Safari in Brazil – Jalapão

Jalapão, CERRADO

In the heartland of Brazil, in the middle of the immensity of Serra Geral with its rivers of pure and crystalline water, beaches, arid and primitive nature, there is JALAPÃO. Located in the west of the recently formed state of Tocantins, with an area of 34.133km2, it is a transition region between the stunted spare vegetation and waste land composed of stunted twisted trees, called “Jalapão desert” – it is really a large oasis, since, in spite of the sandy soil, this region pertaining to the mountain has springs and brooks which in their descent to the Tocantins river valley, besides forming beautiful waterfalls and rapids, allows the survival of a diversified fauna and flora. The origin of the word Jalapão is related to the Jalapa (plant found in that region)
