This is not about this camp. It is about the guy whose passion makes it worthwhile staying here. I was in Pantanal visting at the wrong time of the year in 2011, yet Ailton Lara ( Tracker for Discovery Channel and Panthera) gave me such a wonderful program that I went back in Nov 2016 to find the Jaguar.

Staying at Jaguar Camp right on the river and in the heart of the Pantanal is a amazing experience. If you are going to the Panatanal then this is THE place ! Over two and a half days we saw 7Jaguars including a mother and her two cubs swimming across the river :-) The wildlife of course is much wider... More

Highly recommend this trip. I spent 3 days at this lodge. Lodge:The accommodation was simple, clean and fuss free. Beds were made daily and bathroom was cleaned. Staff were so friendly.

Near the end of the Transpantaneira Highway the camp is situated a few hundred metres from the river and was a perfect place to start our jaguar searching expeditions. We booked through Pantanal Nature who also own the property. The rooms are "rustic" but are comfortable enough. They have air conditioning which is remarkably effective and the communal area has...

The place is really nice, in the middle of the Pantanal. Ailton is always worried about the people staying there and looking for our experience to be the best one. He knows a lot about the region and learning from him was incredible. We even got an improvised concert from him did after diner. We did the tour the next... More

I visited many places throughout the Pantanal, and Jaguar Camp was by far my favorite. It is comfortably rustic, fitting well into the surrounding wilderness. The jungle setting is really lovely, so near the river, the vehicle they provide is not really necessary. It is very clean, safe and cozy. The staff is remarkable, attentive, friendly, and helpful. The food... More

Had two nights here with our Teenage Sons. The accommodation was basic but clean and comfortable so provided all we needed. Complimentary water was very welcomed, the food was good and the staff great. This is a small friendly lodge with only 6 rooms so quite boutique.

Its rustic, but you expect that being this far off and honestly for where it is its actually quite good (air conditioning, tile floors, etc). But where this goes downhill is that when the owner is gone things run poorly. The food is poor, the doors are locked to limit access to water, and everyone working at the camp avoids... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during our Pantanal tour. We came with our private guide. The accommodations are basic due to the nature of the place. The camp is very clean, food was good, the cook baked a cake every day. Staff was nice and friendly.
