The Pantanal

August 3, 2018 – March 12, 2018

The Pantanal is situated in the middle of South America and is the world’s largest wetland and is host to an enormous amount of wildlife.  During the dry season, when we run this trip, the water disappears fast creating a huge savanna with scattered water holes that become amazing concentrations of birds and other wildlife.  The habitat isn’t the most diverse so this isn’t a place where one would expect to build a huge list of sighted species but what is present is generally present in large numbers making it a paradise for photographers. 


If you are the type of person who is interested in getting some really nice photos of birds and other wildlife then this is the trip for you.  We will have many opportunities to really spend time watching for great photo opportunities and staying with situations to get hose photos that tell a story.  This is certainly a trip that will allow you to build you photographic skills.


Of all the trips we run, the Pantanal trip is the one that offers the most opportunities to photograph mammals.  On our past trips to the area we have photographed Jaguar, Brazilian Tapir, Crab-eating Fox, Giant Anteater, Southern Tamandua, Marsh Deer, Red Brocket Deer, Gray Brocket Deer, Giant River Otter, Capybara, Seven-banded Armadillo, Tufted Capuchin Monkey, Black Howler Monkey, Azara’s Agouti and more.  You never know what we might encounter.
