Pantanal Ride

Ride Overview

This trip offers exciting horseback riding in the Pantanal region of Brazil. The biggest wetland in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2000, the Pantanal is the South American version of Africa’s best wildlife reserves. One of the top locations anywhere in the world for wildlife viewing, it is home to an array of animals such as jaguar, tapir, caiman, howler monkey, giant anteater and giant otter. The region is a rich resource for the wildlife enthusiast, as well as the bird watcher, who could spot heron, egret, ibis, stork, red and yellow macaw, toucan and parrot – to name a few! Make yourself at home in the hospitality of the two fazendas, or ranches, where you stay, with a first night in Campo Grande and a middle night in a unique and comfortable hammock outpost. The fazenda stays allow you to experience the rich culture of the region as you travel through two distinct areas of this fascinating part of the world.
