Foz do Iguacu - Macuco Safari with Brazilian Falls
For passengers staying at Hotel das Cataratas, the tour starts by walking from the hotel, located inside the Iguaçu National Park (if you are staying at a hotel outside of the National Park, a transfer will need to be arranged). We will take a descending trail of the canyon, from where we can enjoy panoramic views of more than 240 falls. We will board a glass elevator, which takes us to a platform were more exquisite views will be revealed. Along with its “sister” park in Argentina, The Iguassu National Park forms the most significant remaining rainforest in the southern cone of South America, which along with the waterfalls have been declared a National Heritage Site by UNESCO.
We will end the tour with a visit to the artisans’ fair. The big adventure begins at the Macuco Safari entrance gates, located at kilometer 25 on the Cataratas Highway, inside the Iguassu National Park. We will embark in open jeep-towed wagons permiting a free view of the scenery along the trail. During the three kilometers stretch through the jungle, multi-lingual guides point out and explain the flora and fauna of the Park.
Second stage of the tour is an optional hike of 600 meters, which leads us to the waterfall baptized Macuco Falls. The Macuco Falls, perfect for a refreshing dip on days of intense heat, spill down from a height of approximately 20 meters. Access is via a stairway carved into an ancient rock.
The last stop is the Macuco Safari dock on the Brazilian side of the Iguassu River. In the water the inflatable bi-motor boats are secure and efficient vessels, especially constructed to withstand the rigors of the excursion. Before embarking, passengers receive life-vests and plastic containers made to protect
photographic and filming equipment. The boat travels up-river, passing the canyon, facing the rapids, at a speed permitting the appreciation of the scenery. Rocks, animals and a spectacular green landscape complete the scenery until we reach the great horseshoe known as the Devil's Throat.
To top the tour off, the pilot will give everyone a splash by navigating through the spray of one of the falls! We recommend that passengers bring a change of clothes, due to the constant spray from the falls, and to not bring anything that can get wet - lockers are available at the pier before boarding.
