Lovely report @@cheetah80 Can I ask did you see any spiders on the boat or other large creatures pretending they were spiders? Did the cats seem spooked by the boats- they look very relaxed in your splendid videos

Part 1 - Pouso Alegre   Here is the first part of our "visual" Pantanal trip report - for those with short attention spans ;-) I'm sorry I don't have the time for a day by day journal, but this is

Part 2 - The Jaguar Zone   This must be one of my favourite videos by Mr Cheetah80     After 3 nights at Pouso Alegre it was time for some rivers and jaguars - we were really looking forward

Part 3: SouthWild Pantanal - It's all about the birds   Video by Mr Cheetah80   Once again I thank you all for your kind words @@KaingU Lodge, @@janzin, @@Big_Dog, @@kitefarrago, @@Atravelynn,

Thank you @@Towlersonsafari! I cannot recall seeing any spiders on the boat. During 11 nights in the Pantanal I saw only 1 spider in one of our rooms, medium sized.

 

The cats that we saw were not bothered by the boats at all which I found quite incredible considering all the noise and commotion 20 or so boats can cause! They are actually masters at ignoring the boats completely. But some of the jaguars don't like the boats at all and disappear immediately - unfortunately some boat driver behaviour is really harassing the cats. So what I am trying to say is that if the cat is already there at a sighting it will not be scared off by the boats, the shy ones will be gone long before you spot them.

 

Hope this info helped!

Thank you @@cheetah80 ! Jane is very scared of spiders so your reassurance must mean we should go!! Then if we see one I can quote from you! To see a jaguar must be epic thanks again for your report

These are TREEEEEEEEEmendous.

 

You may be the idiot who can't keep a secret but you sure can take a picture! And the videos are tremendous quality too.

 

Scary about the wasps. Almost as bad as being thrown onto a jaguar!

 

I hope the code of conduct that you mention can be enacted for the sake of all involved.
