Brazil Amazon + Pantanal 2020 Photo Tour
Join me on an epic trip to western Brazil for an adventure that splits time between both the Amazon Rainforest and the Pantanal. The Pantanal, of course, is famous as the best place on earth to see wild jaguars. It’s also home to giant otters, tapirs, and other mammals, along with countless birds. This is a popular destination for big cat photography, and we’ll spend some prime time looking for jaguars. Few Pantanal trips are combined with the Amazon, however.
This trip will give you a chance to explore the tropical rainforest and see a number of mammal and bird species that we won’t find farther south in the pampas and wetlands. We’ll travel on rivers, jungle trails and will check out a couple of excellent canopy towers.
We’re heading to Alaska’s Lake Clark National Park for brown bears! This is one of the few tours I lead that is centered around one particular subject, but it doesn’t mean that’s all we’ll see. We’ll have a marine outing from Seward to look for other wildlife prior to visiting the national park. Once we get there, we’ll be based at a lovely beachfront lodge, which will serve as our home base for bear exploration.
Join me on a photo adventure in the world’s first national park! Yellowstone is home to abundant wildlife (it’s probably the best location for general wildlife in the Lower 48), and even has some landscape photo opportunities as well.
Our tours shift focus depending on the season, with spring being more wildlife-centric, while the autumn and winter tours offer more opportunities for landscapes.
I try to offer a variety of tours to various wildlife-rich destinations. These trips rarely focus on one particular subject, instead bringing us in contact with a wide range of species.
Tour destinations include:
- Yellowstone National Park
- Costa Rica
- South America: Brazil, Chile and Ecuador
- Africa: South Africa and Tanzania
- Great Bear Rainforest
- The Pacific Northwest
