ORYX is proud to present a carefully crafted photo tour to Brazil’s captivating Pantanal, with Photo Tour Leader Penny Robartes.
Penny will use her extensive photographic experience to teach you how best to utilise your camera and capture your photographic vision while you are immersed in the spirit of the destination.
Considered one of the ten “mega-diversity” countries of the world, our Brazil photography tour is an adventure to the vast Pantanal, which is an endless mix of backwaters, lakes, rivers, gallery forests and forested islands.
This is the planet’s largest tropical wetland and is home to some of the most spectacular concentrations of wildlife in South America. Birds are abundant, and a fantastic selection of wildlife awaits the avid photographer, however one creature has an aura unlike any other in the region, and that is the mystical Jaguar. With 6 full days of boat excursions to search for these water-loving cats, we really have a fabulous opportunity to come to grips with these huge predators.
