ITINERARY

From Campo Grande airport you will be transferred to Caiman Ecolodge, your superior accommodation located in the heart of the Pantanal. Situated in Cuyabeno Reserve, these intimate lodges will be your base for exploration for the coming days. Settle into your surroundings after your arrival by kicking back in a hammock or taking in the rainforest canopy from the viewing tower.

Take an excursion to the Southern Pantanal with one of Caiman Ecolodge’s naturalist guides. They will teach you everything there is to know about the local flora, fauna and culture of the Pantanal region. Depending on your interest you can choose to take a 4WD safari, paddle on a canoe tour, take a walk on a hiking trail or enjoy a nocturnal spotlight tour of the forest.

Today you have an additional free day to enjoy more of the Pantanal. This time allows you to enjoy more of the included activities from day two or, alternatively, to book an optional excursion. Options include horseback riding, a bicycle tour, a visit to the Hyacinth Macaw Institute or a Oncafari to observe Jaguars in their natural habitat.

Departing Caiman Ecolodge 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). This massive sink hole provides a habitat to 157 bird species and you can visit two of the main viewpoints to observe the birds within the sandstone crater.
