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

The Pantanel is a spectacular and unique environment and the lodge is in a beautiful setting by the water, in among the birds and animals with high quality accommodation, excellent food and attentive staff. On arrival at Cuiaba airport we were transferred to the lodge in a comfortable minibus. We stayed for 3 nights and took all the excursions by... More

A wonderful lodge in the Pantanal. Excellent staff. Lots of activities to see wildlife and beautiful land. Alicia, the owner, is a treasure. She has invested in the community and brought many opportunities to the local tribes and villages. WiFi in the reception room / map room area.

If you are looking for insect free luxury, opulance and indulgence, them give this place a miss. We were not, we wanted a comfortable place in the Pantanel, ecofriendly and and wildlife obessed, this ticked all the boxes. The transfer should have taken 3.5 hours, instead it took over four hours, the driver stopping frequently to point out the ombundance... More
