Small group Jaguar safari in the northern Pantanal, with small group boat safaris (maximum of 6 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 of organising jaguar safaris here and chosen dates in October 2020 to maximise sightings; when dry conditions and 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'
