The Pantanal has some 40 specialty bird species and several Brazilian endemics, including Hyacinth Macaw, Greater Rhea, Bare-faced Curassow, Mato Grosso Antbird, Chestnut-bellied Guan and much more.


Besides seeing 200 plus bird species, everyone enjoys seeing Capybara, Giant Anteater, Silvery Marmoset, Black Howler Monkey and other Pantanal wildlife. You will also enjoy wonderful food, driving down the Transpantaneira, Anacondas, and the Brazilian cowboy life style.
