Best of Brazil

Overview

Brazil is vast and diverse country with so much to explore. In this holiday we have hand picked the top highlights to give you a flavour of the country’s incredible diversity.
The holiday starts at Iguazu Falls, which can be accessed from numerous hubs across Latin America. With tours of both the Brazilian and Argentina sides of the falls, you will have the opportunities to see these awesome falls from every possible angle. Continue to the famous and unmissable Rio de Janeiro with its iconic skyline and beaches of beautiful people. After a few days enjoying all Rio has to offer, fly up to the vibrant Salvador de Bahia with its unique African culture. Spend a few days exploring the cobbled streets and taking in the music and street performances. Your final stop is the incredible Pantanal wetlands, brimming with wildlife. You will stay at a lodge, where expert guides will help you get the very best from this wildlife hotspot.

Sustainability

Chimu Adventures undertakes a number of sustainability measures within its operations including:

1) Only using local guides and office staff to both maximise local employment opportunities and minimise carbon footprints. Local guides also ensure you benefit from the intimate knowledge, passion and culture of the country you’re visiting.

2) Where possible, using locally owned and operated boutique hotels to maximise the return to the local community.

3) Chimu’s “Pass it on” programme has provided funding to hundreds of local community projects in Latin America. Our aim is to empower local communities, helping them to develop their own infrastructure for the future. Since 2006, we have been working with Kiva (a well-known Non-Governmental Organisation), providing hundreds of loans to local businesses all over South America.
4) In our pre tour information we provide a range of tips and advice on how to minimise your impact on both local environments and communities.

5) Chimu Adventures’ offices also take a number of sustainability measures including carbon offsets for company vehicles and most staff travel. Chimu Adventure’s internal processes are also structures to create a paperless office and to reduce waste. There are also internal programmes to help staff minimise their carbon footprint such as our staff bike purchase assistance plan which encourages office staff to commute to work via bicycle. Currently almost half of our office based staff commute to work via bicycle.
