I’m just back from two weeks with Pete in the Pantanel. What can I say ….I enjoyed the trip immensely. I found the wildlife sightings quite staggering. At the very start of the trip, Pete said ‘we’ll see Jaguar’ … I live in Costa Rica and if you see one Jaguar in your life here you’re doing well. But Pete’s quiet confidence was well placed and we saw 13 different jaguar, 30 times. We saw a huge range of interesting behaviours and we even saw one killing a caiman, right in front of our eyes.
I also really appreciated Pete’s zeal, passion and commitment to helping us see stuff… he banged on my door at 4am one morning because a tapir was outside the room. Which was great …. That’s what we were all there for.
I actually also thought it was great value for money. The richness of what we saw surpassed my expectations by miles. And the people I met in the group, had all had interesting lives and we stayed up at night swapping stories from our youth.
I’d highly recommend going with Pete. You’ll see lots more than with anyone else.
