Proposal
 
 
 
This program is available only "upon request" due to eco-system conditions and is suggested for people who loves Bird watching and eco-tourism. It is considered a Moderate Level Program.

The Pantanal Matogrossense, Brazil, represents an area of more than 100.000 square-kilometers of nearly untouched wilderness and natural life, which, during the rainy season (more about Pantanal's seasonal cycles) is to a great part covered by water. Within this vast green sea there remain only few "islands" where you find the isolated Fazendas and Pousadas. On the Fazendas people are breeding cattle. The word Pousada literally translated means "resting place".

The Hotel, Pousada do Rio Mutum, is situated in the Pantanal in the region of Barao de Melgaco within one of the most beautiful areas of the Pantanal in the central state of Mato Grosso (Brazil). This region of the Pantanal is distinguished by an unusual variety of landscapes integrating hills, lakes, rivers and grassy plains. The Hotel Pousada do Rio Mutum lies, as its name indicates, on the river Mutum, shortly before it terminates into the two "great lakes", of witch the lager and famous one is called Baia de Chacorore, having a diameter of more than 15 km and is easily accessibly from the hotel.

Pousada do Rio Mutum gives you the opportunity to stay in the middle of the nature including a large variety of wild animals in a secure, comfortably and private setting. Explore with us this unique eco-system in our "charming hotel" were our friendly staff makes our lodge a very special and unique experience. Our cozy chalets are private and located in a natural garden setting. Besides the beauty of nature you will be ably to relax and enjoy great moments and in our pool area after your daily tours into the Pantanal jungle.
