For more than 20 years now we have been accompanying our guests in the northern Pantanal. Our Lodge is located about 38km from the entrance into the wetland. It is located directly at the famous dust road, the Transpantaneira, which leads from Poconé to Porto Jofre.
As soon as you pass the gate to the Transpantaneira, shortly after Poconé, you will experience the incredibly rich fauna and flora. You think you are in the middle of a huge zoo, only there are no walls and hardly any fences, only bushes, trees and the wide horizon limit the view to infinity. Caimans lie at the waterholes, a Capybara family stroll over the Transpantaneira and an anaconda lurk in a moat. The many water lilies, between which the big Jabirus storks strut and search for fish are a typical picture here. The termite hills up to 2 meters high look as if they were paved by human hands.
Our tours include excursions to the whole region. The Pantanal alluvial plain, the Chapada, the meeting of the jaguar and river snorkeling in Nobres. All these trips can be combined.
Accompanied by our local guides, you will ride on gentle horses through the savannah. Have you ever seen an armadillo digging his burrow? Or at dusk, a tapir swimming in the water in the light of your flashlight?
On the high plateaus of the Chapadas you can enjoy the wide view of the lowlands and the savanna forests in absolute silence. Did you know that this is the geographical centre of South America? Why you don't take a dip in a river with many small waterfalls and discover the bizarre rock formations.
On the bottom of the clear river in the 25°C warm water there are often small freshwater stingrays. Let yourself float and swim eye to eye with the harmless black piranhas. Close to the accommodation, you'll spot shoals of blue yellow macaws on the palm trees as well as capuchin monkeys running around.
These graceful big cats are often to be seen at the river bank. Unfortunately, many animals were shot down in the 60's and still today the population recovers only slowly. They hunt deer, otters, agoutis, capybaras and even caimans in a large area with dense forests.
