Brazil Private Tour

Local Time

Why You Should Go

Lined with white sandy beaches, dotted with tropical rainforests, and punctuated with bustling metropolises, Brazil has a little bit of something for everyone. A trip to the Pantanal is marked by one-of-a-kind wildlife experience filled with jaguars (which you may even spot right from your bedroom window!), capybaras, giant otters, and jabirus to name a few. When your safari experience is over, you’ll be whisked away to the city of Rio de Janeiro. When not lounging on the scenic beaches, you’ll have the chance to explore the culture of this active city, including paying a visit to the ‘New Seven Wonder of the World’, the famous Christ the Redeemer statue.
