Our recent group trip to the Pantanal has just returned having seen 3 jaguars.

Our local guide Munir called us with the news and was very excited by such a prolific tally! “We have seen jaguars, one, two and three! This is not a lie!!”

Tourism in the Pantanal is still in its infancy and consequently accommodation has a long way to go before it matches the kind of camps one can enjoy in Africa. For lovers of big cats however, seeing jaguars from a river boat in the Pantanal is a real privilege and one that is only made possible through local entrepreneurs realising the value of their land through responsible tourism.
