PHE20 - Herping Expedition with Matthieu Berroneau




Kevin Price - 2019

"Erwan worked hard making sure we had everything we needed during every day of the trip. The trip was fantastic! We hiked more than I thought we would, which is good, and then road cruised and night hiked until late in the night every night. With every animal we found we all had more than enough time to photograph it how we wanted to. The priority was making sure we had the images we wanted before we moved on. We were also allowed to get close to the animals to make our images something special. This was hands on up close herping.

Between our guide and herpetologist, we knew what every animal was we were looking at, even the non herps. This was a very well run and organized expedition. If you've been thinking about how they will be run, Herping Brazil is the answer. Their priority is you and making sure you get out of it what you want. We found so many animals and I came away with so many wondeful photographs and memories, I can't recommend Herping Brazil enough."
