Araras Eco Lodge detail
A rustic, regional style lodge that blends with its surroundings
Two and a half hours by car from Cuiaba Airport, via the Transpantaneira Park Road, in the Pantanal, the largest continuous wetland on the planet (approx. 250,000 square kilometres).
Accommodation & Facilities
Rooms are warm and comfortable, built in a rustic style, gathered around a shady courtyard. Each of the 19 rooms is air-conditioned with screened windows & ceiling fans, as well as en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold running water. There are wide, relaxing verandas with hammocks and comfy seating, as well as a good sized swimming pool, bar and a restaurant, as well as a nice covered area for outdoor dining.
Home-cooked meals can be eaten in the dining area or in the thatched area by the pool. Wherever possible organic cuisine is served and sourced from the Pantanal.
On each excursion you will be accompanied by an expert, bilingual, naturalist guide, setting out into the wild wetlands of the Pantanal. Explore the waterways with a canoe, try piranha fishing, or ride horse back past the giant lily-pads of the wetlands. Come into close contact with the resident flora and fauna on a walk, enjoy a jeep safari to get some fabulous photos or head out at night with a spotlight to see some of the nocturnal species of the area. Each evening you will gather and decide what you want to do the next day and learn about the local culture and wildlife.
Children are welcome.
