Brazil - Atlantic Rainforest October 2020

I will be visiting the Pantanal in Brazil in September 2020 with family and have been planning a birding extension in the Atlantic Rainforest around Rio and Sao Paulo on the way back - early to mid-October.

Planned itinerary as follows

Areas Birding Sites

1 Arrive Sao Paulo - Guarau Coastline
2 Intervales Access Road
3 Intervales Carmo Road
4 Intervales Lajeado Track
5 Intervales Carmo Road
6 Trilha dos Tucanos Lodge trails
7 Trilha dos Tucanos Lodge trails
8 Campos de Jordao Horto Florestal-Pedro do Bau
9 Campos de Jordao Estrada de Romario
10 Ubabtuba Fazenda Angelim - Cambuca Birding
Centre - Pousada Oikos
11 Ubabtuba - Pereque Folha Seca - Mr Jonas - Capricornio
Farm - Pereque
12 Itatiaia - Agulhas Negras Agulhas Negras Rd
13 Itatiaia Tres Picos Trail
14 Itatiaia - Regua Parte Baixa
15 Regua Brown/Yellow Trail
16 Regua Green Trail
17 Regua Waldonor/Yellow Trail
18 Regua/Itotoro Wetlands/Cedae Trail
19 Itotoro Pico de Caledonia
20 Itotoro Macae de Cima
21 Itotoro Sumidouro/Duas Barras
22 Itotoro to Rio Lodge grounds/Depart

The REGUA/Itotoro portion would be full-board, guided by Andy Foster owner of Itotoro Lodge. The plan is to self-drive a small van/4x4 taking a local guide (I am in discussion with a number of local guides) with us as far as Itatiaia and then using our vehicle plus Andy at REGUA/Itotoro. I would be happy to drive but I would want others to share the driving.

Prices are likely to work out in the region of $4500-5000 for 22 days all-in if we can get a group of 4.

Please PM if you are interested and want to discuss in more detail.

Thanks

Paul,

Just a shout out for for Regua really, a great little reserve as are Caledonia and Macae de Cima. I also spend a bit of time with Andy Foster when I worked there last year. A very pleasant, friendly young man, knows the reserve inside out and very good birder. You will be in good hands there.
