Our trip to the Pantanal, Brazil, to watch jaguars hunting, fishing, swimming and stalking prey on their turf was a once in a lifetime opportunity. Several of the jaguars were only about 50 feet away and we would watch and follow them in our boat for an hour or more. We also saw a lot of other wildlife and many birds. This was a very unique experience which we will never forget.

Look - I've been on lots of wildlife and photographic trips and I've been to the Pantanal before but this was special. Not only was it a great group of people but we saw so much wildlife and at close quarters. It was FUN. Pete knows his stuff and enthusiastically pointed out animals. He included everyone and made everyone in the group feel special. The accommodation was good and the food too. Now to the wildlife - Jaguars every day and lots of jaguar behaviour. Wonderful. Then the giant otters and lots of otter behaviour. Marvellous ocelot and tapir not to mention the myriad birds of which I could never remember all the names! The photo opportunities were legend and I came back with over 6000 pics! Some are even good! Very well organised, in spite of 4.30am waking on many occasions! Most of all it was a fun trip with lots of laughter. Thank you so much.

I am a tropical biologist who worked extensively in the American tropics, especially in lowland wet forests in lower Central America and on tepuis in Venezuela. Our trip with Pete Oxford to the Pantanal was the BEST wildlife experience of my career (including the Okavango Delta of Botswana). I saw new "life list" species, but the best parts of the trip were the repeated, long encounters with wildlife species. Pete was the perfect guide who has deep knowledge of the natural history of the ecosystem and her denizens. The group was great and the experience was rejuvenating on many levels. I look forward to my next POE tour. In the meanwhile I can scan my photos, look at my husband's photos, and we can relive some of those moments of wonderment. Thanks Pete for making a long-held dream come true--complete with new friends. Hasta pronto!

Just got back from an amazing and fabulous trip to the Pantanal and Iguazu Falls. We saw Jaguars on all our trips out on the rivers by boat and other wildlife including river otter, tapirs, capybara, ocelot and various bird species. Pete has a genuine passion for wildlife and a vast knowledge of the area. This is the first time I have travelled with Pete and the trip was well organise and I can't wait to travelled again on another trip.

This was our first trip with POE, and it lived up to and surpassed our expectations in every way. Pete led the trip and his enthusiasm, drive and commitment was evident from the very start. We were lucky enough to have great jaguar sightings every day, plus giant otters, caiman, capybara, coati and a vast number bird species. He shared our excitement and pure delight at also seeing ocelot, tapir and an anteater. Pete has excellent wildlife experience and knowledge and our local guide, Anselmo, provided the answers to our many questions regarding local flora, birds, insects etc. We added the Iguassu Falls extension, and were 'blown away' by the Falls – this was a brilliant way to complete the trip by staying in the luxurious Das Cataratas Hotel, which gave us a chance to recharge our batteries and relax, while taking advantage of the unlimited access to the falls. The entire trip was planned by Pete and Renee to give us an amazing insight into the Pantanal – the itinerary worked well with no hitches and gave just the right amount of experiences and down-time.
