The State Park occupies a vast tract of land in the hearth of Pantanal. It’s a huge reserve in the region and home of the majestic Jaguar the most special water-birds. It’s a single best place to do boat trips, birdwatching and photography.

Experience the Jaguar Safari in the principal rivers of Mato Grosso.
Mornings start early in the Pantanal; breakfast early and leaving as soon as possible for better photo shoot opportunities (You can adjust the time of breakfast with your guide).

We will leave the hotel in a motorboat looking for jaguars in the tributaries of the Meeting of the Waters State Park, this is one of the three largest protect areas in Pantanal.

With a high density of jaguar prey, including caiman and large groups of
capybara, this location offers you the best chance to see a jaguar attack.

When the water of the Pantanal is at its lowest, from June till November, and the banks of the rivers become exposed, jaguars ar often found resting and hunting along the
river’s edge. We will also encounter other interesting wildlife, including Giant Otters, Neotropical Otters, Caimans, Capibaras, Tapirs, Yellow Anaconda, Howler Monkeys, Capuchin Monkeys and many birds species including the magnificent Touco Toucan and the endangered Hyacinth Macaw. Often we enjoy our lunch watching the jaguar.
Don’t worry, there will be plenty of opportunities to take a safe bathroom breaks on the beach as necessary.

We believe that you are looking for the best Pantanal jaguar
