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

Mr & Mrs W.
Derbyshire
Brazil - Just Jaguars!

Paulo was a fabulous guide (we have done quite a few tours in the past and can say we have never had a guide go the extra mile so much and as often ever). We had a fabulous holiday packed with more close quarter and prolonged sighting of much more wildlife than anticipated.
Firstly I have to say that although I have enjoyed all of the tours that I have taken with Naturetrek, the 'Just Jaguars' tour exceeded all my expectations due to the excellent sightings, the varierty of accommodation, my fellow travellers, but mainly because of the enthusiasm and determination of our guide Paulo to find us all we had hoped to see and much, much more, he really did give us 110%, willingly and happily. I know that myself and the rest of the group really appreciated his efforts and I hope many more of your clients will have the benefit of his guiding. All in all a very fulfilling, interesting and delightful trip, many thanks.
I found this trip just brilliant in every way...Both the local guides are excellent and were a great help to me...We had clear skies and bright sunshine every day which helped a great deal...I had great views of all the key birds I had especially wanted to see, many now on film, including of course the highlight of the tour - the wonderful Giant Otters.
