Jaguar safaris

The Northern Pantanal has the highest density of jaguars in the Americas, making it the best place to see and photograph jaguars. We offer jaguar safaris designed by seasoned photographers for photographers and nature lovers.

We travel in small groups, ensuring plenty of space and attention for all our guests, and we are privileged to work with the most experienced guides and boat drivers the Pantanal has to offer.

All the guides and boat drivers we work with are licensed and have extensive experience in guiding professional photographers and camera crews from around the world. A keen eye for detail combined with extensive experience is what sets us apart. Join us on an unforgettable journey into the Northern Pantanal to come face to face with the jaguar.
