Located in the flat grasslands of the Pantanal and on the banks of the Mutum River, lies the Pousada Rio Mutum Lodge, a simply beautiful pousada.
Lunches are served family-style and an orientation is given by a naturalist guide, outlining the program of activities available and offer a brief description of the ecology of this fabulous nature reserve.
The Pantanal is a diverse landscape of savannah lowlands, seasonally flooded wetlands (rainy season is from November through March) and rich forested areas. The Pantanal's annual flood/drought cycle causes constant variations in habitat, wildlife and transportation methods. The area around Pousada Rio Mutum is home to abundant wildlife, including caiman, anaconda, ant-eater, capivara and deer. Among the hundreds of species of birds, keep your eyes peeled for hyacinth macaw, and many species of duck, stork and heron.
