Pantanal | South America
- Some of the best guides in Brazil, knowledgeable, flexible, passionate about conservation, and especially good with kids
- Incredibly picturesque location, surrounded by thousands of hectares of wilderness and with lawns running right down to the riverbank
- Stunning wildlife – hyacinth macaws nest on the property and several generations of a giant otter family have made their home on a neighbouring stretch of river.
- The lodge hosts teams of researchers working on important conservation projects who are always happy to chat to guests and sometimes accompany activities as well.
- The WiFi is by satellite and surprisingly fast. There is no phone signal though!
- The lodge is closed every year from December to February
- A small lodge means you will get to know the other guests well and dining is around a communal table. Private bookings are a great option for larger family groups though.
- The stunning remote location is easiest to access by light aircraft from Campo Grande airport. Driving is an option during the dry season and takes at least six hours – a memorable experience and you often see plenty of wildlife along the route.
