Iguassu Falls

More than twice as large as Niagara Falls and truly one of the most spectacular sites that nature has to offer, the magnificent Iguassu Falls not only divide the powerful Iguazu River, but they also separate Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay borders. Comprising 275 separate falls that stretch for more than one and a half miles, many of which are over 200 feet in height, it affords visitors breathtaking panoramic views, particularly from the Brazil side. It is sometimes said ‘from the Brazilian side you see the falls, and from the Argentinean side you live them’ and we couldn’t agree more. The Brazilian side also has the pick of the hotels with the renovated and Orient Express owned hotel Das Cataratas - just a stone's throw from falls. It is also possible to find very good accommodation on the Argentinean side, which hosts hotel Sheraton Iguazu, also inside the Argentinean national park, and some charming boutique hotels.

There are hundreds of animal species unique to the area, including 698 bird species, 80 mammals, 260 fish species and 50 reptiles. The Pantanal is home to many exotic and endangered species and including hyacinth macaws, toucans, tapir, giant anteaters, giant otters, the maned wolf, jaguar and capybara.

We can tailor-make such private safaris to your wishes, from bird watching to Jaguar tracking, all with expert guidance. When to go? This will depend on what you are looking to spot. However, it's generally best during the dry season (July-September) or the transition seasons (March-June and September-November).

Former capital of Brazil and the spiritual home of much of its traditional culture, there's a great deal to pack into a couple of days in Salvador. You can spend your time wandering the pretty streets of the old colonial neighbourhood, watching the impromptu displays of capoeira (the slave's athletic fight/dance) or attending Candomble rituals (an African religion that has deep roots in Salvador). Some of our preferred hotels are located in the charming colonial old town of Pelourinho making exploration of this (the best part of the city) much easier.

General security

Brazil, especially Rio, has had a bad reputation for personal security and many potential visitors have been put off travelling there. Much of this reputation can be put down to wild exaggeration, but it has had the beneficial effect of spurring the various city authorities into doing something about it. There are now far more tourist police, who are a great deal more helpful to visitors, and there is much better patrolling of problem areas. Although there is far more being done to improve security, an awareness of the following will lessen the risk to you and your belongings:
