Discover Landscape galore, waterfalls and cliffs
The Chapada dos Guimarães NP is situated near the western rim of Brazil's Planalto Central - a land of beautifully eroded and fractured red rimrock formations, drained by spectacular waterfalls and dissected by deep ravines containing fingers of the Amazonian forest.
The surrounding countryside is Cerrado - a strange chaparral-like habitat with sandy soil and low gnarled trees dispersed amongst a shrub-dominated plant community. Although it doesn't harbor as diverse an avifauna as the Pantanal, the Chapada region is home to many highly localized species that we won't see elsewhere.
The most memorable aspects may be the scenic canyons with rich tropical forest and screaming macaws.
