From the moment we were collected at the airport in Cuiaba to being dropped off 5 days later this was a truly wonderful experience. The location is magnificent with access to a wildlife paradise,particularly the bird life, but what really made it special for us was the people at Mutum...all of whom were friendly and informative. The guides in particular... More

We came with our 2 boys age 6&8. Given that place quite far from civilisation we were a bit concerned if things will work out and boys will have activities they could take part in. We needn't have worried. Wildlife on the doorstep, lovely guide that kept boys excited with their eyes wide open, eager to spot yet another bird... More

This resort was the perfect pantanal experience. Loved it. Would recommend it to anyone looking to experience the jungles and rivers of the pantanal region. The river and lake system is incredible and the serenity is very peaceful!

Everything worked out well,the accommodations,the area,the jungle treks,and of course the horse riding on very tame horses.The food was tasty and interesting,and the canoe rides were delightful. Also don't omit the great hammock on each cottage porch.

We visited the Pousada do Rio Mutum during the World Cup. They organized everything from picking us up in the airport at Cuiaba to delivering us back for our return flight. We had very good English speaking guides. During our visit we saw more than a hundred types of birds, caymans, caipivaras, and three types of monkeys. We had wonderful... More

I was very well received by the staff. They are super genuinelly kind and made my 3 day experience memorable. There are a bunch of different tours one can take. I specially recommend the piranha fishing and the horse ride. The night spotting was not so interesting, besides the fact that one can see the eyes of the aligators going... More

We live in the south of Brasil and went to The Pantanal for a well-earned two week holiday. The Pousada do Rio Mutum was recommended by a friend who works in tourism. From our first point of contact when we booked our accommodation and organised the logistics of getting from the airport in Cuiabá to the pousada, and payment etc.... More

Set on beautifully maintained allotment right on the edge of the pantanal, the lodge accommodation was very comfortable, food was varied across the 3 days we stayed, guides were friendly and activities fun - highlight: piranha fishing!.highly recommend this lodge.only downside was no jaguars were spotted - best bet is to stay at a camp a few more hours inland...

We were picked up in a mini bus from Cuiaba and joined others heading out to the lodge. The trip takes about 2-3 hours with most of the road paved, but the last 40 minutes is on rough dirt which in the wet is not able to be used and you are transferred by boat. Lucky for us we could... More

I had Cabin #3 which was comfortable. It had a wall air-conditioner that worked pretty well in spite of there being no glass in the windows, only screens.   Be sure to close the shutters if you use the air-conditioner.    The shower had only one working knob, and the water that came out was a comfortable temperature.  You can...
