He always got me the best shot and knew how to maneuver thru the boats as everyone knows him and his family's legacy in the area. Thanks so much Fabricio!

Travelling in the Pantanal with DJ and Pinta was magical. They were both so knowledgeable and passionate about their craft. Having traveled extensively, this is up there at the top of our wildlife experiences. We are on the older side and were a bit compromised during our trip. DJ and Pinta could not have been more caring and attentive to our needs. We saw everything we anticipated. Pantanal Safaris were brilliant at tailoring our safari to our needs. I would recommend them to anyone. Of course, the Pantanal itself is the real star!

How we work

All tours are unique in it self. Different clients, different preferences.
We offer tailored itineraries designed on your clients personal preferences.

The experience is most important. Therefore we work with small groups (max. 6-persons) and private safaris, to ensure the highest level of service and individual attention for your clients.

However if you plan a larger group we can accomodate. We will use multiple guides, cars and boats to guarantee the best experience in small groups.

Our safaris are planned in 4 steps:

1. Learn about your clients preferences

2. Create a detailed itinerary including daily activities and price (PDF)

3. Refine itinerary on the clients feedback

4. Confirm the tour and provide a confirmation document including all information for the safari and payment instructions.

All clients receive a Pantanal E-book including a Travel checklist, information on vaccinations, visa, flights and background information on the iconic species of the Pantanal.
