Pantanal Photo Safari

Pantanal

Brazil – South America

The Pantanal is regarded as one of the world’s gems when it comes to Photographic Safari destinations, which is home to the third-largest cat species in the world, the Jaguar.  This destination is famous for these incredible cats that prey on Caiman crocodiles, native to South America.

During your 11 day tour, you will also have the opportunity to photograph among the rarest animals to inhabit the wetland of the Pantanal, such as the Giant River Otter, the South American Tapir, Toucan, Giant Anteater, Capybara, Ocelot, and Yacaré Caiman. 

The Rivers and channels in the Pantanal provide easy access for the customized photographic boat equipped with revolving centerline camera mounts, to locations frequented by the jaguars.
