Pantanal + Bonito |

8 days and 7 nights

This itinerary allows you to combine the comfort of the Pantanal’s most upscale and well structured lodge – Caiman Refuge with an exploration of Bonito – one of the best destinations in the country for active adventures.

The outdoor and wildlife excursions in the Pantanal organised by local guides, combined with the flotations in Bonito’s crystal clear waters offer a complete immersion into Brazilian wildlife and nature of the region. You start off in the Pantanal where the complex system of waterways explains the richness in fauna and flora. After 3 full days exploring these wetlands, you spend the next 3 even wetter, floating through the crystalline rivers of Bonito, exploring the waterfalls and lagoons in the region.

Although this itinerary is suitable for independent families, depending on group profile and objectives, we can also have one of our Private Hosts leading the trip – hosts add great value to your trip and give you the flexibility to make adaptations to the itinerary onsite. Note: If you are travelling in a group of 10 or more people and appreciate high-level cuisine, we can take a private chef to improve your culinary experience


Caiman Refuge is the most comfortable lodge in the Pantanal. There are daily excursions with the hotel guides after which you can return to the comfort of air conditioned rooms and a swimming pool.

The town of Bonito has dozens of cheap small hotels and unstylish resorts. We like to lodge our guests in a farm, 20 minutes from Bonito where the sensation of being close to nature and away from tourist traps is greatly enhanced.

Who's it for: Ideal for independent travellers and families who have one week to spend on an unforgettable adventure in the wild, without forsaking too many creature comforts.
