Transfer to the airport and fly to Cuiaba in the Pantanal wilderness wetlands. Continue by lonely road to your wildlife lodge. This region is a paradise for nature lovers, especially for bird and other wildlife spotting.
Unlike the areas of high jungle, the Pantanal is an open area of swampy grasslands, leaving some of the highest concentration of birds, mammals and reptiles in the continent exposed to view. The wildlife co-exists harmoniously with the cattle that breed on the ranches in the area. According to season, you might observe flocks of thousands of parakeets, rosy spoonbills, ibis, macaws and giant storks.
In the dry season, scores of caiman laze on the river beaches, capybara (a type of giant guinea pig) stroll across the roads, and you may come across armadillos, anteaters and howler monkeys. Rainy season is December to April - roads are muddy and even impassable, excursions may be by boat: but the reflection of the tangerine sunsets on the flooded plains creates a rich and sumptuous image.
You’ll be driven to your wildlife lodge deep in the countryside.
