Discover Brazil, a country that is unusually blessed. Five thousand miles of coastline – some of it packed with cafes and partygoers, but long stretches blissfully empty. Rainforests and wetlands teem with exotic critters. Some of the oldest cities and civic architecture in the New World (and one of the newest cities in the entire world) are here.

Located in the heart of South America, the Pantanal is the world’s largest wetland, 20 times the size of the famed Everglades in Florida. Vast and verdant, it covers much of inland central and southern Brazil and is teeming with birds and wildlife from toucan to caiman, capybara, ocelot and even Jaguar.

The Pantanal has few people and no towns and the wildlife here is staggering. Nowhere else in South America can you find as many indigenous species. Over 250 different birds have been recorded here, including parakeets, macaws, kingfishers, ibis, storks, kites and hawks, hummingbirds and more – and there are also prolific numbers of jacare, anacondas, iguanas, two species of anteaters, ocelot, jaguars, cougars, giant river otters and thousands of pamba and march deer. One of the easier animals to spot is the capybara, a giant guinea pig type rodent that grows up to 60 kg. and lives in large herds in the swamps.

This tour allows you to explore the immense Pantanal wetlands and enjoy close encounters with rare and exotic animals – perfect for adventurers and wildlife enthusiasts.
