The Wildlife-Rich Chaco

The Chaco region in the north of Paraguay, is a vast wilderness, largely uninhabited and home to some unique wildlife. With seemingly endless plains, salty lagoons and savannahs, the Chaco is a haven for wildlife and nature lovers, as well as photography enthusiasts. Wildlife that can be seen in the area include giant anteaters, tapir, caiman and armadillo, but the wide variety of birdlife here is the real draw. From woodpeckers and woodcreepers to eagles and rheas, plus lots of migratory birds and waterfowl. Until the 1920s, the Chaco inhabitants consisted mainly of remote indigenous communities, when the European Mennonite settlers arrived seeking religious freedom. They built thriving agricultural colonies amidst the rugged landscape and are now known for their expertise in dairy farming, producing high-quality cheese and yogurt. 

Holidays to Paraguay start from £3,999pp. Get in touch to find out prices for your perfect trip.

The Area

An adventure into this untamed region begins in the gateway town of Filadelfia, where Mennonite culture thrives, and a smattering of simple hotels act as a base for day trips into the Chaco. 

Best Time to Go

The best time to visit the rural communities and wildlife of the Chaco is May to October, when migrating birds arrive. Temperatures are in the high 20s, and humidity levels are comfortable during this period. Between November and April, temperatures can soar to over 40°C with high humidity.
