December, 2022

What a strong ending for 2022!!!
It took Boute Expeditions to drive his guest for about 3.000 Km ( About 1.800 miles) thru. the Brazilian Northeast, from the lovely city of Juazeiro do Norte, all the way to Salvador, Capital of the Brazilian State of Bahia, in search of some of the rarest birds of Brazil & the World, such endemic Araripe Manakin, Forbe´s Blackbird, Yellow-faced Siskin,  Lear´s Macaw,  Caating Antwren, Great Xenops, Fringe-backed Fire-eye, just to mention a few…
If, you have any desire to retrace the tracks of such great birding trip, don´t hesitate in contacting us…

November, 2022

November  is a month when the rain, starts to became more frequent… Well, this might be true for the past years.
Since, in 2022 there was very, very few rain. 
Which helped Boute Expeditions to offer a fantastic Amazon Rainforest Mammal & Birding Tour!  We went to two destinations:  The Gardens of the Amazon Lodge (, and, the newest destination for the Southern Amazon River Basin: The Cunhataí-Porã Ecological Reservation!
Our German guest had a wonderful time, in both places, with lots of birds: Blue-and-Yellow and Red-shouldered Macaws, Spangled Cotinga, Bare-necked Fruitcrow. Just to mention a few… And, mammals too: Tapir, Monkeys and Peccaries!
The Cunhataí-Porã Ecological Reservation is in the process of setting brand new accommodations, which shall be ready early in 2023.
Please, don´t hesitate in contacting us, for a Life Time Experience, at the Southern Amazon River Basin.
NOTE: It is a drive distance from the Airport of Cuiaba… Just about 150 miles.

October, 2022

October was the month we have the farwell  Jaguar Photo Safaris, at the Northern Pantanal…
Since, only – eventually – we do it, until mid November…After that, the rains and the mosquitoes can be a problem…
But, October also brought us to very nice surprises: 
1 –  The exploration/scouting trip to a new destination within the State  of Mato Grosso: The Ecological Reservation of  CUNHATAI PORÃ:
Which is also the home for the rarest bird of the Brazilian State of Mato Grosso: The enigmatic Cone-billed Tanager!!!
2- Taking part on a Travel Show, at New York City – USA, when Boute Expeditions set new partners & also met clients that will be taking some of our tours, in 2023!!!

September, 2022

We are pleased to share the hightlights of September.  Very few times, we had a month so productive!!!…
And, since a photo is worth a thousand words…
Below, there is a link,  for photos, from one of our many guests, that has  “gazzillions”  words that – surely – that will help to decide to plan a trip to Brazil, with a Jaguar Photo Safari, at the Pantanal!!! 🙂

August, 2022

Well, for those that just read the July Highlights, there is a big surprise: In August, we got up to 08(eight) Jaguars, all seen along a particular ox bowl lake, connected to the Cuiabá River… Surely, we made history…
The explanation for this “Jaguar Explosion” is that during the Pandemic, read: Two Years, in a row(!!!), we had Jaguar Photo Safaris, with less people…
So, the Jaguars that were born during that period of time, got used to the public, in a much faster & easier way…So, there is no fear from their side when approached by people… Making a long story short: Year after year, the Jaguar Photo Safaris, at the Pantanal just get better and better!!!
So, what are you waiting for? Let´s book a Jaguar Photo Safari, with Boute Expeditions! 🙂

July, 2022

What could be better than watching & photographing a  single Jaguar, at the Pantanal???
Well…What about 05 (Five) Jaguars, at the same time???
Believe or not, this is what happened during one of our many Jaguar Photo Safaris!!!
Pantanal = Jaguarland!!! 🙂
And, besides, this wonderful event, we also had the chance to watch & photograph, the interaction of a mother & its cubs, the cubs playing with each other and some killings!  This time the Jaguar was very lucky in getting a caiman!!!
Videos showing that & much more are available at our YouTube Channel:
Enjoy & Plan to Join us, in 2023 for this Life Time Experience, with the  Boute Expeditions Team.

June, 2022

On the previous Best Trip Highlights, for May, it was said that the Jaguar Photo Safari Season “had started”… Well, this time, we have to say that the Jaguar Photo Safari is in “full swing”!!!
The evidences are on these vídeos:
We also need to mention, that we had one of the longest Bird & Photo Tour ever! Covering the Amazon Forest (Including an active Harpy Eagle Nest), Cristalino Jungle  Logde, The Pantanal (Several lodges), Itatiaia National Park, Ubatuba Reserve and Iguassu Falls, lasting for more than a month!!!

May, 2022

The Jaguar Photo Safari Season has started…And, this May we runned a very sucessful Tour, that couldn´t have a better “warm up”, we started visiting a tower, that puts our guests on eye level to an active Harpy Eagle Nest!!!
During three days, we have both parents(!!!) and the Juvenal being feed with Armadillos and Monkeys ( See, photos below…), and on the same itinerary we covered Vila Bela da Santíssima Trindade, where, we have the Pink Dolphins, Hoatzins and lots of Roseate Sponbills, on a true Hollywood movie scenary(See, photos…), then, last but not least, we went to Porto Jofre for the King of the Forests: The Jaguar.  
The year of 2022 shall  be one of the best years ever for those going to the Pantanal for a Jaguar Photo Safari.
Reason:  There are  two Jaguar mothers with cubs!!! ( See, photos…)
One of the cubs is not shwon, yet, due the fact that it was jumping all the time!!! 😀

April, 2022

Since the Pandemic, is not representing any more a threat to travelling, in April, Boute Expeditions, took part of the Chiapas Birding & Photo Festival, in Mexico.It was a great opportunity for Paulo Boute to share his 40 years of experience leading birdwatching tours, in Brazil & South America, since he was one of the International speakers, at the such nice event. Also an opportunity to make new friends, partners and, of course, go out birding! 🙂
Many warblers were still in their way to United States & Canada, not to mention, the regular residents birds of Mexico such the Keel-billed Toucan!

What an astonishing bird!!!
In Brazil, Boute Expeditions, was taking part on a Day Birding at the:
Which became a Hot Spot for birds, in our itinerary for the South of Brazil & a chance to meet many other Brazilian Birders.

March, 2022

There is the music that says: “Oh, Happy Day…”…Well, in our case we had a “Harpy Day”!!! 🙂

This March, we took our first guest (of many more)  to watch and photograph an active Harpy Eagle Nest, just five hours drive from Cuiabá!!!  Next to the nest there is a tower on the same level as the nest. The (Lovely) Harpy Eagle chick is about two months old, which means the nest will be active for about one more year…

Combined with the nest, we also are taking our guests to Vila Bela. Read: The Hoatzin Paradise!
 And, not just that! Both River Dolphins are there!!!

 The Pink one and the Gray one…Being the Pink one much more easy to be photographed!!!

Don´t hesitate in booking, with Boute Expeditions,  this Life Time Photo Tour !!!
