A place with macaws, parrots, and wildlife galore...

Brazil's vast Pantanal is region of seasonally flooded grasslands interspersed with patches of woodland. It is an amazingly rich area for bird life and wildlife in general. A birding highlight of a visit to the Pantanal is the wonderful variety of parrots and their kin to be seen, from beauties like this Yellow-collared Macaw, photographed by guide Marcelo Barreiros, to magnificent Hyacinth Macaws (and Scarlets) to Turquoise-fronted Parrots, Nanday and Monk parakeets, and much more.

But it's not just parrots and macaws...a first day's birding will reveal an amazing diversity of water birds of all types as well as a fabulous array of smaller species. And the Pantanal offers a wildlife experience reminiscent of East Africa...there are larger creatures possible, from Greater Rheas and Giant Anteaters to myriad caiman, anacondas, and, most sought-after of all, Jaguar!

We visit the Pantanal on several of our 15 distinct Brazil itineraries:
