Trip Report Macaws, monkeys and moai : 6 weeks in the Pantanal, peru and Polynesia

Jump to last reply

The goals of this year’s South American safari were good weather and jaguar in the Pantanal and to explore ‘wild’ Peru in Manu, Tambopata and Chaparri Reserve. We opted to island-hop our way back to Australia via Easter Island and Tahiti as it was a good opportunity to visit these remote destinations. A full trip report is available at: http://safaritalk.net/topic/11322-macaws-monkeys-and-moai-6-weeks-in-the-pantanal-peru-and-polynesia/

Photos from the Pantanal, Peru and Polynesia are online at https://picasaweb.google.com/Treepol together with accommodations from South America.

The highlights:

A giant anteater with a baby on its back
Walking up to an armadillo as it snuffled along
Jaguar, jaguar, jaguar – 11 different animals
