Pantanal Holidays

Covering an area of nearly 75,000 square miles, the impressive Pantanal is the world’s largest tropical wetland. The majority of the area lies in Mato Grosso do Sul, which is a Brazillian state. However, due to its humungous size, the Pantanal stretches in Bolivia and Paraguay. The area is known for being biologically diverse and full of different ecosystems.   

Deriving from the Portuguese word “pântano”, the name Pantanal means bog or swamp. Brazilians often refer to the area as planalto, high plain or plateau.

During the rainy season, much of the Pantanal floodplains become submerged. This provides the perfect conditions for different aquatic plants and water-loving animal species.  

The Pantanal is a nature-lover’s dream! There is said to be in the region of 1,000 bird species, 9,000 invertebrates and 300 mammals. The area is crawling with loads of different insects too. Some animal species to look out for are: crowned solitary eagles, giant river otters and jaguars. Make sure you have your eyes peeled because these rare species are an amazing sight.

Other species include howler monkeys, toucans and anacondas. There are also loads of butterflies and flowers everywhere you look. The best time for bird watching is during October and November, but whatever time of year you go, there won’t be a shortage of wildlife.
