​We developed Three different types of Jaguar Tour in the Pantanal National Park for you. The first jaguar trip pantanal is a basic package. We will visit two different lodges. We begin by spending the first night in a lodge on a farm halfway along the Transpantaneira. On the next day we will drive down the road to the very end and spend two more nights in Porto Jofre making a full day of jaguar spotting. After that we go back to the lodge where we started for one more night.

Boat drives.

Nevertheless, the boat drives in search of Jaguars start early. then jaguars start hunting early in the morning. With this in mind, we have breakfast at 6:00 am, subsequently, at 7:00 am we go for the first outting until 11:00 am. After that, we return for lunch. However at 02:00 pm, we go again for the second outting of the jaguar tour until 06:00 pm. Finally, the tourist has dinner at 7:00 pm. In order to get fit for the next day, we go to rest early.

On the next day we drive to the end of the road and spend four nights in Porto Jofre making three full days of jaguar spotting. After this we go back to a different lodge along the Transpantaneira.

Jaguar tour Behavior.

It is very interesting to observe the behavior of these cats as they hunt. Because they are at the top of the food chain in our biome and hunt mainly capybaras and alligators. We often find jaguars lying down resting on the banks of rivers. They are already well used to tourist boats. That's why it's very easy to photograph them. Enjoy !!!


Firstly, I suggest that. Tourists look for a local tourism agency to take this tour. Because, this is an activity that needs trained professionals to develop a great experience. Secondly, it is necessary to reach Cuiabá. After that, the visitor will have to go to Poconé. Where Transpantaneira begins. It is important to use a tall car. For example, Vans and pick ups to access to Porto Jofre. There are 150 kilometers of dirt road. Sometimes with lots of ribs and other times with a lot of slippery mud and even puddles. Arriving in Porto Jofre. Tourists have some possibilities for accommodation and boat trips, lasting 4 to 8 hours a day.

Undoubtedly, the jaguar tour is the most exciting trip, visitors can make in Brazil. In the hope that, this activity will save this beautiful creatures, from the rage of the cattle farmers. In the meantime, we invite you to do this interesting tour in the swamps of Pantanal, In the middle west of our country. As a matter of fact, the tourism is the only hope for locals to maintain a sustainable activity. In light of, keeping a healthy relationship between humans and nature, we contribute to keep tourism with resposability.
