The Ibera Wetlands, Esteros del Ibera in Spanish, are the second largest fresh water wetlands in the world after the Pantanal in Brazil. Although relatively little visited by tourists the network of lakes, shallow water lagoons and floating islands of vegetation are an important habitat for a startling array of unique wildlife. During your Argentina guided tour
you can expect to see families of capybara, watchful black caiman, orange marsh deer, the maned wolf, coypu (another form of rodent), giant otters and the rare giant anteater. The birdlife is similarly impressive particularly during the migration. Getting to the wetlands is an adventure in itself with some lodges only accessible by light aircraft.
