Pantanal Ecological Expedition
In Spanish and Portuguese the word Pantanal (pantano) mean's swamp, but in this case it is a huge wetland in the centre of South America. The Pantanal covers 230,000 sq km's, of which 130,000 sq km's are in Brazil with the remainder being shared between Paraguay and Bolivia. The Brazilian Pantanal is split between two province's; Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul, with the latter only being formed in the 1970's from the original Mato Grosso State. It is said that the Pantanal has the largest concentration of fauna in the world but it still comes down to luck for what you will get to see.
From Campo Grande or Bonito you will head out onto a 2 night, 3 day excursion into the largest inland wetland in the world, a land of hearty people and considerable visable wildlife. The trip enters the Pantanal from the Mato Grosso do Sul Province, in the southern part of the Brazillian Pantanal.
