After leaving Iguazu Falls we travelled to the Pantanal. We were hoping to see lots of wildlife here and we were not disappointed.
We had booked in to stay on a farm in the Pantanal. To get there we had to get up very early and catch a plane, then transfer to another plane and finally we arrived in Campo Grande.
We were met at the airport by the pilot who was to take us to the farm. We drove for 1.5 hours and then arrived at a little airstrip.
The men moved the plane to fill it with avgas.
Then we took
a huge stack of some pictures
and it was time to go.
The view from the plane was amazing.
I have to admit that I was a little nervous on this flight, there was lightening and thunder and in a small plane (this one seated 4) you feel every puff of wind. Gorgeous Man thought it was fabulous 🙂 and Gorgeous Girl was so worn out from our early morning start, that she slept the whole way and didn’t wake up until after we were on the ground and the engine had been switched off.
