Brazil wildlife tour in the northern Pantanal, with small group boat safaris (maximum of 8 clients in a boat designed for 12) on the Cuiaba River providing incredible Jaguar sightings. The Cuiaba River (access from Porto Jofre Lodge) is at the end of the Transpantaneira road and the number one destination in the world for seeing wild jaguars. Some incredible photos of mating jaguars, large males hunting caiman and jaguars enjoying the water like no other big cat; have all been photographed or filmed in this beautiful location. However to increase our chances further we have factored in the last 9 years iof organising jaguar safaris here and chosen dates in early November to increase sightings. Many tours travel to the Pantanal in August and September which are excellent months for overall diversity and jaguars, but the hear of October and early November and the lower river levels, all contribute to spectacular encounters with the largest cat in the Americas. 'Hi Allan, back safe and sound. Thanks for a fantastic trip, managed to see so much. Bonded with a tapir, managed to see Giant anteaters, and had 20 jaguar encounters, with a dozen or so quality ones, and a couple of amazing ones' - travelled end of October 2015.
