Whether you are a casual birder or a serious world lister, we offer some of the very best birding in the Atlantic Forest. Our reserve contains forest ranging from 100 feet to around 7,000 feet above sea level, making Guapi Assu Bird Lodge the ideal location to see a good altitudinal cross-section of Atlantic Forest birds. Over 435 species have been sighted to date, ranging from forest dwelling toucans, woodpeckers, owls, cotingas, manakins, antbirds and tanagers, to wetland birds such as herons, rails, wildfowl and waders. So far 63 Brazilian endemics have been recorded.
We have produced a suggested birding itinerary, designed to maximize your chances of seeing a good range of Atlantic Forest specialties. The itinerary includes visits to different habitats, forest trails at various altitudes and excursions to a number of birding sites outside the reserve.
Our expert bird guides are also available for hire if you would like help with finding and identifying birds. If you are unfamiliar with rainforest birding then hiring a bird guide is strongly recommended, as is booking in advance to ensure availability (please see our rates page).
