South American Safaris

JAGUARS in the Pantanal

This safari is a perfect combination of mammal and bird watching combining the adrenalin rush of searching by speedboat for the elusive Jaguar whilst taking in the sight and songs of a fabulous selection of exotic birds including Hyacinth macaws, golden-collared macaw, Mato Grosso antbird, white-lored spinetail, fawn-breasted wren, jabiru, large-billed antwren, helmeted manakin, great rufous woodcreeper, plumbeous ibis, rufous casiornis, long-tailed ground-dove, pale-crested woodpecker, Ringed Kingfisher, and Amazon Kingfisher.

This Safari takes you in comfort to the wildest places to marvel at the most spectacular wildlife of South America.

Jaguars in the Pantanal weigh up to 350 pounds (150 kilos), while the same species in the Amazon or Central America reaches only 160 pounds (73 kilos). Normally almost impossible to see in Belize or Amazon, at our site in north-central Pantanal, a "Jaguar Miracle" has occurred. Since 2000, strict protection from hunting and abundant Caimans and Capybaras on the riverbanks have made Jaguars uniquely easy to see on 95% of the days in the low water season, often for several hours per day. Jaguars have been shown to guests more than 3,500 times since we first guaranteed Jaguar viewing in 2006.

NOTES: Please schedule an early morning flight to reach Cuiabá. The group will leave no later than 2.30 pm from Cuiabá. If your flight is delayed, you will have to pay for private transport to SWP, as it is not fair for late flights to reduce the Pantanal time of on-time guests. The return from SWP to Cuiabá is around 6.30 am, which is ideal for flights leaving Cuiabá at or after 11:00 am. Guests with later flights are welcome to relax in the air-conditioned SouthWild offices once and use free WIFI. The office is only a 6-min walk or 3-min drive from the airport.
