Brazil.
After landing in Sao Paulo we fly to Campo Grande and then transfer to Buraco das Araras where a very large group of Green winged Macaws roost, nest and feed. Visiting their site 2 mornings and one evening. In between we will be able to snorkel in the Rio da Prata which is likened to swimming in an aquarium.
From here we go into the Pantanal for Hyacinth Macaws and another 15 species of parrot.
After the Pantanal we fly up to Forteleza where we have a driver and guide waiting to take us to see the endangered Gray breasted Parakeets (our guide is involved in their conservation so he knows where to find them) moving down into Bahia to see the Lears Macaws at their roost and feed sites before driving further South towards Salvador where we come across Golden capped Parakeets and Red browed Amazons.
We then fly from Salvador down to Rio de Janeiro where some of the group may decide to go home. However for the more adventurous there is the opportunity to go to a reserve called REGUA about 2 hours drive from Rio where we will be able to encounter Blue winged Macaws amongst many other parrots. From here we will be able to sample one of the local carnivals as well.
37 species of Parrots including 7 species of Macaw (Hyacinth, Lears, Blue and Yellow, Yellow collared, Blue winged, Red shouldered and Green winged Macaws) and in excess of 500 species of birds potentially on this trip not forgetting all the other wildlife that we may encounter.
I have allowed plenty of time at all the locations to be able to Photograph, Video or just observe these magnificent Parrots and other wildlife
