Festival of Wildlife heads for Brazil
Wildlife Worldwide’s seventh annual 'Festival of Wildlife' trip will take place in the Pantanal, Brazil from 10-18 September 2010.
The trip will be accompanied by some of the UK’s leading wildlife experts including BBC TV’s ‘Last Chance to See’ presenter Mark Carwardine, award-winning wildlife photographers Nick Garbutt & Suzi Eszterhas, wildlife artist and sculptor Nick Mackman and Sophie Stafford, Editor of BBC Wildlife magazine.
The Festivals also help to raise money for local communities and eco projects and so far over £80,000 has been donated.
The Pantanal is one of the World’s largest wetland areas and home to a thousand species of bird, 400 species of fish (including the infamous Piranha), 300 species of mammal and 480 species of reptile.
This is a unique chance to join the experts in search of the elusive Jaguar and the endangered hyacinth macaw as well as other plentiful wildlife including caiman, capybaras and giant anteaters.
Accommodation is at magnificent wildlife lodges, with daily excursions and workshops with the experts.
The trip costs from £4150 pp (two sharing) which includes flights, all transportation, five nights’ full-board, all activities and the services of experts/guides.
Post trip extension options include Rio de Janeiro and Iguassu Falls.
