The Jaguar Safari

Spend time observing the wildlife of the Pantanal including cruise along the Cuiaba River to spot magnificent jaguars

7 days from £4700pp plus international flights.

A wonderful opportunity to venture deep into Brazil's Pantanal with excellent chances of seeing jaguars.

  • Watch jaguars lazing on the banks of the Cuiaba River
  • See families of giant otters, birds and monkeys
  • Hike forest trails in the Pantanal
  • View the scenery from an observation tower
  • The chance to go horse riding through fields and forests

This trip is ideal for lovers of wildlife and nature. Come and search for jaguars and giant otters in the wild!

The highlight will undoubtedly be the days spent on the river seeking out jaguars, but you also have time to take forest hikes, climb observation towers and go horse riding through fields and forest. the Jaguar Flotel is on the Cuiaba River about an hour away from Porto Joffre. It is in the heart of jaguar-spotting territory and the odds of seeing jaguars here at very high!

It's not just jaguars though. Giant otters are commonly seen here and they too are usually very hard to find, so this is a real treat. In addition you'll see capybaras, caiman, the rare hyacinth macaws and hopefully many other species.

You will have a dedicated English-speaking guide throughout the trip, helping you make the very best of your time in this unique environment.

With this trip you have a choice of whether to join a group set departure, or if you prefer we can arrange this trip for you as a private departure on whatever date you like.

On the whole, the best time to do this trip is between July and September, though the months either side can also be good too.
