The best time to see jaguars in the Pantanal
The very best time to come is July to October, though sometimes June and November can bring sightings too.
Planning a jaguar safari
You could simply come for a week and focus specifically on jaguars, but for most people a jaguar safari in the Brazilian Pantanal is almost always arranged as part of a longer trip due to the distances and expense to get to that region. Talk to us about what kind of trip you’re looking for and we will make it perfect for you.
We had 12 separate sightings of jaguars in the Pantanal, including a mother a two cubs swimming across the river.
