As a naturalist and wildlife photographer the Pantanal is one of my favourite places. Decades ago I surveyed Hyacinth Macaw nest both in South and Northen. Then I guided some very cool people. That included the famous Alan Dean Foster (author of Startrek, Starwars, Alien...) whose dream was swmming with Giant Otter and it came true. He dedicated Drowning World to me, Isn't nice.....
The last two times I visited Northern Pantanal we saw 23 Jaguars in 15 days. Last September I went with Bryan Hutchings only for two full days and the pictures you see here are a result of those days...of course there are a lot more. His lenses missed the Jaguar, my eyes not.
I suggest a five day trip and I gurantee an amazing time and Jaguars of course
