Jaguars

We offer a selection of professionally organised, Jaguar watching holidays, offering chances to witness these enigmatic animals.

Naturetrek Jaguar Tours

The Jaguar is South Americas most iconic cat. Secretive and stunningly beautiful, seeing a Jaguar surely ranks among the worlds top 10 wildlife experiences. Naturetrek offers a dedicated Jaguar watching tour to Brazil - Just Jaguars! with a 100% success record to date, as well as a longer holiday to Brazil on which Jaguars may be seen.  Naturetrek groups have also seen Jaguars in Tambopata, Peru (Macaws and Machu Picchu) and in the Iwokrama rainforest in Guyana (Guyana - A Timeless Paradise), although sightings in both localities are less frequent than in the Pantanal.

Our Jaguar specialist recommends...

If you want a holiday dedicated to looking for wild Jaguars, you can’t do any better than Naturetrek’s ‘Brazil – Just Jaguars!’ tour. We’ve had some excellent sightings – Jaguars sitting beside a river, on a track and even swimming. For those who want to stay longer and explore a greater variety of habitats I’d recommend our 17-day ‘‘Brazilian Pantanal & IguazuFalls’ tour, though you’ll see a host of fantastic wildlife on both trips!

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Jaguars HOLIDAYS

Many thanks to you and Naturetrek for another great trip, Guyana was a fascinating experience and we were extremely lucky in our sightings including a male Jaguar, Giant Ant Eater, Cock of the Rock displaying, young Harpy Eagle and FOUR Potoos (Common, Long Tailed, White Winged and Great) and I was happy as I got to photograph my bugs (some extremely interesting ones) and Odonata (which were in abundance!!!)

Andy Smith was excellent - an ace at recognition, very helpful with his telescope, and very patient with less experienced birders. He also knew his mammals, insects and arachnids very well. Arrow Pint was a good starting point...Shanklands was marvellous and quirky...Surama had a wonderful ambience...the walks were good at Iwokrama...Rock View was interesting and Karanambus rooms, food, and activities were excellent. All in all, an enjoyable and memorable holiday which more than met my expectations. Everywhere the people we met were friendly and keen to share their knowledge. Although I was a tourist I certainly didn’t feel like one! Thanks to all.
Iguacu is the most beautiful and impressive place we've ever been, and the staging of the order of the visits was excellent. The plenitude of life in the Pantanal was extraordinary.
