Golden Lion Tamarin Guaranteed 2017-05-31T14:19:48+00:00

This charming little rock star of the rainforest is simultaneously one of the most beautiful primates on Earth, but also has come back from the brink of extinction and now can be seen in one morning on an outing from your hotel in Rio de Janeiro. You will spend 75 minutes within 5-20 meters of 6-12 of these two-pound (one kilo), glowing orange-yellow monkeys, which appear to have manes a bit like a lion, hence the name. Most travelers who visit Rio de Janeiro never even hear about the opportunity to have a private interview with this unbelievably cute little monkey. SouthWild is one of very few tour operators in Brazil authorized by the government to take guests to meet this monkey in the wild in its rainforest home.
