Ibera Wetlands

The Ibera Wetlands, or Esteros del Ibera, is a Provincial Reserve covering 13,000 sq km of wildlife area in the north central part of the Corrientes Province in Northeast Argentina.

Why visit Ibera Wetlands ?

  • Watch Giant Anteaters snuffling around a mighty ant’s hill
  • This is a bird watcher’s paradise with hundreds of species
  • Head out at night in search of maned wolves, viscachas and owls
  • Soak up the incredible scenery whilst galloping through the grasslands
  • Lots of boat trips on the Ibera Lagoon for fishing and caiman watching

This region is known for its incredible biodiversity, and with more than 40 species of mammals, 35 species of amphibians, 80 species of fish and 350 bird species, this wildlife heaven rivals Brazil’s beautiful Pantanal.  The most easily seen mammals are the capybara, the pampas and marsh deer as well as howler monkeys.  Rarer are the neotropical otter and the maned wolf.

Amongst the reptiles are two Argentine species of caiman, the Yacare caiman and the broad-snouted caiman, and the endangered water boa is also present.

The birds are numerous, the most notable are the crested screamer and the olive cormorant, as well as several species of storks, herons and egrets.
