  • Brazil Wonders Extension Pantanal – 4 Days
  • (#19351)

A huge lowland plain, it is entirely overgrown by lush vegetation dotted by thousands of multi-colored flowers, which bloom during the rainy season (Dec to March). It shelters innumerable rivers and crystal-clear lakes. Along their shores are rare species of animals such as jaguars, peccaries, bobcats, wild boars, gray teals, partridges and herons, which live in total and undisturbed harmony. No experience is more rewarding than a “safari” into this privileged wilderness to photograph the countless birds and animals silhouetted against the brilliant backdrop of foliage and blue skies. In the Pantanal visitors will find an area of 77,220 square miles (nearly equal in size to the country of Romania) full of life and nature, much of it untouched by the hand of man.
