Top 5 Pantanal Tours
Many travelers think the Amazon Rainforest is the best place to spot rare fauna and flora. However, it is actually the Pantanal Wetlands that offer the best wildlife spotting opportunities when taking a tour of Brazil. Pantanal Brazil tours provide the best chances of spotting a Pantanal jaguar, colorful birds, and giant anteaters, as its foliage is far less dense than the Amazon’s.
Pantanal Brazil Conservation Area, a Birdwatcher’s Paradise
The vast Brazil Pantanal conservation region in southern and eastern Brazil is home to a variety of birds, mammals, fish, and other wildlife. Prepare to spot caiman in the water, capybara roaming the terrain, and giant river otters playing. On your trip to Brazil, relax in a cozy Pantanal lodge, snorkel in Nobres, explore the wetlands on a horseback riding adventure, and learn how to fish for piranha! All of our fully-custom Pantanal trips are sure to give travelers the ultimate nature and wildlife experience.
There are so many species of birds and animals that you might see while on a Pantanal tour. Depending on the season and the area of the Pantanal where you explore, you’ll see different animals. But you’re almost guaranteed to see caiman, which number about 10 million in the region. Capybara, the world’s largest rodent, are also very common. Animals like the giant river otter, the piranha, and even jaguars are possible to spot here. If you’re interested in spotting jaguars, we can arrange lodging and guided tours that are dedicated to spotting jaguars. We recommend visiting between June and November for the best chances. Most Pantanal tours are arranged along with lodging at a jungle lodge, so we can book all services, including the guides, tours, meals, lodging, and transportation. The best way to access the Pantanal is by flying into the city of Cuiaba or Campo Grande.
