The transpantaneira is a causeway, thus elevated and therefore offering a lovely photo safari during the trip out, with several stops to watch nature and birds like the Jabiru, egrets, spoonbills and others. Arrival at the lodge and ‘pantaneiro’ welcome. Lunch and nap.

2nd day – Pantanal
{Sunrise, horses, boats, night walk}

We wake up early to witness the pantaneiro dawn, followed by sunrise. A spectable of colors and sounds fill the environment during the interlude prior to the sun’s emergence as the nightime animals go home and those of the day appear. An interesting moment to walk in the vicinity and learn some more about the Pantanal. Breakfast and immediately afterwards the horseback ride deep into the typical Pantanal ranch. This adventure takes the visitor across open fields, woods and forests, corixos and lagoons, along dry and wet trails, living the experience like a true pantaneiro. Return for lunch and the usual pantaneiro nap. In the afternoon an excursion by boat for a closer contact with rivers, corixos and lagoons. Here you will be able to see Anhinga, Kingfishers, Sunbittern, Blak-colared hawk, Giant Brazilian Otters and other species that unhabit the riverbanks. A beatiful boat boat trip specially at sundown with all the colours to watch both in the sky and their reflection in the water. Return at the end of the day and rest. Dinner and sleep.
