Expedition Leader Zapa reports:

"July in Brazil's Pantanal is good for spotting mammals. It is still green, even during this dry season, so our group saw many cool things.

"This week guests saw a jaguar near our truck during a spotlighting safari (pictured right), a tapir swimming past our canoes and an anteater taking a bath!"

Thanks in large part to the work of the Jaguar Conservation Project, which IE supports, our guests are reporting more sightings of the elusive jaguar during their Pantanal tours.
