Jaguars of the Pantanal

Tour Details
jaguars of the pantanal photo tour wild eye

Symbolic of strength & courage yet feared like few other creatures on our planet, an encounter with the Jaguar will leave you in utter awe. Whisk yourself away for the adventure of a lifetime in the heart of “Onca” territory on our Jaguars of the Pantanal Photo Tour.

None of the Pantanal’s inhabitants are as sought after as the elusive Jaguar. This exciting Wild Eye Safari is designed to take you into the heart of the spotted cat’s territory as we dedicate nearly 9 days entirely to time with Jaguars. Although finding & photographing Jaguars requires time & patience, you’ll be surprised by the typical regularity of sightings. We will spend entire days (apart from lunch breaks) in search of this striking cat and stand a good chance of not only seeing them, but also of watching them on the move as they explore their territories and go out on the hunt, fascinating first-hand behaviour.

The tour will consist of a small group in the company of a skilled photographic Wild Eye guide, and a local expert guide, ensuring no detail to attention is overlooked & maximum time spent looking for and enjoying the company of these incredible cats is the order of the day. In the company of these experts you’ll be sure to both get the images you’ve dreamed of Jaguars of the Pantanal, as well as learn more about this fascinating wilderness & the striking creatures that inhabit it.
