Brazil's Atlantic Forest: Spectacular South American Birding Tour Pricing

2019 Pricing: $ US Dollars, or £ GBP*

for 11 Days and 10 Nights




  • Tour package includes all lodging, meals* and access fees to reserves, parks and other birding sites. 

  • Premier Bird Guide: All of our tours use the services on an excellent bird guide, often a well-recognized expert on birding in this area. We often use Lelis Navarrete or Fito Downs.

  • Top-Rated Preparation Services: We support your preparation for the trip. We provide information on the birds you will see and all the travel details, including all logistic details (arrival plans, trip itinerary, lodging details and more), information on entry into Brazil and information on travel health issues, packing information and more. Most of our clients comment that our Trip Participation Guide is the best they have ever seen.

  • Transport and Airport Transfers: Local ground (by vehicle and often large transport van) transport as described in the trip itinerary.   

  • Acre for Bird Conservation:  As part of our efforts to support bird conservation, we purchase in the name of customers (for each booking) at least one acre (but averaging between three and four acres) of wilderness to support bird conservation. As our trip prices are often 20% (and often even a better deal) less than our competition, this does not really cost you more and it is a great way to support bird conservation around the world.

  • Small Group Pricing: All the prices mentioned above are for tour groups of six to eight participants. We are happy to provide pricing for private groups with fewer than six participants.


Important Note: 

  • Depending upon interest and group size, we can develop Amazon tour extensions in several other locations.

    • This trip can be very even more affordable for clients who go to Carajas. Carajas offers opportunities to go deep in the Amazon rainforest. Early morning starts are required, and days often start with drives of an hour into Carajas National Park. Birding is very comparable to Rio Cristalino, with some of our top guides preferring birding here.

    • Another location is accessing Amazon species via Manaus. The Manaus are itself adds several key species, and Amazon birding here can be comparable to other locations.


Possible Additions to Basic Trip Pricing:

  • With Lelis Navarrete as Lead Guide: Add $200 US Dollars (or £145 GBP*) to the basic trip price for the additional costs of using South America's top birding guide.                         


*Pricing Notes and More Details:


  • US Dollar Pricing: The US Dollar has been fairly strong against the Brazilian Real in the last few years. Most pricing for the trip has been in US Dollars with most lodges switching to US Dollar pricing in recent years. Thus, we use US Dollars as the currency for pricing this trip. 

  • Pricing in British Pounds: The GBP price indicated above is based on the April 9, 2018 exchange rate of 0.71 GBP per US Dollar. The trip price is fixed in US Dollars, and the final charges for the trip will be based upon the actual exchange rates we pay.

  • Bank Fees: Though we work to minimize bank charges with banking in Canada and in the United Kingdom, banks do often charge about 1.5% to for making the exchange.

  • Note on Meal Inclusion: Meals include three meals per day during any full day of the trip. The arrival day does include supper, as we arrive at the lodge in the afternoon. The departure day includes only breakfast, as most flights leave in the morning.

  • Note on Beverage Inclusion: Most of our meals are provided by the lodges, and we follow their practices in providing beverages at meal time. Breakfast usually includes coffee or tea and/or juice (as provided by the lodge), and box lunches include either bottled water or juice. Other beverages served at supper are your choice and are an additional expense which you pay to the restaurant directly. We provide water at the table for supper. We also provide bottled water during the birding day.

  • Group Size: We anticipate a group of 6 to 8 participants, and pricing is based upon this group size. We will offer a moderate and reasonable small group supplement for 3 to 5 participants. Even 2 participants can be accommodated fairly easily here.


Optional Costs for Booking the Trip:

Single Room Supplement: 
$ USD (or £ GBP*) is the price we charge for the additional cost of anyone not sharing a room with another birder (and/or a spouse). If you want a single room, please let us know. We are often able to find a roommate for those wanting to share a room.

Notes on Other Tour Costs: Exclusions:  

  • You will need to pay your international flight cost for getting from your local airport to Rio de Janeiro or Sao Paulo in Brazil. From either of these major cities you can fly to Cuiaba. We will figure out the least expensive internal flight plans for the group, and book the flights internal to Brazil. We do charge actual costs for flights. Booking flights in Brazil can be a bit of a fine art, generally budget about $150 to $200 (£95 to £130 GBP*) per leg of flight after arrival in one of the major cities (most clients fly into Rio de Janeiro or Sao Paulo). 

    • Assuming you start this tour in Cuiaba, you will need to purchase a round trip flight to Alta Floresta. The flight could be booked today at $172 USD (or about £125 GBP)*.

  • The tour fee does not include taxes/fees for entering or exiting the country, telephone calls, laundry and other items of a personal nature.

  • Tips for birding guides and trip drivers are not included in the tour price. You can choose to pre-pay trips to meal service and housekeeping staff.
