Brazil Amazon Basin 8 Day

The 6950 square mile Serra dos Carajás National Park holds some of the richest avifauna of Brazil and South America, with a bird list of over 575 species and growing, including many rare and little known species. This makes Carajás one of the prime birding destinations in South America.

During our six days of birding, we will be looking for nearly twenty endemics and another thirty bird species difficult to find in other parts of South America. In the process of crossing a mix of habitats across a variety of trails and roads, we should find a good number of species new to most South American birders.

Serra dos Carajás National Park was created by the mining industry to protect prime Amazon rain forest habitat as an offset to the work they are doing nearby. 


The roads in the area, which have unfortunately cut through parts of the forest, make for excellent access to these forested areas for birding. The trails created throughout the National Park are also excellent for 
birding most of the day.
