As such, the Pantanal remains one of the earth’s most untouched wildernesses, and provides the perfect cocktail of nature, weather and ground conditions for an astonishing number of plants, animals, fish and birds to flourish in. In fact, this area has the highest concentration of fauna of any ecological habitat in the world. The Pantanal nature is pure and unfiltered, so visitors to the area can see vast swathes of swamp and marshland that are inhabited by jaguars, pumas, wolves, deer, anteaters, armadillos, monkeys, alligators and over 250 species of fish and a further 650 species of bird – apparently over 20 million alligators reside in the area. Take advantage of your trip to Pantanal by visiting the adventure sport haven of nearby Bonito. Bonito enjoys a wealth of natural features such as caves, waterfalls, lakes, rivers and grottos. The water that abounds in this region has been compared to that of the Caribbean, given its bright blue colour and the crystalline clarity of its appearance. This is due to the fact that the water is filtered through the limestone ground surface, which deposits the impurities on the riverbed, rendering the water itself completely clear and transparent.
