This expedition into Pantanal, Amazon and Iguassu will get you closer to nature with comfort and safety. Pantanal, the largest area of marshland in the world, is classified by UNESCO as a World Biosphere Reserve and is inhabited by numerous species of mammals, reptiles, birds and fish. Amazon, the largest rain forest in the world, shelters one third of earth's living species and is the source of one quarter of the world's water supply. Manaus with its beautiful neoclassic Opera House, was the center of the rubber boom in the 19th century. In Iguassu, the world's second largest falls are formed by a mass of water from three rivers joined together at the borders of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay.
