As the world’s largest wetlands area, the Pantanal, though less well- known than the Amazon, is one of South America’s premier wildlife spotting locations.

Made up of a variety of distinct terrains and ecosystems – wetlands, savannah and rainforest – this remains of the most unspoilt and abundant habitats in the world.

There are hundreds of animal species unique to the area, including 698 bird species, 80 mammals, 260 fish species and 50 reptiles.

The Pantanal is home to many exotic and endangered species including hyacinth macaws, toucans, tapir, giant anteaters, giant otters, the maned wolf, jaguar and capybara.

When to go

This will depend on what you are looking to spot. However, it's generally best during the dry season (July-September) or the transition seasons (March-June and September-November)
