Iguassu Falls, Festival of Wildlife Brazil 2010

Iguassu Falls

It is only a two-hour flight from Rio takes you south to the border with Argentina and the mighty Iguassu Falls. Set amongst lush tropical forest there are 275 waterfalls, which stretch for a total of three kilometres. Higher than Niagara and more impressive than Victoria Falls, the surrounding national park is home to over 2,000 species of plants, 400 species of birds and an array of mammals. Visits to both the Argentinean and Brazilian sides of the Falls are highly recommended.

Yacutinga Rainforest Lodge is a short drive away from Iguassu Falls and set in a private rainforest reserve, it's the perfect place to observe countless mammals, birds and plants. We recommend a visit here - for more information - click here.
