Onçafari Jaguar Project
The Onçafari Jaguar Project is one of the first of its kind in Latin America. It's a non-profit organisation set up ten years ago by Mario, a former professional racing driver who fell in love with African safaris as a young child. The aim is to promote conservation through tourism, rewilding and research to generate far-reaching associated benefits for the Pantanal.
Journey Latin America is delighted to be supporting Onçafari Jaguar Project and all clients visiting the region are encouraged to book the Jaguar Experience at Caiman which not only offers a unique insight into the world of the elusive jaguar, but also helps fund the project.
Find out more about Onçafari Jaguar Project from our Head of Product, Stuart Whittington who visited the region recently.
