August 2020: Wildlife Photography in the Pantanal with Paul Joynson-Hicks

Capture the very best of Brazil's Pantanal alongside world-class photographer, Paul Joynson-Hicks. Paul's inimitable enthusiasm for wildlife and photography is utterly infectious. In his words. "I love photography, taking pictures and seeing the results, I love seeing a beautiful thing repeated on the screen. It's my passion."

To give you a taste of what to expect, every one of the images on this page was taken by Paul during his last visit to the Pantanal a few years ago. He was captivated by what he saw and it has been his dream to return with a small group of guests who share is passion for nature and wildlife. Whether you are an experienced photographer looking to explore the next level of skill or an amateur taking your first steps, this journey is designed to allow the best possible chance to see jaguars in the wild as well as all the treasures of these extraordinary wetlands.

The journey begins in Porto Jofre, one of the Pantanal’s most famous regions for jaguar spotting. Paul visited Porto Jofre a few years ago to capture these stunning images. Staying at the simple but charming Pantanal Norte lodge, guests are a 20 minute boat journey to the best jaguar spotting around and, while we can never guarantee that you will see these elusive creatures, you are in the best location and in peak season to maximise your chances.

From there a one night stop in Campo Grande between destinations takes you to the exclusive reserve of Caiman Ecological Refuge. A four night stay here gives you the chance to meet some of the most exciting jaguar conservationists on the continent and discover their strategy and plans for the future of conservation in Brazil.
