Brazil is undeniably immense, and not only in the geographical sense. The 5th largest country in the world and largest in the continent, she dominates the map of South America, has the largest portion of the Amazon Jungle and River, and an Atlantic coastline spanning a staggering 7,500 kilometres. But what Brazil flaunts in size she equals in personality, and whilst it is true that each of the Latin American countries differs considerably, she is arguably the one with the most individual identity and iconic culture, one whose images are most evocative and celebrated. A Brazil safari holiday really does cover all the bases.
The arrival of the Olympics in 2016 are sure to force the spotlight on Brazil as it prepares to invest enormous amounts in its infrastructure and guarantee a future as bright as its carnival costumes. Now would be a great time to experience this fascinating country as she enters a new phase in her celebrity.
