Although the lodges are quite basic, they are really what you would expect from such an out of the way place. All of the tours we participated in were really good with the guides being friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. Bird life is incredible. Was a bit disappointed not to see any giant otters...especially as they had been spotted on... More

we loved our time in the pantanal, peaceful but also full of adventure. The lodges were quite basic but in a lovely rustic way, fitting with the location. We had our daughter with us and the room was large enough for us all. We loved the home cooking everyday. Breakfast was slightly basic but we enjoyed the home made cakes... More

This exceeded all my expectations. The accommodation is simple but clean, the food is plentiful, fresh and very well prepared. The activities were varied night safari, horse riding, walking, canoeing.... The wildlife is so varied: caimans, capybara, piranhas, and a wonderful array of birds of every colour, shape and size. The guides are knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. It was a... More

Lovely room, with air con or a fan. Well spread out so you had privacy on your veranda. A hammock and chairs to sit out on. Restaurant had good selection at the buffet meals and bar had Brazilian cocktails (Caipirinha) to die for, at very reasonable prices. Lots of very good excursions, Safari by boat, truck, horseback and walking. All... More

Our time at Pousada Rio Mutum was particularly memorable and enhanced by our guides, Natalie and Bruno. Their extensive knowledge and love of the birdlife and diversity of the area made all the difference in our enjoyment and appreciation of the Pantanal. The other reviews of this property have really covered all that we would say, except that for ourselves,... More

Just finished an amazing experience in The Pantanals at this Eco lodge. The accommodation is very comfortable and spread out so you have some privacy. The rooms are huge and it was lovely having such a huge bed (and decoratively surrounded with mosquito netting). The food was buffet style for all, meals with a wide selection catering to meat lovers... More

We recently returned home from Brazil, having spent 3 glorious days at this pousada. I can't say enough about it. The grounds are simple, but lovely. The cabins had every amenity in a small place. The food was attractively presented. But most importantly was our naturalist, Zaine. She was a huge help throughout our time. In addition, we listened to... More

This lodge is named for the musum bird, one of the hundreds of fantastic avians that populate this lovely resort in the Pantanal. Caimans, crocodiles and capibara roam the grounds. In the morning the birds are your alarm clock. After an excellent buffet breakfast in the attractive dining room, you can hike, go horseback riding, fish, explore the area by... More
