Southern Pantanal

Brazil, Pantanal and Central West,

Southern Pantanal

Accessed from Corumba and Campo Grande in Mato Grosso do Sul state, the southern Pantanal has an extensive river system including the Miranda, Aquidauana and Negro Rivers (tributaries of the Rio Paraguay) and a vast interior of cattle ranches extending to hundreds of thousands of acres each. Compared to the north, the south remains wetter for longer and the animals migrate out of the area during the wet season. Visiting this area should reveal the full panoply of Pantanal wildlife, including the best chances of seeing giant anteaters and armadillo, as well as rhea, giant otter, puma and jaguar.
