A well-kept secret, the Ibera wetlands covers an expanse that is larger than Wales.
Remote lagoons, tropical corridors, swampland and winding rivers are an ideal habitat for capybara, two types of caiman, neotropical otters, pampas and marsh deer, the highly elusive maned wolf and hundreds of bird species. Second only in size to the Pantanal of Brazil, this is a nature-lovers paradise with a total area of over 5,000 square miles. For a luxury holiday with a difference, stay at one of the isolated and idyllic estancias and enjoy a relaxing few days exploring this huge wetland by horseback or in a canoe. This non-invasive method of watching the wildlife is peaceful and enchanting, particularly for couples or families. A project to re-introduce the red and green macaw is taking place here, which may interest birdwatchers who come to see the 350 other bird species which call Ibera home.
