Best Trip Hightlights, 2021




Tuco-Tuco sounds strange but, please, don´t blame yourself if, you never heard about it…Tuco-tuco is a rodent that lives underground, rarely seen or photographed…At the end of June, we had a guest, from USA,  that came to Brazil for a Mammal Tour, and, the Tuco-tuco, was one of his targets. Where he saw and photographed it? The answer is:  Reserva Biológica Alagado do Pacheco, located at the County of Viamão, at the Greater Porto Alegre, which is the Capital of the Brazilian State of Rio Grande do Sul. It was not an easy task: It was cold, windy & overcast…But, we made it! Congratulations & Thanks to Everyone that helped on this task, from the board of the directors of this important reserve,and, the local guide: Adilson.
More details at:
This very sucessful Mammal Tour, shows that Boute Expeditions with its expert guides, can provide great tours, at any part of Brazil, besides our traditional Birdwatching & Natural History Tours and Jaguar Photo Safaris.

Please, don´t blame yourself if, you are surprised with those headlines… But, yes. It is possible. We had been doing trips, since past December and March, see the respective trip reports,on this page…
During  part of May and mostly June, we had an one entire month Birding Tour(!!!).
Which covered the following Brazilian States:  São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Espírito Santo, Minas Gerais, Paraná, Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul.  Read: Tons of Birds!!! 
Among them some of the rare of the rarest such the: Blue-eyed Ground-Dove, with just about 20 (Twenty) individuals left in the wild & NONE, in captivity…
Our recent client was 78 years old and fully vaccinated, having no problem, at all.
So, if you are also fully vaccinated, why not to start to plan you Life Time Birding or Photo Tour to Brazil?
We will be glad to help you as much as we can!

What a Fantastic Birding Trip!!!

This February/March Boute Expeditions had a Superb Birding Trip thru. the Brazilian Northeast!

We started at the lovely Birding Lodge called “Pau Preto”.
Where we had among other birds, we watched the White-browed Antpitta, Caatinga Antwren, and, this cute White -naped Xenopsaris. Video:

From there, we also had the “every birding trip “must”  to the Brazilian Northeast Birding Trip”: The Araripe Manakin. Video:

After that, we went to the Canudos Biological Reserve, the home of the – Once thought to be extinct – The Lear´s Macaw! Video:

There, we had many other birds, including the Endemic Scarlet-throated Tanager.

The next stop was the Chapada Diamantina National Park. The Sincora Antwren didn´t disappoint us, as you can see, on this video:

We combined two stops at Chapada Diamantina National Park: Lençois and Mucugê. Where the Diamantina Tapaculo offered us a perfect “private perfomance”. Video:

From there, we went to our final stop: Aruá Birding Lodge, where besides the rare of the rarest birds, such the Fringe-backed Fire-eye, we also had two encounters of rare of the rarest mammals: The Collared Sloth. Best: We found a mother holding its young baby, on its chest!!!
