Description of the tour

To get to the Botanical Garden, you circle the famous Lagoa that lies in the middle of the souther section of Rio. Once there you encounter and appreciate over 9,000 different types of plants, including 900 varieties of palm trees, an impressive orchid collections a group of carnivorous plants, cacti, bromeliads, trees (including pau-brasil, which gave the country its name) and tropical plants. You also admire a multitude of birds, small Mico monkeys, turtles, insects and Japanese carp. If so desired and to complete the nature experience, our promenade will extend to the Parque Lage which is only 1.500 m away. It is a beautiful park at the foot of Corcovado mount that immerses you into a lush, dark and fairy tale like atmosphere of winding paths, rocks formations and waterfalls. The antique and well conserved mansion at its heart was built in the early twentieth as a gift for the opera singer Gabriela Benzanzoni by her husband.
