Two of the greatest wetlands on the planet are in South America and Southern Africa: the Pantanal in Brazil and the Okavango Delta of Botswana. Brazilian Expedition Leader Helder Brandao is intrigued with their similarities and differences, and he guides us on a virtual two-continent exploration through these epic safari destinations, contrasting them as we go. If you think of Brazil as mostly beaches, Carnival and the Amazon, you’ll be wowed by its world-class wildlife viewing in the vast Pantanal. And if you picture an African safari as largely dry savanna grasslands, you’ll be surprised by what awaits in the world’s largest inland delta. Helder also brings in wildlife experiences from South Africa and Mozambique on his cross-continent safari, with the intention of showing us just how amazing Brazil is when you consider your options! The Pantanal teems with a multitude of species, including large mammals like the jaguar and tapir, and extraordinary birdlife. Through the lens of landscape, wildlife, plants, lodges, game drives and water-based safari excursions, Helder will more than pique your passion for the Pantanal and its African counterparts.
