location of Pantanal

The Pantanal is a seasonally inundated floodplain in west central Brazil, along the border with Bolivia and Paraguay.  It has been billed as the largest freshwater wetland in the world and boasts the greatest concentration of wildlife in the Americas.  Most of the land is privately owned, and the dominant industries are cattle ranching and ecotourism.  Because the Pantanal is located at the convergence of major South American biomes, and because of the open landscape, wildlife viewing is spectacular.
