Wildlife Photography Tour in Pantanal, Brazil
This is an 8-day Pantanal Photography Tour in the Mato Grosso state in southern Brazil. During this leisurely paced wildlife photo tour throughout the Pantanal, expect to see over 400 wildlife species with the possibility to photograph around 100 species.
The Brazilian Pantanal is the world's largest tropical wetland and an enormous piece of the area flooded during the wet season (November through March), permitting the environment to support a high variety of biodiversity.
The Pantanal ecosystem is also thought to be home to 1000 species of birds, 300 species of mammals, and 480 species of reptiles. This high biodiversity makes Pantanal a first-class destination for a Pantanal photography tour, especially for birds and big mammals.
Our photo tour throughout Pantanal focuses on providing guests with the best conditions for wildlife photography by taking them to the best-known spots. Also, our wildlife and photography tour provides you with the best and most highly experienced tour guides in the area.
