Pantanal Rio Mutum Lodge Stay 4 Days

4 Days FROM £ 980

Overview

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). This four-night stay in the beautiful Rio Mutum ecolodge offers you the chance to get to know the Pantanal’s unsurpassed natural wonders, while enjoying the comfort and hospitality of the ecolodge.

 

Please note that other durations are also available - including three, five and six night stays. The four night stay is our most popular itinerary.

ITINERARY INSPIRATION

On arrival at Cuiabá Airport in the Pantanal, you will be met and will begin your 4 hour drive to Rio Mutum Eco-Lodge.

The Pantanal is a UK-sized montage of seasonally flooded savannahs and tropical forests which expands across millions of hectares of central-western Brazil, eastern Bolivia and eastern Paraguay.

On arrival at the lodge, we settle in, enjoy dinner and a briefing from the friendly staff before retiring for the evening.

The Rio Mutum Lodge consists of cottage-like apartments which are spread throughout the 7 hectare site offering privacy and peace. Hammocks hang invitingly from the mango trees and a large pool adds to the relaxed vibe you find here. All meals are included in your stay here.

Please note that we have two set transfer times per day; 12:30 and 17:30pm.

Transfer from Airport

After breakfast, we set off on horseback for a trail-ride through the jungle up to the edge of the Siá Mariana Bay. Horses are the perfect way to cover the varied terrain as they can take us places inaccessible by vehicle. We return to the lodge for lunch before heading out by boat for a photographic safari on the largely unexplored Mutum River. Here we hope to find the giant Brazilian otters, sting rays, shoals of fish and various birds which inhabit the riverbanks.

Pantanal - Horseback ride

After breakfast, we set off on foot to explore the jungle and open savannah that surrounds the lodge. The Pantanal is home to a known 3,500 species of plants, as well as over 1,000 birds, 400 species of fish, around 300 species of mammals, and 480 species of reptiles. The open spaces of the Pantanal make it an ideal place for wildlife spotting and a bird watchers paradise.

Pantanal - Wildlife Walk

We rise early for a magical canoe trip down the Mutum River at sunrise. This is the perfect time of day for wildlife spotting and a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the Pantanal at the break of dawn.

We return to the lodge for breakfast and check-out before we make the return trip to Cuiabá airport.

Sustainability

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.
