Three Eco-Lodge tour Brazil - October 24 - November 3, 2011
Join Peter Llewellyn on the 2011 tour to the Amazonian Region, Brazilian Savannah and The Pantanal – a UNESCO World Heritage site.
A tropical wetland covering 195,000 square kilometres (75,000 square miles) in western Brazil, and Overflowing from Bolivia and Paraguay, the Pantanal is a vast ecosystem with a huge density of species: over 650 species of birds, 300 mammals, 480 reptiles, and 400 fish, as well as nurturing one of the world’s most biologically diverse collections of plants.
The rarest animals that inhabit the Pantanal wetland are the marsh deer and the giant river otter. Parts of the Pantanal are also home to the endangered hyacinth macaw, crowned solitary eagle, maned wolf, giant armadillo, capybara, Brazilian tapir, giant anteater and the Paraguayan caiman.
Peter has personally visited and selected the areas, accommodation (in comfortable eco-lodges) and seasons that offer the most ideal and abundant opportunities for nature and wildlife photography. He has also identified the best local guides that will accompany groups during the daily field trips, on foot, by boat or on horseback.
All tours will include photographic help as needed, image critique, and digital darkroom sessions.
