Explore Brazil’s famed Pantanal wetland along its maze of channels in the Taiama Reserve, to seek out the elusive jaguar.

This innovative jaguar watching itinerary starts with two nights in a well-appointed ecolodge with first-rate wildlife guides at the northern end of the Pantanal, where you can see dry land fauna and the region's phenomenal birdlife.

You will then spend four nights aboard a comfortable, modern, air-conditioned riverboat with twin-berth cabins that was originally designed for sports fishing. By sleeping on the river you minimise travelling time and maximise the possibility of seeing the reclusive jaguar in its natural habitat.
