Iguazu Falls boat trip and wildlife safari

bra13-iguasuboat-free-embratur

Upgrade your visit to Iguazú with a wildlife safari and open boat ride to the base of the falls.

You can get even closer to Iguazú Falls with the Macuco Safari, a combined safari and boat excursion into the very mouth of the cascading torrents.

First, by exploring the national park’s surprisingly quiet wildlife trails, you’ll see a side to the falls that many visitors miss out on. The subtropical jungle is home to toucans, parrots, monkeys and other frequently sighted exotic creatures, and the wild ambience perfectly sets the scene for stumbling upon the natural wonder that lies at the end of the trail.

An open boat ride close up to the Devil’s Throat is the next exhilarating step of the journey, ensuring you see the falls from their most dramatic angle. Prepare to get very wet as you experience the deluge with all five senses!
