Did you know that the Pantanal is right next to Bonito?
If you like to take the most of your vacations and visit many places in a single trip, you will love to know this: Bonito is right beside the Pantanal, the world's largest wetland area.
It is around 160 km until Miranda's Pantanal.
The Brazilian Pantanal has the size of two countries together, Portugal and Switzerland, but it is home to less people than a medium-sized Brazilian city like Presidente Prudente.
However, it is a huge wild territory, the best phtographic safari of the Americas. Its large wetland area houses many fauna and flora species. It almost has more caimans than Australia has Australians: 20 millions. It is easier to find a giant otter family than a family of traveling human pantanal inhabitants. In the flooding season (between December and April), the landscape is more exuberant. And in the dry season, it is easier to spot the animals.
This dive into nature is made easy by the flat geography and the ground vegetation. The scenery where you can see the horizon from end to end turns the sunrise and the sunset into a show of lights and colors.
And one of the best ways to enjoy the Pantanal is staying in a farm, there are many with a great structure to welcome tourists. Besides appreciating all the Pantanal spirit and that delicious farm food, you can enjoy the many tours that they offer, such as the photo safari, horse riding, wildlife watching at night, river barge rides, fishing, walks, among others.
Stay a bit longer in Mato Grosso do Sul and spend some days in the Pantanal to have this experience in the biggest ecological sanctuary on the planet. And if you don't have much time, there is also the option of spending the day in one of the farms nearest to Bonito, arriving early and returning at the end of the day.
