Have your camera on hand to make beautiful photos during your trip where nature is often still untouchable until you reach the area where you can see the Golden Lion Tamarin Monkey in the wild.

What to expect:

This is such a great chance to see those small, beautiful golden monkeys. At only 1 1/2 hours’ drive from Rio you can see the results of long term conservation planning and international cooperation. The beautiful Golden Lion Tamarin Monkey, unique to a small area of the State of Rio de Janeiro, nearly went extinct in the wild..

This tour will help you understand why it nearly went extinct and how the conservation program, not only brought the population numbers back up, but also changed the region and helped create many private reserves.

You get to go out with the scientists in the field, will meet these captivating monkeys (great photo opportunities) and discover a beautiful area.
