Tourism, Tours, Hotels and Ecolodges - MS - Brazil
The biome Pantanal is an ecosystem with 250 thousand kilometers in length which is distributed to the south of Mato Grosso, the northwest of Mato Grosso do Sul, the northern Paraguay and eastern Bolivia, and is therefore at the heart of South America in the Upper Paraguay River Basin.
The Paraguay River and its tributaries traverse region forming extensive flooded areas (wetlands) that serve as shelter for many fish, such as dourados, pintados, pacus, piraputangas, piaus, and also for other animals such as the macaw, parrots, capybaras, tucanos and otters. Many animals threatened with extinction in other parts of Brazil still have strong populations including the cervo-do-pantanal, the capybara, the tuiuiú, and the alligator. It is also common to find the famous onça-pintada (jaguar). For all its nature (the cerrado biome) and wildlife, is considered by UNESCO as World Natural Heritage and Biosphere Reserve.
There are more species of birds in the region (656) than in North America (around 500), and more fish species than in Europe (263 against 200). The immense variety of life, translated into constant movement of shapes, colours and sounds, is one of the most beautiful spectacles on Earth. Because of this alternation between dry and wet periods, the landscape is never the same.
The most famous ecotourism tours are: trails, horseback riding, livestock management, observation of the flora and fauna of the Pantanal, boating, riding chariots, canoeing, sport fishing, photographic safari, among others.
