ITINERARY

From Campo Grande airport you will be transferred to Pousada Aguape, a rural ecolodge located on a cattle farm south of the Pantanal. Situated on the Aquidauana River, this family farm has been operating for 150 years and will be your base for exploration for the coming days. Settle into your surroundings after your arrival by taking an optional piranha fishing excursion or relaxing by the pool.

Choose from a broad range of daily activities available at the farm and to the nearby Pantanal. On the farm you can choose to accompany the cowboys with their routine work or go horse riding to the Pantanal’s open fields and marshes. Alternatively you can take a more relaxed horse and carriage ride. If time didn’t permit on your arrival day, why not try some piranha fishing in the Aquidauana River? Fishing for piranha can be quite tricky thanks to their teeth but your guides will teach you how they are caught and used to prepare piranha soup.

Pantanal Day tours

Take the opportunity to explore more of the Pantanal with more activities available from Pousada Aguape. Today, cover more ground by taking a 4WD Jeep safari into the different landscapes of the Pantanal. Have your camera prepared for plenty of wildlife including the capybara. In the evening, why not try to spot more of the Pantanal’s great wildlife on a nocturnal spotlight tour? From capybara to caimans and foxes to frogs you will see so much more at night on this one hour visit into the Pantanal wilderness.

Departing Pousada Aguape you will be transferred to Bonito, stopping enroute for a half day snorkelling the Sucuri River. Your snorkelling tour begins with a walk through the Riparian Forest of the Sucuri River where you can spot and observe animals such as the capybara in their native habitat. You will then enter the river to float downstream with snorkelling gear, observing a diverse array of fish and underwater plant life in the clear waters. The ecotourism hub of Bonito will be your base for the following days activities.

This morning you will be given another opportunity to hike the Riparian Forest and snorkel, this time at Rio de Prata on the Olho D’agua River.You will again be amazed as you gaze at dozens of fish and aquatic plants as you snorkel the clear waters. In the afternoon you will take a tour to Buraco das Aras (Macaw Pit).
