Why Rickshaw

Why Rickshaw

We take you closer to the real Brazil, stay in small locally-owned pousadas, visit a community project in a Rio favela or spot wildlife from your stilted bungalow in the Amazon Rainforest. Navigating such a big country can be tricky so we arrange everything in advance from your local accommodation and excursions to domestic flights and transfers.

  • Spot the diverse wildlife in the Pantanal Wetlands
  • Drive the Coconut Highway at your own pace, visit small fishing villages on the way
  • Wander the cobbled streets of colonial Salvador, with distinct African flavour
