Although less known than the big cats habitat than in Africa, you may be surprised to find that South and Central America has a fair share of wildcats, including some beautiful and graceful fate that you've never heard of. Observing these wonderful creatures requires more patience and commitment than in other parts of the world, such as East Africa, but the reward for seeing such a neglected mammal over such remote riverside or mountain peaks.
The vast hills of the jungle jungle east of the Andes and the Amazon's plains and the rain forest regions of the ancient Mayan country are unexpectedly endangered cats such as ocelot, margays, jaguarundi, cat geoffroy, Andean cats and the largest continent species, jaguar and puma (also known as puma or mountain lions in the US and Canada).
As many beast populations, these incredibly elusive and rare beings decrease in numbers, and because it is much harder to find them than in other parts of the world, open plains, even their number is estimated by experts. However, if you carefully choose the location, you will still have a chance to meet two of the largest wildcat in the region as well as many other unique and fascinating native beasts. And in Latin America, with growing awareness of the pursuit of height preservation, their future survival chances are largely dependent on their increased interest in controlling these cats through controlled tourism that can help protect their habit from interfering with farming.
Journey to the fascinating region of the Central Brazilian Pantanal: a huge seasonal floodplain, which includes the Savannah and tropical forest in a field of hundreds of thousands of square miles. The vast network of birds, rivers, and swamps is a thousand species of birds, animals, fish, plants and reptiles, and rare species include hyacinth macaw, giant otter and of course the beautiful jaguar.
The best time to see these cats is the third largest in the world after tigers and lions, the Pantanal is in dry seasons, especially in July and August, as jaguar, large swimmers gather in the declining Paraguay-Cuiaba rivers Prevent the spoils, which includes otter, deer, and even anaconda and caiman. Stay in such a very remote area is still very easy from simple homeowners to rustic tent camps and simple hotels, where you take small leaks from the river looking up from day to day to jaguar, as well as huge riverboats, capy friendly, caiman, and perhaps tapir, ocelot and peccaria. You can organize a wonderful local guide that can take you to a private tour, so a luxurious couple of days will compensate for more than their extraordinary scientific knowledge, a dedicated naturalist who lived and worked throughout his life in this region. Spend a few days near Porto Jofre, daily with a boat, jaguar, and enjoy a more comfortable stay in a charming house, either in the north or south Pantanal, where you can spend days, hiking, canoeing or horseback riding. in this incredible biodiversity region of bird species, mammals and reptiles.
Like the Jaguar, the habitat of the puma extends along the length of the American continent. Puma concolor can be considered a ghost-like mammal, so it rarely appears. Of course, the longer civilization, farming, roads and development are, the more likely it is to catch the beautiful wild cats. The far north of the Torres del Paine National Park in southern Chile is far from the relatively small number of visitors to the iconic granite columns or to Torres, or to the intense colored icy beaches around the quiet pond of the lakes, the patagonian steppes where the puma remains undisturbed relatively rare Huemul (South Andes deer) and other indigenous wildlife such as condors, rheas, guanaco, gray fox and eagle, mention only a few.
You can organize it to discover the distant regions of the Southern Patagonia with an incredible guide who is a professional wild photographer and expert wildlife guide who accompanies his own private quest tracking expedition and photo safari. There are a number of beautiful, designer-led farms in the park and its surroundings, which can be the basis for a patagonian adventure, where you can relax in a stunningly beautiful setting in the evening, with intimate fire, glass of fine wine and gourmet food. kitchen.
One of my favorites is a camp on the shore of Lake Toro, where you can enjoy the luxurious yurt tents in the rooftop window and on the lakes and forests on the terrace. Here you can arrange a special trip here that combines a few days of excursions, kayaking or horseback riding in the park, spending a few days on the north side of the park with your travel guide, sometimes overnight at night in remote refugees or simple huts (but of course a few delightful picnics!) to get the best chance of meeting pumas.
