Here is a video by Black Grouse Photography covering the first part of our trip to the Pantanal. We spent our first 3 nights at the North of the Transpantaneira road at a lodge called Pouso Alegre. The Pantanal has different habitats with some areas being better than others for different species so we wanted to make sure to pick the right places for the most varied animal sightings. As you can see we saw a nice variety of fauna and would definitely recommend staying at Pouso Alegre. The specialities here are the Hyacinth Macaw, Anteaters, Tapir, Agouti, Crab Eating Foxes and Rheas (the ostrich of South America). These species are not that easy to photograph at the southern end of the Transpantaneira – the Jaguar zone.
Anyway, here is the video of our time at Pouso Alegre, I hope you enjoy it! More will be coming in the future covering the other wonderful areas we visited during our Pantanal trip.
