The Pantanal in Brazil

A wonderful place for South American wildlife
In September 2013 we travelled with Naturetrek to the Pantanal region in Brazil. The Pantanal offers probably the greatest wildlife experience in South America.

"The Pantanal is to the Americas what the Serengeti is to Africa. The aquatic heart of South America showcases some of the most breathtaking gatherings of mammals, birds and reptiles that you could ever hope to see. The numbers in the world's largest wetland can challenge credulity....The Pantanal, in short, is a wildlife watcher's paradise". (James Lowen: Pantanal Wildlife: a visitor's guide. Bradt, 2010).
