Family, friends and regular readers will know that we began our round the world trip in South America. Among the large number of amazing things we got up to, one of our favourites was a Brazilian Pantanal tour. Until now we have only written one post about the Pantanal, being a #PhotoFriday post. We would love others to share the fantastic experience we had. The following two posts will therefore be a review of the tour followed by an overview of the activities together with some great photos.

Whilst planning our trip, we read various travel blogs and checked out backpacker tourist routes. We discovered an opportunity on our route through Brazil to Bolivia that we couldn’t pass up.
The Pantanal, from the Portuguese word “pãntano” meaning wetland, is a massive, (140,000-195,000 sq km) natural land area, encompassing the world’s largest wetlands. It is a veritable cornucopia of wildlife just waiting to be discovered, whilst indulging in some fun activities!
