'ONÇA PINTADA', PANTHERA OR JAGUAR

This is the largest cat in Americas and the 3rd in the world, after Tiger and Lion. With up to 100 kg this carnivore can be found easier along the years at North Pantanal while the preservation is taken place on cattle production and agriculture. From end june to early November are the best season to see them since it is the dry season so they need to be closer to the river banks to get water. Unique experience to watch them in the Nature.

Cuiabá

Cuiabá is a big city on the banks of the River Cuiabá and the capital of the central Brazilian state Mato Grosso. It's known as a gateway to the wetlands of the Northern Pantanal.

Pantanal

Brazil is home to the largest wetlands in the world and an ideal location for eco-tourism. If you always dreamed of going on Safari, Brazil's Pantanal will enchant you. The landscape is closer to an African plain than one would imagine and often resembles the Savannah when dry. However, water abounds, making it easy to explore multiple waterfalls, lagoons, caves, caverns, and rivers. As the cycles of dry and wet seasons play tug of war each year, they create a territory full of natural beauty. This region is perfect for enjoying untouched nature from beautiful meadows, leafy marshes, endless forest, and winding rivers.
