Days 4-5: to the pantanal

Enjoy breakfast and head to the Pantanal! (approximately 4 hour drive) The Pantanal area of Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul States is the largest continuous wetland in the world. It has an area of 140,000 square kilometers of floodplain in Brazil, and it also spreads through Paraguay, Bolivia and Argentina. It was formed between two and five million years ago as a large sedimentary basin, and now it’s an isolated flatland surrounded by several mountainous areas. It is considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Pantanal has diverse aquatic animal life; hundreds of different fish guarantee a rich bird population (more than 600 species live in the area). There is also a huge population of reptiles and mammals such as: caimans, capybaras, monkeys, jaguars, armadillos, coatis and anteaters. The Pantanal has four dramatically different seasons: the flood season (January to March); the post-rain season, known as “Vazante,” when the water level recedes (April to June); the dry season (July to October); and the early rainy season, known as "Enchente," when the water levels begin rising (November to December).

Arrive at Araras Lodge in time for lunch. Araras Eco Lodge offers a homely atmosphere so you'll feel right at home during your stay. Enjoy a little down time before heading out on an introductory walking tour. You'll learn about the surroundings and environment. Activites for the next day could include hiking, horseback riding, canoeing, sunrise walk, and jeep touring.

For your final two days in Brazil, you'll get to know Rio de Janeiro (or "River of January"), a huge seaside city famed for its Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, the 125-foot Christ the Redeemer statue atop Mount Corcovado, and Sugarloaf Mountain, a granite peak with cable cars to its summit. The city is also known for its sprawling favelas (shanty towns). 

Activities over the next two days include:

  • Experience the Morrinho Project, a visit to an expansive model of a favela that engages visitors in activities that develop deeper comprehension of favela life. Located near Pereira da Silva favela in the Southern Zone of Rio de Janeiro, the project aims to show that favela life is multi-dimensional, and communicates this message through film, plastic arts, theater, and music. (Getting to the project including walking up and down several steps, sometimes on uneven ground. Note that the tour is only available Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.)
     
  • Explore the Botanical Garden, one of the greatest tropical gardens in the world. It houses some of the rarest species of plants from the flora of Brazil and other countries, and many species of tropical birds, fish and mammals. The garden is located at the foot of Corcovado Mountain and occupies about 350 acres. It is part of the Floresta da Tijuca, home to hundreds of species of plants and wildlife endemic to the Atlantic Rainforest.

On the second day in Rio, after a full day seeing the sights, conclude the day with a farewell dinner.
