South America nature tours can include wildlife watching or simply enjoying the landscapes such as the Andes in Peru, the rainforests in Brazil, volcanoes in Ecuador or the plains and mountains of Patagonia. The best South America wildlife tours include Galapagos cruises where you can observe giant tortoises, iguanas, sea lions and snorkel with sharks! On land, one of the best places to see wildlife in South America is in the Pantanal Wetlands. These are seasonally flooded plains, rich in animal life, including capybara, tapirs, anteaters and even jaguars. In contrast, the Amazon Rainforest is fantastic for a South America nature tour, to learn about the forest and the flora. The jungle is rich in animal life, but it is harder to spot than in the Pantanal. Wondering where to see penguins or where to see whales? Patagonia is one of the best options for both. There are many more options and every South America nature and wildlife package is customized to fit your travel style, pace and schedule.
