SouthWild Pantanal

Set deep in Brazil's northern Pantanal, on the banks of the Pixaim River, the SouthWild Pantanal is a wonderfully hospitable lodge. With an emphasis on the local wildlife, expert guides lead daily excursions to view giant river otters, tapirs, macaws, howler monkeys and much more.

Southwild Jaguar Flotel

The Southwild Jaguar Flotel, is a floating hotel based in the Northern Pantanal. Due to the nomadic style of the accommodation the chances of seeing the famous Jaguar are increased dramatically. During the daytime cats can be as close as 3-5 metres from the boat itself.
