My husband-to-be and I will be travelling in Brazil for two and a half months from the end of November, and want to see as much of the country, wildlife, culture and people as possible. We thought we'd head straight to the amazon when we arrived and then explore some of the beaches for a bit.

The pantanal sounds amazing but we'd be there in january or early february - has anyone been there at this time - what was your experience? what did you see/do and is it worth it?

Haven't been there in january, but it being summer I imagine it will be wet. On the upside, the wet season may offer birds and other wildlife that aren't there when it's dry.

hi everyone,

a friend and i are also hoping to visit the pantanal in january next year.

we are hoping to enter overland from bolivia and explore the region for a few days out of corumba before moving on into the rest of brazil.

any recommendations for good tours (3/4 days) that operate in the southern pantanal. anything in particular that are must-see/do's in this region?

any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hey Juliette,
February is okay... I wouldn’t recommend you to go before January because it’s usually dry till December. If you have time, you shouldn’t miss Bonito.
Try to arrange the tours locally, ask for the local’s tips at the hostels / pousadas you are staying at, it’s cheaper.
Wish you a nice trip!
