We were only able to do a four day tour with Pantanal Nature and I wish we had been able to stay longer. Nevertheless, we saw an amazing amount of wildlife and had a great time.
Our guide, Ailton, was very knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife, especially the birds. He was enthusiastic and seems to enjoy his job a great deal. In addition to his excellent ability to identify birds, he was able to find us a good number of mammals (including four jaguars). On two occasions while driving at night we saw an animal cross the road in front of us (a raccoon and a fox), and he was able to make noises to lure the animal back out onto the road. It was quite impressive. Ailton is one of the best guides I've ever had in terms of knowledge and enthusiasm.
The food and lodging were simple, but more than adequate. The food was a buffet for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The staff was always friendly and we were comfortable.
I would highly recommend Pantanal Nature for anyone wishing to visit the Pantanal.
