    Your guide will meet you at your hotel to take you on a land safari to the Pantanal where you will board the Jaguar House Boat. The ship has nine air-conditioned cabins, a dining area, and an open viewing deck. These amenities make for a peaceful boat ride along the Paraguay River. Over the next few days, you will explore secluded areas of the Pantanal where few tourists visit.

    On today's excursion, you will take the river safari motor boat, equipped with 12 comfortable chairs, plenty of space, and perfect for taking fantastic pictures of wildlife. After lunch, on the houseboat, you will go on another river safari ride to search for jaguars and other wildlife. In the evening, return for dinner and enjoy your first night on the Jaguar House Boat.
