Chapada dos Veadeiros is one of two Brazilian national parks in the protected areas of Cerrado, the most biodiverse savanna in the world. Within the park’s 929 square miles reside jaguar, capybara and endangered species including the giant armadillo. The park is noted for its more than 300 waterfalls and rock formations, which are some of the oldest in the world. Chapada dos Veadeiros is also home to some of Brazil’s largest Quilombo, communities founded by people who resisted slavery.
