“The trip was fabulous and quite successful (we saw 10!! jaguars in 14 sightings). The organization was excellent, and all the transitions were very smooth. My friends were very impressed with the entire operation, and I will be strongly recommending use of BNT for the Pantanal and any other Brazilian trips people might have in mind. Thank you so much.”— Roz Salzman, USA
