Porto Jofre is located at the end of the Transpantaneira where the road meets the Cuiabá river. From here, we will explore the Cuiabá river and its tributaries by speed-boats, and in particular the "Encontro das Aguas State Park", the place with the highest concentration of jaguars in the world, a really amazing place, where live lot of caimans, capybaras and birds.
During the dry season, from June to November, jaguars stay close to the rivers where they find water to drink and their favorite preys: caimans and capybaras.
Jaguars rest and walk on the river banks, often they enter in the water to hunt and to take a fresh bath.
Besides the jaguars you will have the opportunities to photograph also the endangered giant river otters (Pteronura brasiliensis) during their incredible fishing scenes.
