Pantanal means marshland. It encompasses an ecological paradise of around 240 000 km2 with a rich and varied flora & fauna set on an unspoiled fluvial landscape. Although the Amazon is more famous, the Pantanal is a better place to see wildlife. It is flat and there are large, wide open spaces, making wildlife more visible and easier to hear. The Pantanal has one of the greatest fauna & flora in the world.
Flora and Fauna
More than 650 species of birds permanently live in this unique natural paradise â?? more species than in the whole of Europe. From March around 120 species migrate here to breed, and every year ornithologists discover new types. The best known examples are toucans, the red-fronted and hyacinth macaws, the Tujuju or Jaburu storks, as the symbols of the Pantanal. You can get the chance to listen to the delightful birdsongs and observe the many splendid species. The best time to see birds is between March and October.
More than 80 different mammals live here; the best known is the jaguar. It is the worldâ??s third-largest predator. The puma, the second smallest big (email: hidden)s in the Pantanal too.
