Brazil Wildlife: Deep Pantanal and Amazon

14 days from £6434pp

Private Journey


Brazil hosts vast areas of wilderness landscapes with a prolific and varied endemic wildlife. The hot, and until recently remote, interior states of Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul are sparsely populated; much of the territory is carpeted with savannah grassland cut through by rivers and dotted with table-lands, swamp and tropical forest.  In the grasslands, cattle ranching co-exists symbiotically with the wildlife, but much land has now been put down to soya cultivation.

On this holiday with a wildlife-viewing focus we take you to three locations for a comprehensive experience of wetland and tropical rainforest. The Pantanal’s open area of marshy grasslands, rivers and lagoons leaves fauna exposed to view. According to season, you might observe regiments of alligators, and flocks of thousands of roseate spoonbills, ibis, macaws and giant storks.  In contrast, Alta Floresta has undisturbed primary rainforest hosting a variety of mammals, reptiles and especially birds.
