Day 12: Cuiaba to Iguazu Falls

For those joining on the extension tour, you will fly from Cuiaba to Sao Paulo and onto Iguazu Falls airport where on arrival you will be collected and taken on a road transfer across the border of Argentina and onward to your superbly located hotel in the heart of Iguazú National Park, the Sheraton Iguazu. The park protects the vast majority of one of the most important forests south of the Amazon, the Interior Atlantic Forest. This forest is home to dozens of unique orchid species, small primates, rare bats and several endemic birds. Here the Iguazú River falls 70 meters, forming a fan of cascades with more than 250 individual waterfalls!

Day 13 & 14: Iguazu Falls

You have 2 full days to enjoy the wonders of this magnificent area with your guide. You will get to enjoy the falls to their fullest by strolling the park’s walkways and stopping at their many lookouts, where you will behold some spectacular views. These trails have been built at different levels, and visitors have a chance to see the falls from both above and below. There are at least 68 species of mammals that call Iguazu National Park home however they are tricky to see in the dense Atlantic forest and it is usually only comical bands of South American Coati and small troops of Capuchin Monkeys that entertain the mammal enthusiasts. Birding in Iguazu National Park is exceptional, a myriad of colourful birds live in Iguazú, including Surucua Trogon, Red-ruffed Fruitcrow, Blue Manakin, five species of Euphonias, and several species of Tanagers, all of which are commonly found here. You can also expect to see thousands of Great Dusky Swifts and several species of forest raptors, while the forest canopy is home to noisy flocks of parrots, parakeets, antwrens, and five species of toucans! The magic of the forest is further accentuated by the distinctive calls of species such as Solitary Tinamou, Spot-winged Wood-Quail, Tufted Antshrike and Southern Antpipit.

Day 15: Iguazú Falls to Sao Paulo and depart

This morning you have a very early start as you make your way back to the airport in time for your early departure flight back to Sao Paulo to connect with your flights home.

We were very lucky to have such knowledgeable guides, Shadow had the ability to place us in the right spot at the right time when other guides were still thinking about it. It was nice just to sit and observe the interactions.
Great tour, the mix of participants also worked well. Many eyes help spot things which might otherwise be missed (back seats are higher and sometimes you just catch a glimpse that the front seat people miss).

Great communications and customer service.
One of the best trips I’ve been on. The sightings were fantastic, Andre was great, the food phenomenal and the support staff exceptional!
Andre was an excellent guide in all regards and made sure everything went smoothly.

LH - Tailor-made South Africa & Botswana October 2018

I want to thank all of you at Rockjumper who worked to give me and my six friends the trip of a lifetime! The trip was perfectly planned; we saw a wonderful array of sights in perfect settings and lodgings all throughout the thirteen days. Logistically, everything worked like clockwork and it took all the stress out of traveling.

But without a doubt, what made the trip so incredibly special was our tour guide/leader, Rainer Summers. He not only lead us to the sights, through airports and into the bush but he managed to keep us all together, without losing anyone for more than five minutes – and I can assure you: that was not an easy task. (We really are not senile – just a bit independent).

His knowledge of what we saw and where to take us, especially in Cape Town improved our experience greatly. His knowledge of the wildlife and its social structure and behavior at Mala Mala and in Botswana increased our appreciation of what we saw exponentially. Nothing was too much trouble whether it was showing us how to use binoculars or camera or how to spot birds.

He also made sure that everyone was comfortable and at ease in all situations. He anticipated everyone’s needs and he ensured that we all had what we needed and/or wanted everywhere.

But most of all, Rainer was delightful to be with. He was fun and his wit and sense of humor made him a great companion. He is a tremendous asset to your organization. We all would like to return to Africa and Rockjumper’s tours but we will want to have no one but Rainer with us!!! We cannot envision a tour leader who could top this experience.

So, thank you for arranging the tour and a special thanks for choosing Rainer to be our guide. It was a magnificent experience and a week later, I am still wishing I was in Africa!

Sincerely,
LH
