Our quest is to seek South America’s “Big Five” – Jaguar, Giant Anteater, Giant Otter, Ocelot, and South American Tapir. We travel to both the north and south Pantanal regions where marshes, lakes, and streams provide diverse ecosystems that foster superb wildlife encounters. Travel down the famous “Transpantaneira Highway” to Porto Jofre where day tours on the Cuibá River afford numerous opportunities to see Jaguars, Giant Otters, and others not easily seen by land. While in the southern Pantanal, stay at Caiman Lodge, a top wildlife destination in Brazil, and also a sure bet for Giant Anteaters and Ocelots. We also find a plethora of beautiful birds, such as the Hyacinth Macaw, to photograph and enjoy. The Pantanal Conservation Complex is a UNESCO world heritage site and biosphere reserve of spectacular beauty.
