Travel Finder – When do you want to go?
This year the ‘Safari do Brasil’ in cooperation with the team from ‘Kiteboarding Events’ takes place once again. The boys and girls with whom we already worked together in Sicily and South Africa, revealed many times how to organize great kite events. This team is full of Brazil experts who have organized the ‘Safari do Brasil’ for years. They take you to the best spots in the North-East of the country.
The safari starts in the long lagoon of Taiba, north of Cumbuco and ends in Preà where the Caipi mile is waiting for tired kitesurfers.
When you join us on our Kite Surf Safari in Brazil, you can say goodbye to the crowded beaches and mass tourism. You will say hello to expansive flatwater lagoons and pristine northeast beaches, scouted for you by our pros. With no more than 13 guests per tour, you will endless space to fly over the water. Since life is a journey, why not ride it with style? What better way of travelling can you think of than with your kite? That’s right, we will travel by kite along the beaches of Northeast Brazil, while the 4X4 truck follows us close by, while we are kiting on the ocean until the next flat water lagoon. The Safari is suited for advanced kitesurfer. Viva Brasil!
The 2020 Safaris take you via downwind to the most amazing spots in Northern Brazil. A shallow lagoon in Taiba, our insider Itaqui or the beautiful Prea, with it´s holiday vibe – everybody will find exactly what they need.
Safari do Brasil starts with a two-hour drive from the airport of the Brazilian capital Fortaleza in Flecheiras / Guajiru. The tour has three stops on the northeast coast of Brazil.
Stop 1: Flecheiras / Guajiru is an indigenous small fishing village with about 800 inhabitants. Here you will stay hidden between coconut trees on a tropical beach for the first five nights. The Vila Vagalume is a private beach resort and consists of 34 charming and elegant rooms. On the beaches the wind blows between 20 and 28 knots. From August to October it can reach a constant 30 knots. Flecheiras / Guajiru is therefore one of the best spots for kitesurfing on the Brazilian coast. If you want to look around outside Guajiru, no problem. The next bigger place with some bars and restaurants is only a few minutes by buggy.
Stop 2: From Guajiru we go on to the city of Jericoacoara, short Jeri. It is located in the middle of the Jericoacoara National Park and is surrounded by numerous dunes. Here you can not only go kiting but also heat up a beach buggy through the huge dunes and go sandboarding. Or you can enjoy the best sunsets from above in the warm sand with an unbelievably beautiful view. In the evening you can enjoy Jeri’s nightlife for a night out. From Jeri probably the best downwinders in Brazil will start.
Stop 3: You will experience the end of the safari in Ilha do Guajiru. The place is still under construction and has a total flair. And wind. From morning till night you can swing from bed to board or from board to hammock. Experience the untouched nature and Brazilian hospitality while kiting is the main focus. The lagoon is a beautiful shallow water spot in a bay protected by a large headland. On the other side of the headland there are small to medium sized waves for all wavecracks.
The safari is just the right thing to arrive on holiday and experience unforgettable moments on the water and on land.
For those of you who just can’t get enough of the beautiful north of Brazil, there is of course the possibility to combine the individual safaris to ensure the maximum safari experience.
