Our Pantanal tours are designed to experience the abundance of wildlife the Pantanal has to offer. Visiting the best and remote wildlife locations in the largest wetland of the world. The home of iconic wildlife species such as the jaguar, tapir, giant anteater, southern tamandua, ocelot, hyacinth macaw, blue-and yellow macaw, giant river otter and many more species to enjoy.
During a Pantanal tour we look for wildlife on foot, by car, boat and even offer exploration on horseback (optional). At night we explore by car using a spotting light to look for elusive and nocturnal species.
All our tours can be tailored to your specific preferences. We offer Pantanal tours with a minimum stay of 5-days.
Besides wildlife tours we offer dedicated jaguar tours as well. Photography is our core specialism. Our guides are trained to spot wildlife, read behaviour and position our clients in the best spot to capture the image of a lifetime. Our guides have extended experience working with professional photographers from across the world.
We work with some of the best guides in the Pantanal. Guides, who grew up and still live in the Pantanal. Our guides are proud to share their traditions and knowledge about the Pantanal with you.
Explore the Pantanal in small groups, maximum 6-persons hosted by experienced local guides keen to show you the wonders of the Pantanal. Our group tours take you to multiple lodges with excellent wildlife viewing opportunities. Each day we have outings in the morning, afternoon and at some locations a night drive as well.
During our group tours we have great opportunities to encounter an abundance of bird- and wildlife, including cats like the ocelot and the jaguar. All tours start from the city of Cuiaba, Mato Grosso.
We offer multiple starting dates for our group tours from June until November.
All tours are easy and not demanding in terms of heavy physical activity.
Besides small group (6-persons) and private Pantanal tours we offer special Pantanal photo tours as well. The Pantanal photo tours are co-guided by a seasoned and passionate photographer. The groups are limited to 4 guests and we focus on photography during the tour. That includes early outings and late returns to capture wildlife during the best times of the day.
Our photographer guide is there to show photography tips & trics both out in the field and at the lodge when reviewing and editing your images.
