Bespoke Jaguar safari - If you talk to the older Pantaneiro Cowboys about Jaguars, they will tell you that back in the eighties/early nineties, they would be lucky to see a Jaguar once a month; and then that was probably on a hunt, when they suspected this magnificent big cat of taking one of their cows. How times have changed; now sightings on the Cuiaba River are almost daily. The increase in their numbers is a consequence of many ranch owners moving into eco tourism, as well as a few well respected NGO’s such as the World Conservation Society buying up land around the Cuiaba River to protect resident Jaguar territories. Now a trip along the famous Transpaneria road from Cuiaba to Porto Jofre is one of the most exhilarating and exciting wildlife safaris in the world - with many clients recording over 30 mammal species in a single trip during their Jagaur safari
