The Pousada do Rio Mutum is a home away from home for the true nature lover. It provides the simple comforts of life and a place to relax in between bird and butterfly watching, fishing for piranha, exploring rivers and lakes and wondering at the sheer richness of nature. Considering everything has had to be brought in to construct and... More

The Pantanal is beautiful. You must go!! This place ticks lots of boxes but doesn't do much else. It lacks soul or life or something. Room all air conditioned up and clean, bathroom shiny and water hot, although the arrangement of the bungalows is a bit weird, all equally spaced out in a regimented format. Food - perfectly edible, but... More

We had the most wonderful time here; great trips out on the river, horse riding, fishing and (for me) a scary dawn trip in a canoe along the river, surrounded by Caimans (once dawn broke I was fine again). We saw lots of fabulous birds and animals I had never even heard of, for example the capybara, and our guide... More

My partner & I were joined with one other couple for our 3 night Pantanal adventure. Our guide, Zaine, was superb! We could not complain about our room, everything was very clean! The lodge grounds are large and neat with a variety of bird life in the trees. Activities were fun - sunrise canoeing, motor boat sunset tour, including piraña... More

The minibus ride from Cuiaba took well over 3 hours, and is pretty uneven for the final 90 mins. Overall we enjoyed this wildlife and wetland experience, cheek by jowl with all sorts of creatures, but not, alas, jaguars. The bird life is diverse and easily accessible while we managed to see cayman (not difficult), a tapir and a giant... More

The Pentenal Wetlands affords a wonderful experience for anyone who loves wildlife, well-organized activities, good food, relaxing, and just plainly enjoying life in a remote setting. Internet was available and free; the connection wasn't strong, but then again, holidays are for getting away from it all. My favourite memory is from a very early morning paddle boat ride, slipping noiselessly... More

I likened this hotel to a wildlife bootcamp, but in a good way. When you arrive you are allocated a table in the restaurant, which has your name on it and remains yours for the entirety of your stay. Every evening and every lunchtime one of the guides will come round and tell you which activity you will be doing... More

We loved Flavio. He is from a remote Indian tribe and is so good in nature, spotting different kinds of wildlife. We loved his gentle nature. He is equally comfortable in English and Portuguese. We liked the Pousada a lot. Rooms were clean and well kept. The food was good. Internet connection is Very spotty.

After spending 5 days at the Pousada do Rio Mutum the Amazon was an anti-climax. Neither in Central America, Africa nor the Amazon have we ever seen birdlife like this. The highlight for us was the dawn paddle on the River, listening to the jungle awake.

This is a wonderful place to stay. The bungalows are well equipped and very comfortable with hammocks outside to make it the perfect place to relax. The wildlife trips in the area are second to none and if you are after birdlife you could not pick a better place as the guides and baotmen are amazing spotters and you wont... More
