pantanal brazil

Covering a staggering 140,000 sq. km (almost twice the size of Ireland), the Pantanal is the world’s largest wetland.

Home to some of South America’s largest animal species, it has a variety of wildlife comparable to that of eastern Africa. Jaguars, giant anteaters, and anacondas are just some of the rare and astonishing animal species in this largely unexplored wilderness. Home to the world’s richest collection of aquatic plants, 80% of this dynamic landscape is submerged under water during the wet season.

things to do

  • The Pantanal’s flat terrain makes it much easier to spot wildlife like anteaters and blue-hyacinth macaws than in a dense rainforest, especially by canoe or horseback.
  • A stay at Caiman Lodge not only means superb accommodation but also increased chances of spotting the elusive jaguar.
  • Grab your fishing rod, don your gear and head off piranha fishing!

best time to visit


The Pantanal’s dry season begins in April, and is a considerably more practical time of year to track wildlife. Wildlife tend to congregate around water holes during the dry season, so you’ve a much greater chance of seeing a large variety of species at once. The best time for tracking jaguar would be from June to October.
