Paraguay river & Taiamã Reserve jaguar programs

The perfect way to trace jaguars on the Paraguay river and Taiama Reserve is through the Baiazinha Lodge. Since the Taiama Reserve is a federally protected zone, it is not open to the public and no tour operator is allowed to take tourists to the reserve

Sample program
