Dedicated Jaguar Watching Holidays

The Jaguar is South America’s most iconic cat. Secretive and stunningly beautiful, seeing one of them surely ranks among the world’s top 10 wildlife experiences. Naturetrek offers dedicated Jaguar holidays to Brazil of varying lengths.  Naturetrek groups have also seen these stunning wild cats in Tambopata, Peru (Macaws and Machu Picchu) and in the Iwokrama rainforest in Guyana (Guyana - A Timeless Paradise), although sightings in both localities are less frequent than in the Pantanal.

 

Our Jaguar holidays specialist recommends...

If you want a holiday dedicated to looking for these magnificent cats, you can’t do any better than Naturetrek’s ‘Brazil – Just Jaguars!’ tour. We’ve had some excellent sightings – sitting beside a river, on a track and even swimming. For those who want to stay longer and explore a greater variety of habitats I’d recommend our 17-day ‘‘Brazilian Pantanal & IguazuFalls’ tour, though you’ll see a host of fantastic wildlife on both trips!

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Jaguars HOLIDAYS

I think the success of this tour was down to Jose being such a brilliant leader in every area. He knew so much about all of the wildlife and culture of Brazil. Nothing was too much trouble, he did his best to make sure that we saw as much as possible and the wildlife performed very well.

Brazil - Just Jaguars!

Paulo was great, he was always polite and friendly, professional and hard working, really trying hard to find any species and give us the best experience on the trip. A great leader to have.
Having an overall interest in both the wildlife and culture of Peru, we especially enjoyed the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu. Nick and Juan ensured we had a fabulous and unforgettable experience. Please pass on our genuine thanks and best wishes.
