Bradt's Wildlife Guides focus on regions of the world particularly celebrated for their amazing and

often unique species. With spectacular photography throughout, each visitors' guide provides an

introduction to the region's principal flora and fauna alongside suggested wildlife itineraries, practical

information on when to go and what to take and photography tips. Written in a deliberately engaging way, they offer something different from dry field guides, and will appeal to the interested layman as much as the wildlife devotee. Ideal as a lightweight companion to any wildlife trip they also make a handsome souvenir. 


A visitor's guide to Brazil's great wetland


"I will be packing this book when I make it over to the Pantanal" David Lindo (BBC's The Urban Birder)

"The Pantanal of Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay is South America's Serengeti: its wetlands are the largest on earth (they're half the size of France) and, in the dry season, crocodiles and storks jostle to gobble the last of the dying fish. Here, the continent's largest cat, the jaguar, lives alongside giant otters, anacondas and the world's largest parrot. A comprehensive introduction to the best place to watch wildlife in South America, and beautifully illustrated throughout, Bradt's Pantanal Wildlife is the only portable book to cover all the main wildlife groups while focussing exclusively on the Pantanal.​"
