Often called the world's largest wetland, the Pantanal region of southwestern Brazil (and extending into Bolivia and Paraguay) is one of the best places in South America to view wildlife. Eighty percent of the massive Pantanal floodplains are submerged during the rainy seasons, which helps foster breathtaking biodiversity. Yet the relative openness of the country makes it much easier to see animals than the dense rain forest of the Amazon basin.Bird watching in the Pantanal is one of the greatest things an enthusiast could ever experience.The Pantanal has a wide variety of bird life with over 1000 species recorded.
