South America

Last updated: 1 April 2018
South America a wild and beautiful country, from the enormous rain forests of the Amazon Jungle to the mighty Amazon River that runs through it, from the majestic, snow-capped Andes to the granite peaks and enormous lakes in Chile that teem with animals found nowhere else on earth.  On one continent, the glaciers of Patagonia and the sun kissed beaches of Brazil and Panama bless the landscape.

In Argentina the Iguazu waterfalls, all two hundred and fifty of them, create a spectacular natural show, and on the Galapagos Islands off Ecuador the eco system is like no other on earth.

South America

The history and culture of South America is equally diverse. This is land of the Tango, the Salsa and the Samba, Brazilian coffee and Chilean wine.  Archaeological remains of ancient and mystical Inca towns and temples tower over the surrounding countryside. Colonial villages sport cobble stoned roads and pretentious Spanish Cathedrals, whilst traditional tribes float their grass homes In the middle of Lake Titicaca, birthplace of the Incas.
