Trip to Pantanal

The Pantanal is the world’s largest wetland area with the greatest number of animal species in the Western Hemisphere, located in the states of Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul (also parts of Bolivia and Paraguay). It is a gigantic ecosystem home to a large number of birds species as the jabiru, the tallest flying bird found in South America, reptiles as the caiman, fish and invertebrates, all spread out in forests, meadows and grasslands.

Nearly 80% of the Pantanal floodplains are submerged during the rainy seasons. The region is known as one of the best places in the world for fishing and bird watching. Other adventurous exploits: fishing for piranhas amongst caimans, boat trips, watching the alligators and other animals on the river and even herding cattle on horseback.
