Jaguar safari in the south and north Pantanal.

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.

We have made this Pantanal jaguar tour even more thrilling and action packed by adding on a visit to a remote Pousada in the south Pantana. Here, again with your own private naturaliast, you will enjoy boat safaris, walking safaris and vehicle safaris looking for the resident wildlife. 'We saw lots of wildlife including 17 sightings of giant anteaters, two of which were very close encounters on foot-awesome! Others included giant river otters, bush pigs, peccaries, 6 and 9-banded armadillos, capybara and caiman.The bird life was amazing both the close sightings and sheer numbers of different species seen​' K Reed, October 2017
