Few places in the world are better for viewing wildlife than the Pantanal wetlands, a mosaic of lakes, rivers and forest.

Each year the landscape of the Pantanal is transformed into a watery wonderland as water levels rise to flood the lowland savannahs and wetlands, this creates vast areas of shallow lagoon with great open expanses and fantastic opportunities to watch the magnificent array of animals. The lack of dense vegetation offers one of the best bird and wild-life spotting experiences imaginable, with the various habitats of the Pantanal creating an extremely rich and varied ecosystem.

There are thousands of exotic plants and hundreds of species of birds, mammals, fish and reptiles calling the Pantanal their home and it is an important rest-stop migratory birds. The dry season brings storks to shallow waters to feed to a place that boasts a land area larger than England.
