In November 2016 we drove more than 2,200 miles (3,540 km) in Brazil. We started the month in Chapada dos Veadeiros National Park, north of Brasilia, the capital of Brazil, and ended in the western state of Mato Grosso Sur. Our plans were interrupted by emergency surgery, but here’s how our South American road trip driving route in Brazil panned out for November 2016. Come along on our Brazil road trip and see what we saw through the windshield of our truck in the drive-lapse video at the end of this post.

November 2016 South American Road Trip Driving Route in Brazil

Our road trip driving route for the month of November 2016 began north of Brasilia in the Chapada dos Veadeiros National Park. From there we made a beeline to the bustling metropolis of Sao Paulo. After spending a few weeks in Sao Paulo we headed west toward the Bolivian border and prepared to cross before our Brazil visas expired.

On the way to the border we stopped in the small tourist destination of Bonito for their famous snorkeling and diving in the area’s famous crystal-clear, spring-fed rivers. However, Karen developed appendicitis which required us to delay our Bonito visit and rush to nearby Campo Grande, the capital of Mato Grosso state, for emergency surgery.

Here’s a map of what our South American road trip through Brazil during the month of November 2016 looked like.

And you can see what we saw out there on the road in the drive-lapse video, below, made by our Brinno camera which is attached to our dashboard.
