Brazil wildlife holidays

Wildlife Trails Brazil wildlife holidays cover 4 distinct  bispheres in this huge and wildlife diverse South American country. We take our clients to the largest wetland in the world, the Pantanal, in search of Wild Jaguars, Giant river otters and Giant Anteaters. We also visit the high cerrado located further north and look for Giant Anteaters and Maned Wolf in national parks like Canastra. There remain two key rainforest habitats in Brazil, the vast Amazon forest which needs wildlife visitors, scientists and activists more than ever and the ever shrinking Atlantic rainforest, home to endangered primates like Wooly spider monkeys and Golden Lion Tamarins.

Any research on the internet will show you that the northern Pantanal has become a real hotspot for viewing Jaguars, but it is important to know which areas are likely to be productive and to travel with a guide who knows the area intimately and is well connected – that is where Wildlife Trails come in; with our many years of experience in this area. There are several different types of major habitats accessed by using the Transpantaneira road and you will have quality time in two of them. In particular, the Cuiaba River (and its tributaries) where approximately 90% of the jaguar sightings take place during boat safaris. You cannot visit this area for just one day and expect to see Jaguars and all our Brazil jaguar safaris include at least 4 full days on the river.

For your Pantanal jaguar safari we explore different types of major habitats accessed by using the Transpantaneira road and you will have quality time in two of them. In particular, the Cuiaba... Read More
