Pantanal - Pousada Xaraes - 5 Days with Bonito


The Pantanal is the world’s largest wetlands area. Often overshadowed by the Amazon Rainforest, the Pantanal is actually considered to be the world’s densest flora and fauna ecosystem; and its wide open wetland spaces make it much easier to spot wildlife (especially during the dry season where animals are easily found at watering holes).

Please note that other durations are also available, with or without Bonito. The additional excursion to Bonito offers fantastic value and hence the reason why this is the most popular itinerary we have at this lodge.

Chimu Adventures undertakes a number of sustainability measures within its operations including:
1) Only using local guides and office staff to both maximise local employment opportunities and minimise carbon footprints. Local guides also ensure you benefit from the intimate knowledge, passion and culture of the country you’re visiting.
2) Where possible, using locally owned and operated boutique hotels to maximise the return to the local community.
3) Chimu’s “Pass it on” programme has provided funding to hundreds of local community projects in Latin America. Our aim is to empower local communities, helping them to develop their own infrastructure for the future. Since 2006, we have been working with Kiva (a well-known Non-Governmental Organisation), providing hundreds of loans to local businesses all over South America.
4) In our pre tour information we provide a range of tips and advice on how to minimise your impact on both local environments and communities.
5) Chimu Adventures’ offices also take a number of sustainability measures including carbon offsets for company vehicles and most staff travel. Chimu Adventure’s internal processes are also structures to create a paperless office and to reduce waste. There are also internal programmes to help staff minimise their carbon footprint such as our staff bike purchase assistance plan which encourages office staff to commute to work via bicycle. Currently almost half of our office based staff commute to work via bicycle.

All the apartments have private bathrooms, air conditioning, fridge bar, with rustic decoration and a welcoming atmosphere. In each set of rooms, there is a veranda with fans and hammocks providing an alternative resting area.

The restaurant dining room, which overlooks the gardens from whose trees the nesting birds can be heard all day, is equiped with fans and air conditioning and decorated in the rustic style that is characteristic of the whole guest-house. Delicious food, typical of the Pantanal, is served in a buffet system while being kept hot on a woodfired stove. The room also has restrooms for both men and women.
