Covent Garden goes nuts for Brazil

29th April 2010 Print

To celebrate the wonders of Brazil, Wildlife Worldwide and the Brazilian Tourist Board are hosting a special evening in London.

Go along and listen to Latin American based James Lowen, author of the recently published Bradt guide ‘Pantanal Wildlife’, and award-winning wildlife photographer Nick Garbutt as they engage you in experiences of the Pantanal and beyond.

Cats and water are not natural partners by all accounts but the Brazilian Pantanal holds a different story. As one of the world’s most spectacular wetland areas, covering an area of 150,000 sq kms, this vast haven reveals a bountiful array of wildlife ranging from the glistening azure plumage of hyacinth macaws to the stealthy and camouflaged caiman, the playful giant river otters to powerful anacondas. It is the majestic jaguar, though, which tops the bill as the regions most sought after sighting and nowhere is better at offering such a ‘cat in splash’ opportunity.

The team at Wildlife Worldwide is smitten with this South American wetland wonderland and offers travellers a huge choice of trips to suit all wildlife enthusiasts, ranging from small group to tailor-made and the unique opportunity to attend the Festival of Wildlife which will take place in the Pantanal in September of this year.

Where better to host a travel author event than Stanfords Book & Map store in Covent Garden? Enjoy Brazilian Caipirinha cocktails and nibbles with a possible smattering of Portuguese! Attendees will also be entitled to a 10% discount voucher from the store where they may choose to delve deeper into the specifics of Pantanal wildlife through the purchase of James’s Bradt Pantanal guide.

Event Date: Tuesday 11th May
Time: 7:30pm
Location: Stanfords Book & Map store, 12-14 Long Acre, Covent Garden, WC2E 9LP
