Please call if you are interested.2010's Festival of Wildlife was held in Brazil. Charles Kinsey, who travelled to the Pantanal, commented: "The main reason for writing is to thank you so much for all your hard work in making the Festival itself such a success. It more than lived up to my expectations and I know that you worked extremely hard to ensure that we had the best time possible. The jaguar sightings were amazing and I did not expect these wonderful animals to be so active during the day - swimming and hunting etc. In particular, the time when some of us observed a jaguar causing trouble to a family of giant river otters and then successfully hunting a caiman was one of the best hours of wildlife watching I have ever experienced! The bird life was quite extraordinary and both the birds and animals were easier to photograph than I had anticipated. In the talks, I learned an enormous amount about the wildlife as well as local tourism and environmental issues. I also greatly valued the time spent with me by the professional photographers to help me improve my photography."
