Absolutely fantastic! The wildlife was so abundant. There was a wide range of wildlife and not just Jaguars. We were spotting new species right from the moment we arrived in the Pantanal to the minute we left!
It has been an amazing experience and we loved every minute of it. Everything was perfect, the wildlife, the accommodation and the guide (Paulo Ribeiro).
Paulo was an excellent leader. He went more than the extra mile to ensure we saw as many species as possible. He also did his utmost to enable us all to see it. He was at all times helpful and kind. His knowledge of the area and the whereabouts of seeing things superb.
Paulo was an excellent tour leader and a very knowledgeable wildlife guide. I am sure we wouldn't have made half the sightings without him. He was also very well organised, proactive and helpful. Thoroughly likeable - he played a big part in making our trip such a success. We were exceptionally lucky in our sightings- 10 jaguar sightings, with 6 different jaguars (and on some occasions these were for longer than an hour at a time), multiple rare birds, tapirs, river otters, ocelots etc. More than this, though, I thought the trip was well balanced - there was plenty for the birders but not at the expense of those of us who were there for the mammals, photography etc. Again, I cannot speak highly enough of Paulo and the contribution he made to ensuring every member of the group had a good holiday - he was very sensitive to individuals without sacrificing the overall goals of the group. The whole trip was one big highlight.
