A Wildlife Paradise The Pantanal In Brazil A Vast Wetland Teeming With Life

A very chilled out jaguar watches us watching him, The Pantanal a very special place.

There are some places on earth that are so magical and exciting that it is a dream come true to visit them. One such place is the vast wetland known as The Pantanal in Brazil. Sadly this wonderful country has its problems at present but we hope to be able to return and enjoy the mind-blowing wildlife again. We have been privileged to visit this wildlife paradise three times and each time it has been a wrench to leave and we long to return. The wildlife watching really is that good. The huge numbers of birds here are breath-taking and add to them some very special mammals, lovely lodges, great food and friendly locals and yes paradise found! Here are a few images from our most recent trip to give you a tiny glimpse of what The Pantanal has to offer.

The jaguars in The Pantanal are the largest in the world and so beautiful.

Though like all big cats they do take a lot of their life pretty easy.

A lot of our time in The Pantanal is spent messing about on the river, wonderful.

You never know what might pop up next - maybe a giant river otter come to check us out.

Of course amazing birds and wildlife on dry land too - Hyacinth Macaws huge parrots.

So good to enjoy watching one of our all time favourite birds - Toco Toucan.

The Pantanal sunsets are something else too here with added Jabiru Stork.
