Trekking in the Pantanal
People talk about the Amazon as being the home to Brazil’s best wildlife. Few may argue with this but for me, the better place is the vast area of jungle and swampland that is the Pantanal in southern, central Brazil. I lived and trekked for two weeks through it. We fished for piranha, rode by horseback through vast scrubland, swam meters away from alligators and connected with a stunning environment.
