Ibera Wetlands

Amazing Nature Reserve occupying 1,300,000 hectares of land in Northwest Argentina.

The area is a wildlife paradise and home to numerous protected species such as yacaré crocodiles, capybara, marsh deer, carayá monkeys, foxes and hares, to name a few. It is also a haven for birdlife with over 350 species in the area, as well as thousands of multi-coloured butterflies.

There are a number of lodges and ranches where you can stay and explore the area. The best way to experience the reserve is by boat (or lancha). Spotting wildlife as you gently moving through the clear blue lagoons and waterways is a fantastic experience and well worth the journey to get there.

The  Area

The wetlands occupy a vast 1,300,000 hectares of land and each lodge is located in a different part. Most lodges include full board and a programme of excursions into the wetlands with their own guides. The nearest airport is Posadas and transfers can take up to 4-6 hours from there, so we would recommend a minimum of 3 nights to make the journey worthwhile.

Best Time to Go

The Ibera Wetlands can be visited all year round and the weather generally remains warm and humid. The most popular months to visit are July, August, September, October and April.

Black Howler Monkeys

Black howler monkeys normally occupy the canopy of the forests that are located throughout the Ibera Wetlands Reserve. They are very noisy and their howl is more like a roar than a a noise you would expect to hear from a monkey. This means you most often hear them before you can see them!

Capybara

Capybara are the worlds largest rodent. Imagine a guinea pig like animal but weighing about 70kg! These animals normally live in large groups on the shores of the Reserve and are most often seen sunbathing or eating!

Birdlife

Ibera Wetlands are home to over 350 species of birds which makes it a paradise for bird watchers. Species include Black-hooded Parakeet, Blue-fronted Parrot, and the Large-billed and Yellow-billed Terns. Even if you are not the biggest fan of bird watching you can't ignore some very impressive species as well as the thousands of multi coloured butterflies that are also in the air.

San Carlos de Pelligrini

San Carlos de Pellegrini is a sleepy town made up of dusty streets, adobe buildings and artisan shops on the banks of Laguna Ibera. Due to it's location and being one of the few villages in the area, it tends to be the starting point for a number of the trips into the Reserve.
