Brazilian State of Mato Grosso


The Pantanal is a living zoo and stunning destination best explored by small River boat.

A natural region encompassing the world’s largest tropical wetland area. It is located mostly within the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso do Sul, but it extends into Mato Grosso and portions of Bolivia and Paraguay. Various sub regional ecosystems exist, each with distinct hydrological, geological and ecological characteristics. 

Spending time in the Pantanal truly is a unique experience. The local fauna isn’t limited to birdlife. Some of the Pantanal’s most lively inhabitants include jaguars, giant anteaters, piranha, howler and capuchin monkeys, and green anacondas—the world’s largest snakes, which prowl swamps and lazy rivers in search of wild pigs, deer, and other prey.


Regarding accommodation, not only are the lodges sure to educate you greatly about life in the Pantanal (many lodges are still operating ranches, giving you an authentic and unfiltered glimpse into Pantaneiro cowboy experience), but they also ensure you are put in the best conditions possible for the best wildlife sightings.
