Our Brazil birdwatching tours have no unusual specific gear required. But considering a trip to the warm tropical climate of Brazil and nearly all year round heat, it is important to not forget some items. Check a suggested list below:

NECESSARY ITEMS
- Binoculars: from many different types, sizes and specifications available, try to afford for a good quality in terms of optics, magnification power and overall performance;
- Clothing: Long-sleeved shirts, t-shirts, light trousers, shorts, swim suits, good walking shoes, sandals, cotton socks, one set of warmer clothes, a hat or cap, light rain jacket; avoid bright colors and bring preferably comfortable and light clothes;
- Sun block;
- Insect repellent;
- Medical kit (analgesic, cold/fever medicine, anti-diarrhea, antibiotic, eye-drops, plasters, personal medications, spare glasses or contact lens, etc);
- Personal toiletries (shampoo, toothpaste, etc);
- Small backpack/daypack (also to be used as hand luggage);
- Credit cards and some cash (several places do not accept credit cards);

OTHER RECOMMENDED ITEMS

Remember when packing

Most types of transportation have a luggage limit weight per person. Check out details about it according to your trip and itineraries.  As lighter you pack more enjoyable your trip gets, and helps to avoid problems with luggage’s excess of weight. In any case, traveling light is always better.
