Brazil travel: North Pantanal
The Pantanal, one of the most important inland wetlands in the world, is located in the Brazilian states of Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and can boast an impressive biodiversity in terms of flora and fauna. The North Pantanal occupies only one third of the total area of 230.000 square kilometres. This makes it less crowed and partly cheaper than in the south. Through strict conservation you can experience authentic natural spectacles. During floods, the dry landscape turns into an impressive wetland full of natural pools, swamps and lagoons. On the animal safari you can, with luck spot anacondas, kaimans, giant anteaters, monkeys, giant otters, capybaras, ocelots and marsh deers. Additionally, around 650 different species of birds such as storks and parrots, 80 species of mammals, numerous reptiles, rare plants and insects awaits the visitors.
