Pantanal Tours: an Overview

In the centre of South America lies the largest inland delta in the world, the Pantanal, or flooded outback, in the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso.

Will, Hero and Ysobel are here to help give you the inside track.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • The Pantanal - an area the size of Great Britain - is by far the best place to see wildlife in Brazil, and we know a particularly good spot where sightings of the elusive jaguar are all but guaranteed

Luxury Tours of the Pantanal: The Detail

Today, life in the Pantanal follows a yearly cycle of rising and falling waters, dictated by the rains and the course of the great Paraguay River and its many meandering tributaries.

The Pantanal is a must-visit destination for nature lovers and there are some great tours out there. The diversity of vegetation, the rich soil and the abundance of water attract and sustain an enormous variety of wildlife. Most of the wildlife is also encountered in other parts of Brazil, but nowhere are they as easily seen as in the Pantanal, even in comparison to the Amazon.

Stay in a variety of environmentally friendly farm-hotels, offering full board plus a variety of tours by open vehicle, boat and on foot. Some also offer safaris on horseback, the best way of seeing the wildlife.

Among the fauna of the Pantanal, as well as over 650 species of bird, you can see crocodiles, piranhas, giant anteaters, blue hyacinth macaws, cougars, capybaras, toucans, monkeys, giant river otters, anacondas, iguanas and much more.


Original Highlight

If you don't mind flying in small light aircraft, then the journey by private charter is quite simply amazing - truly vast landscapes stretch on and on beneath you. It also beats the alternative four hour road transfer hands down.

A note on price

Brazil is the most expensive country in South America to visit. Unfortunately, it doesn’t represent great value for money – but it’s still one of our absolute favourites. A two week itinerary starts from £3,500 per person including flights – but if you’re hoping to cover a lot of ground, expect to pay a lot more. Learn more about our pricing
