South America Panorama

Having just arrived back from our South America trip, we thought we drop you a line to tell you how much we enjoyed our journey. Everything was as we expected and more!! The itenery itself was outstanding, the scenery and sites ... well photos just don't do it justice! The hotels we stayed in where better than we expected ... the tour guides where fantastic and very knowledgable. The tours and all the pick ups and transfers where spot on. There is now doubt in our mind to use World Expeditions again soon, it is now just a matter of finding the time (and of course a little money). Antarctica looks great!!!

Wildlife of the Pantanal

The Pantanal is a vast wetland area with an incredible diversity of flora and fauna. We will explore this spectacular region on foot, 4WD, boat or canoe. Given the Pantanal's open landscape, wildlife viewing is usually very rewarding with possible sightings of alligators, capybaras, otters, monkeys, macaws, cormorants, ibis, parrots and toucans.

traveller reviews

The Pantanal is a huge wetlands area in the heart of South America. It is not easily accessible as access is via a 2 hour flight from one of Brazil's major cities followed by a 3 hour road transfer on poor roads.The water level in the wetlands drops 4 metres from the end of the wet season and it is a wildlife paradise. We saw over 40 different birds in 3 days and our guide was amazing at spotting them and identifying them. We had fun fishing for piraņa and the lodge cooked them in soup for us! Most trips were by flat-bottomed boat trips skippered by great local boatmen who also found us wonderful sunsets. We also had some walks, horse riding and a night safari although this was a very rough ride. This tour based at Posada Rio Mutum is worth including in your travel to Brazil.
