I have just returned from 4 nights at Pousada do Rio Mutum, so my review is based on the situation in late March. I understand that the experience can change dramatically during the dry season. After driving in from Cuiaba, we took a 30" ride by motor boat to the pousada. It was a lovely introduction; our guide, Zaine, was...

We had four nights here in February and it really was very pleasant, Food good although as it was low season we did not have a buffet but the quantity and variety of the home cooked food meant there was always a choice. The accommodation was erring to basic but very well done and in keeping with an "eco-style" holiday...

Accomodations were great when combined with a number of tours (2 or 3/day) we had contracted through our travel agency. Boat trips were a great way to have a complete idea of how rich is the nature in this region. Cuiaba and Mutum Rivers propiciated great boat and kayak guided trips in order to spot a great variety of birds,...

I was the only guest in the lodge this days. The guide was excellent, and took me to many exiting Places. He had a high knowledge of the nature. My room in the lodge was a bit dark, but the roomsevice was very good. The Food in the restaurant was good, and it was very good service from the staff.

This camp in the Pantanal has a wonderful location, since you are surrounded by the local flora and fauna right next to your room. The room is comfortable and has everything you need. The food is great and the bar is fantastic due to the bar-keeper who makes excellent speacial Caipirinhas. The guides are very knowledgable and there are lots...

I'm brazilian and went on vacation to Brazil with my English friends to know the Pantanal. The hostel is excellent, the rooms are clean and airy. The staff were attentive and polite. They all made efforts to speak English with my "gringo" friends. The culinary is local, it doesn't disappoint. Have you ever tried "Piranha soup"? Delicious. But the best...

A contradiction but true. An amazing variety of bird life making a great deal of noise but such a sense of peace. The bungalows may not be the most luxurious but they fulfilled any practical needs and were totally in keeping with the rest of the environment. No idea what the safe charge is about-we were never asked for any...

We had an extraordinary 3 night - 4 day nature adventure in the wet season with water levels rising. Many bird, fish reptile and mammal sightings. Great fun canoeing, motor boating and horseback riding. Comfortable accommodations, good food, excellent service, excellent English speaking guide (Zanie). Very good value, and highly recommended for a down-to-earth wildlife viewing and environment appreciation experience....

Our guide Flávio was friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable about all the flora and fauna we saw. All the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was excellent, plenty of variety catering to all tastes, and the barman, Odiley, made the best caipirinhas in Brasil, and we've drunk quite a few over the years! Beverages and the laundry costs...
