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

Brazil - Just Jaguars!

Having filled in the questionnaire relating to the Just Jaguars trip, I would like to add my own personal thoughts on the trip. Having travelled with a number of companies over the years, Naturetrek stands well above all others. Its success is brought about by a number of factors, past and present research into status of the group of mammals, birds or other animals that are being quested. This is coupled with a great depth of knowledge of the countries being visited. Above all is the dedication of the staff employed to engage with the clients to bring about the fulfillment of the purpose of the trip. Naturetrek takes all of the above criteria and comes up with the results. Accommodation was good and in the right areas, local staff were fully versed with the wildlife of their areas and made a large contribution to the success of the trip. One cannot speak too highly of the naturalist tour leader, Marcos Felix. His knowledge of the whole area, its birds, mammals, trees, plants etc. ensured a continuous flow of information over a wide range of subjects.
Our guide, Marcos Felix, was outstanding. His passion for the animals was obvious and he appeared to take just as much pleasure in watching the Jaguars, Tapirs, Giant Otters and all the birds as we did. I was amazed, not only at seeing nine different Jaguars, but at seeing six Tapirs, four of which were in the daytime. This really is an amazing trip that I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to see the amazing animals of South America.
Enjoyed seeing plenty of wildlife, including Jaguars, Giant River Otters, Ocelot, Brazilian Tapir and a large variety of birds. Having an enthusiastic tour leader always makes for a good holiday and he was excellent.
