Paulo was an excellent tour leader and a very knowledgeable wildlife guide. I am sure we wouldn't have made half the sightings without him. He was also very well organised, proactive and helpful. Thoroughly likeable - he played a big part in making our trip such a success. We were exceptionally lucky in our sightings- 10 jaguar sightings, with 6 different jaguars (and on some occasions these were for longer than an hour at a time), multiple rare birds, tapirs, river otters, ocelots etc. More than this, though, I thought the trip was well balanced - there was plenty for the birders but not at the expense of those of us who were there for the mammals, photography etc. Again, I cannot speak highly enough of Paulo and the contribution he made to ensuring every member of the group had a good holiday - he was very sensitive to individuals without sacrificing the overall goals of the group. The whole trip was one big highlight.
Marcos was brilliant - a lovely, friendly person who could spot wildlife anywhere. He worked so, so hard to give us all an experience of a lifetime and certainly succeeded plus he was super organised and made sure everything ran smoothly for us. A true asset to the Just Jaguars tour which far exceeded our expectations with magical viewings of six Jaguars over extended periods of time and also families of Giant River Otters. The Pantanal is outstanding for wildlife viewing and the tour made the very most of it all.
