Sprawling over an estimated 175,000 square kilometres, the vast Pantanal wetlands are Brazil´s top wildlife destination. Much of the Pantanal is a wild and inaccessible place and much of the land is seasonally flooded. Consequently, the Pantanal´s most beautiful reaches, along with the regions most spectacular resident the jaguar, mostly remain hidden from view.
In September this year, the all-inclusive Minas do Pantanal raises anchor and sets out on a unique one-week cruise through four protected wildlife reserves in the heart of the Pantanal. For a select few, this maiden voyage presents a unique opportunity to venture deep into this biodiversity hotspot, with a realistic chance of spotting the elusive jaguar and other game such as giant otters, tapirs, anteaters, caiman, capybara and an astounding array of birdlife.
The Minas do Pantanal is a modern vessel. Five ensuite cabins, an air-conditioned dining room and an observation deck equipped with comfortable sofas guarantee comfort and exclusivity, but it is the daily safari experience (with a focus on Jaguar spotting) that really completes the picture. Daily game viewing (morning and afternoon), under expert guidance, takes place in lighter launches, which are able to navigate much narrower channels and shallower waters. Needless to say, return transfers to Cuiaba are included.
This is a limited offer, and there are only two departure dates in 2018:
