around 130,000 square kilometers in Brazil, Pantanal
is one of the most unique environments in the world.
Home to abundant animal life and a natural breeding
ground for a great number of birds, reptiles, fish and
other animals for the delight of wildlife watchers and
photographers. Although often described as such, the
Pantanal is not a swamp, but a vast low-lying plain
that each year is flooded by the waters of the Paraguay
annual cycle begins with the summer rains in November
and December, and the peak flood season is between January
and March. As the waters recede the fish are trapped,
providing feeding areas for the wildlife. The Pantanal
is accessible throughout the year, but the best time
to go is between April and October.
