Birding Brazil's Pantanal with the Audubon Society of Greater Denver: Birds and Wildlife with Jaguar Tour Pricing

2019 Pricing: $2,990 US Dollars

for 9 Days and 8 Nights

 

 

Inclusions: 

 

  • 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 Xavier Muñoz on these trips.

  • 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: 

         o Local ground transport is included. This includes a large transport van (and/or jeep as                           needed) for most of the trip.  
         o We also have a driver or guide pick you up at airport upon arrival, and transfers for internal                 flights are included, and we arrange for a transfer back to the airport at the end of the trip.  

  • Acre for Bird Conservation: We support bird conservation, saving several acres for bird conservation for every booking. For every tour participant, we provide support for bird conservation by the acre. Acres are sometimes purchased, but we often support conservation easements through a variety of reputable conservation partners, such as the Rainforest Trust and the World Land Trust. We have protected over 70,000 acres over the last three years.

  • 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.

 

 

*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. 

  • Bank Fees: We do not charge bank fees for wire transfers for clients paying into our accounts in the United States, the United Kingdom and/or Canada.

  • Note on Meal Inclusion: Meals include three meals per day during any full day of the trip. The arrival day does not include any meals, as most flights arrive after 7 PM. 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.     

 

Optional Costs for Booking the Trip:

Single Room Supplement: 
$280 USD 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 $70 to $100 per leg of flight after arrival in one of the major cities (most clients fly into Rio de Janeiro or Sao Paulo). 

  • 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.
