This was our 3rd trip to Brazil and Boute Expeditions have helped us on all 3 of them. They have been very good to work with and have given us many good recommendations to make our trips just how we want them. Their customer service is excellent.
On this trip I left my fanny pack in a shuttle van and Paulo went out of his way to get it back and then got it returned to me very quickly. Without his help I doubt I ever would have seen it again! My cell phone was in the pack and it would have been both costly and extremely inconvenient if it had not been retrieved.
Paulo and Marluce are always very helpful, efficient and friendly to deal with. We hope to make more trips to Brazil in the future and will definitely use Boute Expeditions every time.
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!!!
Moments that shall be never forgotten!!!
In time: Our next departure is scheduled for early, 2022.
