Pantanal

Discover the Wildlife of the Worlds Largest Tropical Wetland

Waters that innundate the Patanal come pouring from the Planalto Highlands. Many rivers flow into the delta, depositing their sediment and slowly causing the ground level to rise. Billions of ‘apple snails’ with periscopic ''snorkels'' break down the vegetations as the water subside

The Patanal is rich and varied from moist tropical plants of the Amazon Rainforest, to savanna plants and semi-arid woodlands. These distinct ecosystems are home to more than 1,000 species of birds, and 300 types of mammal. Many of the species are semi-aquatic due to the seasonally changing landscape: marsh deer and giant river otter thrive here, and so too are endangered maned wolf, bush dog, and South American tapir. Pantanal’s jaguar are said to be larger, stronger, and healthier than any other jaguars on earth, and as the caiman population is in excess of 10 million, the concentration of crocodilians is higher than anywhere else, too.
 
Journeysmiths wills elect a safari lodge where you can explore the landscapes by open vehicle on foot and by boat – staying at the Caiman Ecological Refuge you stand an excellent chance of encountering jaguar.
