I have just returned from wonderful photo trip to Bonito in Brazil. It is located in the state of mato grosso do sul. This area of Brazil, along with the state Matto grosso (which is just above it) is full of wildlife. This is mainly due to the massive amounts of water and wetlands in the pantanal, which drain into the rivers of bonito. Bonito is a wildlife photographers dream, with crystal clear rivers and waterfalls, full of fish, otters, caimans and the dreaded anaconda (In fact Bonito is one of the best places in the world to see the Anaconda). Bonito is also home to an amazing array of colourful birds. From the red macaws to the Toco Toucan to a vast array of hummingbirds.
I have been living in the big, bustling city of Sao Paulo, Brazil for around 9 months now. Only a couple of hours down the road is a stunning paradise though. An escape from the craziness. This is the north coast (Litoral Norte) of Sao Paulo state. This area of Sao Paulo state is a photographers dream. Full of mountains, beaches, jungles and wildlife to photograph.
