Pantanal & Wetlands Tours

A UNESCO World Heritage site, the Pantanal is the largest tropical wetland in the world. Mostly residing in Brazil, the enormous basin receives a massive amount of water from the highlands during the flood season, which dissipates into a landlocked delta. This lush environment attracts countless species of mammals, birds, reptiles and insects.
 
Due to the delta’s wide open spaces, animal spotting in the Pantanal is a lot easier then in the neighbouring Amazon, offering amazing photographic opportunities. Sunsets in this area in particular are simply spectacular.
The Iberia Wetlands in Argentina are the world’s second largest tropical wetland and like their big brother, the Pantanal, offer sensational wildlife viewing opportunities.
 
A Pantanal tour or Iberia Wetlands tour offers a chance to spot many eclectic species of wildlife, such as the Marsh Deer, Giant River Otter, Maned Wolf, Capybara (the world’s biggest rodent), Caiman (small crocodiles) and the unique Tapir, to name a few. The Pantanal is also home to one of the largest Jaguar populations on earth.
Getting around these wetlands you could find yourself in canoes, on horseback, mountain bike or foot. It is the perfect place to get up close and personal with nature.
 
There are also many other smaller wetland areas dotted around Latin America, which attract animal lovers by the droves. So, if animal spotting is your thing, then a Pantanal tour or Iberia tour is for you.
