Pantanal Jaguar Camp
At the end of the Transpantaneira Road winds a labyrinth of rivers on which our specially-trained trackers and boatmen have shown Jaguars to guests 397 times in 220 guest days in the 2007 and 2008 dry seasons. The Pantanal Jaguar Camp is on the forested banks of the Three Brothers River in the very heart of the 270,000 acre Meeting of the Waters State Park.
Pantanal Jaguar Camp & Jaguar Park
Most of the Jaguars in this huge “Jaguar park” appear over and over again, and we now have both a complete face dossier of the 15 most frequently seen cats and a growing number of data points that allow us to map the overlapping territories of these mighty creatures.
Pantanal Jaguar Camp – Jaguar Flotel
The Jaguar Flotel is anchored 2.5 kilometers downstream from the mouth of the Three Brothers River, thus permitting our special scout boat system to produce an average of 1.5 Jaguar sightings per day. In 2011, all guests who spent 3 nights and 4 days at the Flotel saw Jaguars and Giant Otters.
Built in 2010, the Jaguar Flotel is an air-conditioned, floating hotel with 10 double-occupancy rooms with split air conditioners and en suite bathrooms with flush toilets and neverending, hot showers. The Flotel’s large, air-conditioned dining room/lounge has picture windows that look out over the wild Pantanal on the mighty Cuiabá River. Additionally, guests can relax in hammocks, sunbathe, or enjoy breakfast, lunch, or afterdinner drinks on the Flotel’s expansive, partially-roofed top deck. At night, the flotel is powered by a special night generator located 40 m away on the Jaguar Tug Boat, thus eliminating night time noise.
The Pantanal’s Big Three
The “big three” mammals of the Pantanal wetlands are the jaguar, the tapir, and the 70-pound (30-kilo), pack-living giant otter. Our itineraries offer very high probabilities of seeing all three on a 6-night stay at Pantanal Wildife Center and Pantanal Jaguar Camp.
Giant otters normally are seen at PWC during the June through November period, but also are seen on most days at JRC. A number of the 3-4 giant otter groups that live near our two lodges are quite habituated, permitting superb photo opportunities of these hyperactive, entertaining “river wolves”. No other lodges in South America can offer almost certain viewing of the Big Three of the South American rainforests.
