Brazil is an important country for most Africans. It’s the most influential country in the whole of South America and an emerging economic power.

Brazil is by far the largest country in South America. It’s so large that Brazil shared a border with every South American country namely Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, Bolivia, and Peru. Only Chile and Ecuador are not inclusive.

Travelling to Brazil is a good feeling. Due to the fact that Brazil is a diverse country being in Brazil you are sure of unquantifiable fun, a country that usually organised the most famous and fun-filled carnival festival in the world.


Currently travelling to Brazil for any reason should be put on hold because the country is badly affected by the coronavirus pandemic.  Factually speaking,  many people are dying daily and there’s no end in sight. From the beginning,  unfortunately, the current President of Brazil did not handle the issue of coronavirus pandemic seriously. We hope the advent of vaccines from different companies and countries will change the situation for the better.

If you’re interested in travelling to Brazil currently you must make serious enquiries and get all the necessary vaccinations to avoid the coronavirus pandemic.
