The Botanical Garden in Rio de Janeiro or Jardim Botânico is located at the Jardim Botânico district in the Zona Sul of Rio de Janeiro.

The Botanical Garden of Rio sits at the top of the list of the world’s biggest gardens, with an impressive 1.400.000 square meters, out of which only 540.000 can be visited. It shows the diversity of Brazilian and foreign flora. There are around 6,500 species (some endangered) distributed throughout the park. There are numerous greenhouses, and the garden also houses monuments of historical, artistic and archaeological significance. There is an important research center, which includes the most complete library in the country specializing in botany with over 32,000 volumes. The garden also works as a botanic school, where PHD students from all over the world come try their degree.

On this RioLIVE! Activity,  as we walk around this huge garden, we are going to enjoy the views and beautiful natural corners around. We are going to see lots of different orchids, bromeliads, will know some Brazilian history and will discover why almost all the species on the Botanical Garden in Rio de Janeiro are not local species. If we are lucky we will get to see the garden’s wildlife as well, since the monkeys, toucans, cranes, armadillos and lizards live free in it. It’s going to be a pleasant and healthy walk! Join us and let us explore this amazing place together…is there a better set up to practice our Portuguese skills and learn on the go? Didn’t think so =)
