We’ll visit wonderful places such as Canastra National Park… …which protects savanna and gllery forests… …and shelters the Sao Francisco river spring… …home th the extremely endangered Braziliam Merganser… …but also the peaceful Caaraca Sanctuary. …and the isolated Cipo Mountain. Birding will be easy in semi-open habtats.. …and accommodation will vary from fancy in cities to simple but comfortable as hee in Canastra… …and we’ll even spend a few nights in the Canastra Monastery… …a special and beautiful place… …where for decades the monks have fed Maned Wolves every evening. Birding will be superb with exquisite birds such as Swallow-tailed Manakin… …the endemic Sera Antwren… …the charming Gray-backed Tachuri… …the secretive Collared Crescentchest… …the colorful Red-breasted Toucan… …and the stunning Streamer-tailed Tyrant to mention just a few. This may be the best tour in the world to see Giant Anteater… …as they are fairly common in Canastra Ntional Park. Free-range Maned Wolves are sometimes seen in the grasslands.,, …and at Canastra we could find the Brazilian endemic Black-fronted Titi. It’s a wonderful tour for botany with impressive plants all over such as <i>Paepalanthus speciosus</i> in Canastra …or <i>Paepalanthus bromelioides</i> in Cipo… …and it’s definitely a wonderful place to travel.
