and the Chapada dos Guimarães National Park, with its caves, grottos, tracks and
waterfalls, is one of its great tourist attractions. In the north is the

National Park and the Araguaia River are in Mato Grosso. Further south, the
Pantanal, the world's largest wetland, is the habitat for almost a thousand
