This place has an agenda - to show that ecotourism makes a Jaguar more valuable alive than dead (from a farmer's viewpoint). They have one research that shows the economic affect of jaguar predation of farm animals (0.5-1.5%) whereas the farmer's perception was 10-20% (dominated

Our time at the lodge was filled with amazing safari drives to track and see animals. We saw over 20 species of animals and over 100 kinds of birds there. Our guides, Fabio, Cyhthia, and Chopi were passionate about the refuge, the plants, animals, and efforts to study the

I think it pretty much depends on you. My husband and I went on our own and stayed 4 nights last August. We got a taxi from Campo Grande, (230km) took about 4 hours including a stop for lunch . Cost of the taxi 900brl for the return trip. We ended up being the only people staying in the lodge while we were there so it was lovely. The other lodge on the property was full so we did interact with them for a couple of the activities. There were some game walks, but you can probably talk to them before you go and let them know what you can and can't do. We found them extremely helpful. We've done game parks in Africa too and yes they have jeeps and safari trucks for some of the trips, as well as the canoe ride on the lake. Mostly we saw birds during our trip - beautiful! The highlight was the giant anteater and we loved listening to the formula one frogs :)

"all rooms have a view of the lake"
"The bungalow rooms are larger, but they are separate from the main lodge."
"rooms 4,5,and 6 had a view of the lake"
"All rooms similar"
