This trip is an overland trip run in an overland truck. In addition to paying for your trip, you're require to make a separate payment to your tour leader at the start of the trip, usually in USD. Kitties are flexible and change as prices are updated. Therefore you should check the latest kitty amount on this website before you depart.
A kitty is a group fund which covers all accommodation, meals while camping (not in hotels) and activities listed as included. It's a system unique to overlanding to provide the maximum flexibility and best value on the road (you get everything at cost price!). The kitty is your money, not ours, so any amount left over is divided among the group as a refund.Close

Discovery tours are all about exploring & experiencing the world with like-minded people, dipping your toe beneath the usual tourist surface & discovering the real essence of a region. They are genuinely innovative, exciting & imaginative tours that offer that little bit more to travellers.
Join the thousands of Cariocas for a week long frenzy of dancing and celebration in the Sambadrome and across the entire city.
Our Standard Carnival Package package is a step up from the Independent package and is designed for those who want to have a full Rio Carnival experience, party and all, from the comfort of a good quality 3 star hotel in Flamengo region of Rio, based on twin/double share accommodation. You will be looked after by Brazilian staff who know Rio and love Carnival, and will help bring you the best of Carnival, whether in a bar, at the Sambadrome or on a walking tour.
This trip includes your Sambadrome ticket, a guided half day trip up Corcovado and another to Sugar Loaf mountain, as well as an introductory walking tour.
We can also help with a large range of optional activities, such as going to the Gay Ball, visiting a favela community project and even joining the Samba parade itself. These optional activities must be requested before carnival starts.
The first day of Rio Carnival is free time, as everyone will be arriving at various times throughout the day to start the package. Hotel check-in is from midday and your local crew will be on hand all day to give you any assistance. There will be a joining meeting in the early evening. Please check the notice board in the lobby / reception area for exact times for your meeting. After the meeting there will be a table booked in a restaurant if you wish to join your group and local guide for a meal.
