The main focus of this unforgettable experience is the sighting of the majestic Jaguars in their natural habitat, the Pantanal. This immense alluvial plain extends for about 230,000 km2, covering parts of Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay. In addition to the Jaguars, the absolute protagonists of the trip, it will be possible to spot other incredible animal species, including capybaras, caimans, monkeys, pumas and tapirs, over 600 species of birds and many species of fish, including the feared piraña.
The tour will depart from the airport or from the Cuiabà hotel. It is advisable to arrive early in the morning, no later than 11.00. An early arrival is preferable, as the transfer from Cuiabà to Poconé takes about an hour and a half (100 km). From the Pantanal “capital”, Poconè, born 230 years ago thanks to a gold rush that is not over yet, as evidenced by the mountains of earth sifted by hand by prospectors. The itinerary will continue on the Transpantaneira for 147 km towards Porte Jofre. Since it is a dirt road, the drive will take about 3.5-4 hours. During the journey on the Transpantaneira 122 bridges will be crossed along a completely flat landscape; most of which are still made of wool (in 2016 the government started replacing some of the bridges with new concrete ones). During the whole journey it will be possible to see many wild animals and particular bird species as the Transpantaneira road runs through the heart of the Pantanal. With a little luck it will be possible to see animals such as the giant anteater, or not impossible, the Jaguar, the feline with the most powerful bite in the world.
