September, Our Favorite Month

by Sarah Tuff

PANTANAL, BRAZIL
Tucked into Brazil's far southwestern provinces is one of Earth's greatest and least explored wonders: the diverse ecosystem of the Pantanal. At 80,000 square miles, it's the planet's largest wetlands, making the Florida Everglades look like a kiddie pool. The vast marsh is filled with wild things—jaguars, crocodiles, anacondas, piranhas—but the most ferocious force of nature here is the flooding. That's why September, the end of dry season, is the best time to visit: All those critters have to come to the riverbanks to drink and they become easier to spot. A trip with the U.K.-based Brazil experts at Scott Dunn gives explorers the chance to hike, horseback ride, and canoe through the wetlands. Base camp is the Caiman Ecological Refuge, a 200-square-mile ranch with First World comforts such as caipirinhas, swimming pools, and air-conditioned rooms.
