David and Linda had a fantastic holiday to Brazil in September 2017. The highlights included staying in a lodge in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest, searching for jaguars in the Pantanal and then four nights relaxing at the Iguassu Falls.

A family-run lodge in the heart of the southern Pantanal, Barra Mansa is one of the more difficult lodges to reach in the Pantanal but for that reason it is one of the most rewarding.
Robert and Andrew travelled with us to Brazil to see the highlights of what South America can provide. Starting off with the mighty Iguassu falls and the variety of bird life, they then headed into the Pantanal for jaguars, and finally into the Amazon for giant otters and anteaters. Robert was kind enough to share a few of his photos with us!
