Pantanal - a dream for all bird lovers and wildlife photographers.
The Pantanal is an enormous wilderness located in the heart of South America encompassing the World’s largest tropical seasonal flooded wetland. Although it is shared by Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay, more than 75 % of the Pantanal floodplain is located in the Brazilian states of Mato Grosso do Sul, covering an area of more than 138,183 square kilometers. Though the Amazon rainforest is well known worldwide due to its diversity, the Pantanal offers more number of visible species and individuals and is one of the most productive wildlife habitats on Earth in terms of photogenic wildlife! Iconic species such as spectacled caimans, capybaras, anacondas, ocelots, rheas, marsh deer, crab-eating raccoons, tapirs, peccaries, giant otters, jabirus, toucans, flocks of numerous species of parrots, parakeets, ibises, plus giant anteaters and jaguars, among many others, transform the Pantanal in a dream for any demanding wildlife photographer!
