For more than 20 years now we have been accompanying our guests in the north of the Pantanal. Our guesthouse is located about 28km south of the entrance gate to the Pantanal. It is located directly at the famous dust road, the Transpantaneira, which leads from Poconé to Port Joffre.
Already when you pass the gate, you will notice the incredibly rich fauna and flora. One believes to be in the middle of a huge zoo, only that there are no walls and hardly any security fences and only bushes, trees or the horizon limit the view. At the water points there are Kajmane, over the Transpantaneira there is a Capybara family or an Anaconda in the ditch. The many water lilies between which the big Jabirus storks stalk and look for fishes are a typical picture here. The many light grey termite mounds look as if they would form a dry island in the wet season.
Our 12 tours include trips to the region and the Pantanal itself. These can also be combined.
Accompanied by our local Guias, you ride on gentle horses through the savanna plain. Have you ever watched an armadillo digging? In the twilight, watching a paper in hip-high 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 don't you take a dip in the river of the many small waterfalls and discover the bizarre stone sculptures.
At the bottom of the crystal clear river in 25C warm water there are often small freshwater rays. Just let yourself drift down the river as you 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.
We're on the Jaguar's trail. These graceful big cats can often be seen on the riverbank. Unfortunately, many animals were shot down in the '60s and still today the population recovers only slowly. They hunt deer, otters, agoutis, capybaras and even a kajman in a large area with dense woodland.
