Brazil Bird Watching and Wildlife Tours
Serra dos Tucanos Birding Tours has been offering Brazil Bird Watching and Wildlife Tours since 2002, specialising in birding trips in the Atlantic rainforest and also to other wildlife rich destinations in Brazil including the Pantanal, North-East Brazil, Iguazu Falls and Cristalino Jungle Lodge in the Amazon.
Andy and Cristina Foster set up Serra dos Tucanos lodge back in 2002 which was located just 1.5 hours north-east of Rio de Janeiro in the Serra do Mar Mountains.
In 2015, they moved their whole operation up to the wonderful Itororo Eco-Lodge, which is only 40 minutes away from the previous location of Serra dos Tucanos lodge.
Itororo Eco-lodge now offers the perfect base in which to stay and explore the diverse avifauna of the Atlantic rainforest, seeing numerous endemics and allowing easy access to the whole elevational range of the mountains from just above sea level to the highest peaks at over 2200 metres in altitude.
Andy has been birding and guiding in south-east Brazil since 1995 and has a vast knowledge of the region’s avifauna. Andy leads the majority of the Atlantic Forest tours and works together with other specialised guides who offer expertly guided birding and wildlife tours throughout Brazil.
Andy first visited Brazil back in 1995 when he stayed on a farm just 1.5 hours drive north-east of Rio de Janeiro. Over the course of the following 3 years, Andy together with the landowners started what has now become one of the most successful conservation projects in Brazil.
Serra dos Tucanos Birding Tours has also for many years been a corporate sponsor of the Neotropical Bird Club.
