Brazil is a vast country with delightful golden beaches, vibrant cities, colonial baroque architecture, a fascinating history and a multitude of ethnic groups – and the world-famed Carnival. The landscape is as diverse as the people who live there: the lush vegetation and exotic wildlife of the rainforest and rivers of the Amazon with pink dolphins and more than 2,000 species of fish; the Pantanal wetlands, the largest in the world, with jaguar, ocelot and hyacinth macaw; and the thundering Iguaçu Falls, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A&K’s representative office in Brazil has been operating there for nearly 50 years. Guides are carefully selected to suit each guest, all with in-depth knowledge, pride and appreciation for their home country. Each itinerary is tailor-made: guests travel at their own pace with their own chosen companion, with their own guide and driver. And because hand-picked guides have such broad interests and experiences, A&K guests can follow their own passions or interests.
