Maned Wolf Safari

Emas National Park

Overview

An photo safari in search of the elusive and endangered Maned Wolf (Chrysocyon brachyurus), the largest and little-known canid of South America.

The Maned Wolf is found in grasslands and scrublands of central South America, in particular in the Brazilian Cerrado. In the last decade the population has decreased due to deforestation, habitat lost, road kills, hunting, human persecution and disease. It's considered Near Threatened by the IUCN and Vulnerable by the Brazilian government IBAMA. The current population of Maned Wolves is estimated at approximately 17,000 individuals.

Our safaris allow to document this wonderful and strange animal inside the Emas National Park. Other species include giant anteater, pampas deer, greater rhea, burrowing owl, cock-tailed tyrant, toco toucan, red-legged seriema, southern crested caracara, campo flicker, white-tailed hawk and other birds, lot of beautiful plants and breathtaking landscapes!
