About the Pantanal:
The Pantanal is the world's largest freshwater floodplain, with an area of more than 200,000 km2, comparable in size with countries like Great Britain. Although the Pantanal also extends into Bolivia and Paraguay, over 70% of it is in Brazilian territory. The Pantanal has been declared UNESCO World Nature Heritage site and named Pantanal National Park & Biosphere Reserve by the Brazilian government. Visitors to the Pantanal will appreciate the area's unique ecosystem which stands out for its extraordinary biodiversity and plentiful opportunities to observe wildlife.
The extraordinary biodiversity of the Pantanal includes around 660 species of bird, 100 species of mammal, 160 species of reptile, 40 species of amphibian, over 260 species of fish and unknown numbers of insect species, among which were identified over a thousand different butterflies. The Pantanal is one of the last refuges for a large variety of mammals that were once found in abundance scattered throughout South America such as the jaguar, the puma, the ocelot, the manned wolf, the tapir, the anteater, the giant otter, the capybara and many others.
