Pantanal

It reminds you of the Okavango in southern Africa. It is as extraordinary and as spectacular, in its own way, as the Great Barrier Reef. It is the immense river delta, unlike no other: the Pantanal, which extends from central-western Brazil,  through eastern Bolivia and to eastern Paraguay. With its extraordinarily concentrated and diverse flora and fauna, and a landscape spanning a variety of ecological sub-regions, the Pantanal stands as one of the world’s great natural wonders.
