There is no finer place in Brazil to observe wildlife than the Pantanal. This remote region in the far west of the country has one of the highest concentrations of animals on the globe and with its wide open watery landscape, viewings are usually a commonplace and relatively simple affair. The Pantanal covers a vast area – it stretches into neighbouring Bolivia and Paraguay – and not all can be accessed, however, the main entry point closest to the reserve is the city of Cuiaba which still retains much of its frontier-town flavour. People visit the Pantanal for the wildlife and there is plenty to see with it home to an incredible variety of birdlife as well as anaconda and jaguar. To the north, also visit the excellent Parque Nacional da Chapada dos Guimaraes with its waterfalls and grand rock formations. All of our holidays and tours to western Brazil are unique and fully personalised.
