four Views of Brazil

You know Sugarloaf Mountain and the Amazon, now discover these Brazilian wonders

Four Views of Brazil is a feature from Issue 9 of Charitable Traveller. Click to read more from this issue.

The Patanal

The world’s largest tropical wetlands, the Pantanal stretches over 42 million acres and into neighbouring Bolivia and Paraguay. It’s a mix of dry savannah, tangled forest and meandering rivers which flood into lily-paved pools, alongside cattle ranches farmed by cowboys, or peãos, on horseback. Fascinating residents of this unique habitat include some 10 million caimans, the world’s highest density of jaguars, the biggest parrot on the planet (the hyacinth macaw), anacondas capybaras (large relatives of the guinea pigs), the pig-like long-snouted tapir and giant anteaters.

Lencois Maranhenses

Undulating, pristine white sand dunes (the name means ‘bedsheets’ in Portuguese) interspersed with bright blue lakes make this park a surreal spectacle. Located in Brazil’s north-east the national park the dunes edge the wild Atlantic coast. The best time to visit is May to August, after the rainy season when the lagoons are generously filled with royal blue fresh water perfect for a cooling swim. You can explore the dunes, lagoons and mangroves on a 4WD tour or on foot.

Fernando de Noronha

This Atlantic archipelago is around 220 miles off the coast of Brazil and home to just 5,000 people along with a diverse collection of birds, reptiles and marine life including dolphins, rays, sharks, and turtles. Characterised by its dramatic black volcanic rocks, banana-hued beaches, turquoise seas and lush vegetation, the island is a UNESCO World Heritage site and something of an exclusive retreat where you’ll be charged an eco-tax for the sublime privilege of visiting.

Chapada Diamantina

Boasting a cinematic landscape of table mountains bursting out of forested lowlands, vast inland region and national park is the perfect destination for hikers. As well as exploring the various trails and spotting cactuses, orchids and hummingbirds, you’ll find spectacular grottoes, waterfalls and iridescent lagoons. Poco Encantado is a subterranean pool hugged by limestone walls which turns to a dramatic azure when the sunlight filters in.
