Itinerary

Join at the airport in Cuiaba

Join at the airport in Cuiaba for the 130 km drive to the Pantanal. The drive takes place on tarred roads for around 50 km, the other 80 km is unsealed. Our journey will take around 3 hours during drought periods; during flood periods it can take longer, depending on the road conditions. Since the road is trans-Pantanal, we'll enjoy the beautiful landscape and the various species of birds and small animals during the journey. The transfer is non exclusive and we are joined by travellers from around the world. There are two transfers a day, departing from the airport at 13.00 and 17.30, so you should arrive in good time to rendezvous. Overnight: Pousada Rio Mutum or similar.

Experience the Pantanal through a variety of activities

Few places on earth offer such an abundance of wildlife and our lodge in the North Pantanal in Mato Grosso state is perfectly located to explore. The days are spent enjoying jungle walks to find capybaras, spotting the many bird species, looking for the elusive jaguar and taking canoes out on to some of the jungle lagoons in the area. Participants should be aware there is no guarantee of seeing specific animals or birds - but you will have a good chance to experience true Pantanal first hand with the knowledge of an expert local guide with you. There are many means to explore (included in the trip cost) so we will use a combination of motorboat outings, canoe excursions, forest walks, tower experiences and night spotlighting outings to gain an intimate understanding of this magical part of the world. Overnight: Pousada Rio Mutum or similar.

To Cuiaba airport where trip concludes

After breakfast you will be transferred to the airport (non private) where the trip concludes. There are two transfers a day, departing at 7 am and 11 am. The return journey will take around 3 hours depending on road conditions, so outgoing flights should be arranged with this in mind.

Additional Information

The Pantanal is a vast wetland area with an incredible diversity of flora and fauna. We will explore this spectacular region on foot, horse back, 4WD, boat or canoe. Many consider this is a far better wildlife viewing trip than the jungles of the Amazon, given the Pantanal's open landscape, compared with the jungle's dense forests. The wildlife viewing is usually very rewarding with possible sightings of alligators, capybaras, otters, monkeys, macaws, cormorants, ibis, parrots and toucans.
