July 19 to 29, 2019

Discover the Pantanal, the largest freshwater wetland in the world and a premier destination for wildlife viewing.

Wet ’n wild. Explore this inundated plain with Professor Bob Siegel, ’76, MA ’77, MD ’90, enjoying unobstructed views of an incredible collection of fascinating creatures—from capybaras, caimans and jabiru storks to giant anteaters, howler monkeys and hyacinth macaws. Keep an eye out. Home to the magnificent jaguar, the Pantanal is the best place to catch sight of one of these stunning and powerful, yet elusive, animals in their natural habitat. Saddle up. Stay over at a working cattle ranch and learn how agriculture and conservation have joined forces here to work hand in hand. Over the edge. Visit breathtaking Iguazu Falls on an optional post-trip extension.
