Hot dusty and challenging clocked in a cover of incredible sights, sounds and smells. So glad we experienced this with all its bumps and dust and disintegrating wooden bridges. We had an experienced guide but you could drive it yourself (if you are crazy!). You...More

A potholed dust bath with ruts and endless termite eaten rickety bridges. But the surrounding countryside travelled through was amazing.

‘Transpantaneira’ is a raised dirt and gravel road across a large flat floodplain of the Pantanal. There is an abundance of Pantanal wildlife - herons, ibis, Paraguayan caimans, and capybaras as well as over 122 rickety bridges!

Typical natural road with a very beautiful and lush nature. If you are driving your own vehicle, be careful when passing through the numerous bridges, many of the wood in bad state of conservation.

This bumpy and at times dusty road offers an ever changing opportunity to observe wildlife and birds. We stopped roadside and even saw an anaconda! Occasionally the local cowboys will drive their cattle by and that's exciting, too!

Most of the Transpantaneria Highway is a very rough dirt road. Make sure you have a good driver and a sturdy vehicle because there are no gas stations or roadside services. When I went, there was a passable two track and the rest of the...More

I would contact the accommodation you are staying at and ask them. When I was there last year, the highway had heaps of large potholes and washed out bridge areas ( that were being repaired). The highway has waterways either... More
