  • Join Mark Brazil on this comprehensive itinerary that explores the northern and southern regions of the Pantanal, truly one of the most spectacular areas for wildlife in the New World.
  • Search for Brazil’s iconic wildlife—caiman, capybara, howler monkeys, marmosets, giant river otters, and our ultimate goal—the elusive jaguar.
  • Discover a huge variety of large and colorful birds on this South American adventure travel tour, including: macaws, ibis, storks, curassows, spoonbills, and a wide range of birds of prey.
