When Do You Want To Go?

One Of The Best Places For Wildlife In South America

The Brazilian Pantanal is the world's largest freshwater wetland which straddles the borders of Brazil, Paraguay and Bolivia. It is regarded as the best place to spot wild animals in the whole of South America. You can spot Caiman, Howler Monkey, Giant Otter, Anaconda, Capybara, Ocelot, Marmoset, Tapir, Peccary and if you are lucky, the Jaguar.

There are a number of lodges and ranches where you can stay and explore the area. The best way to experience the wetlands is by boat, and spotting wildlife as you gently move through the lagoons and waterways is a fantastic experience. One of the most popular times of the year to visit is from June to September because of the incredible array of birdlife. At this time of year you will see Parrots, Toucans, Macaws and a variety of other birds covering the sky.

The Area

The Pantanal is split across two states, Mato Grosso (the northern Pantanal) and Mato Grosso do Sul (the Southern Pantanal). The Southern Pantanal is the most visited and the town of Campo Grande is the access point for the area. Each lodge is located in a different part of the wetlands and most lodges include full board and a programme of excursions into the wetlands with their own guides.

Best Time to Go

The Pantanal has two seasons - wet and dry. The dry season runs from April to October and temperatures range from 23C - 28C. The best time for watching birds is July to September. We do not really recommend travelling during the peak of the wet season from December to February.
