Bespoke Brazil Wildlife Holiday in the Pantanal with Amazon extension.
15 days from £4400*
Brazil Tour - For many wildlife enthusiasts a visit into the heart of the Amazon is a dream; which many of them have been trying to make happen for most of their lives. Proper planning is very important as the gateway city into the Amazon, Manaus, is now a huge, bustling city of 3 million inhabitants; so lodges located close to Manaus may not be the remote, wildlife rich paradise you were looking for. Wildlife Trails decided to head even deeper into the Amazon and take an internal flight to Tefe. From here you have a beautiful 1-2 hour boat journey which takes you to the beautifully situated Ukari Lodge. The lodge is run as a pioneering community project, with management and profits being equally shared between a private company and a nearby village. In addition all the guides and much of the local food is supplied by the village. These sort of projects have to be supported all around the world to ensure local communities benefit from wildlife tourism.
