Dan takes us on a journey of discovery into the heart of the Brazilian Pantanal, the world’s largest wetland and home to the greatest show of wildlife in South America. Here, amongst a mosaic of open floodplains, rivers and riparian forest, we find a landscape teaming with mammals, birds and reptiles, many of them giants of their kind and rarely seen elsewhere in their ranges.
