PANTANAL EXPERIENCE


The main focus of this unforgettable experience is the sighting of the majestic jaguars in their natural habitat, the Pantanal. This immense flood plain stretches for about 230,000 km2, covering part of Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay. In addition to the jaguars, absolute protagonists of the trip, it will be possible to spot other incredible animal species, including capybara, caimans, monkeys, cougars and tapirs, in addition to over 600 species of birds and many species of fish, including the feared piraña.
The tour will depart from the airport or from the hotel. We recommend arriving early in the morning, no later than 11.00 am. An early arrival is preferable as the transfer from Cuiaba to Poconé will take about an hour and a half (100 km). From the capital of the Pantanal (Poconé) the route will continue on the Transpantaneira for 147 km towards Porte Jofre. Since it is a dirt road, the unit will take about 3.5-4 hours. During the journey on the Transpantaneira, 122 bridges will be crossed, most of which are still made of wood (in 2016 the government started replacing some of the bridges with new concrete bridges). During the entire journey it will be possible to see many wild animals and particular bird species since the Transpantaneira road crosses the heart of the Pantanal.
