The accommodation is a typical farm, the fazenda has been family-owned for over 150 years and now also accommodates tourists in addition to the traditional cattle breeding. On various excursions and safari tours by boat, horse or on foot, travelers can experience the unique nature of the Pantanal.
Day 1: Campo Grande - Drive to the South Pantanal
Pousada Aguape, a typical fazenda in the middle of the unique landscape of the southern Pantanal, has been family-owned for 150 years. The arrival via the airport in Campo Grande takes about 3 hours. Depending on the weather conditions, part of the journey will be made by boat.
The ecosystem of the Pantanal is one of the most important in Brazil. Many unique and endangered plant and animal species live here. The Pantanal is especially famous for its abundance of fish and numerous bird species. The accommodation offers numerous excursions, but the weather conditions and the season (spawning and breeding seasons) must be taken into account. The night safaris are perfect opportunities to observe nocturnal species from close up. With some luck, foxes, capybaras, anteaters, and caimans are sighted on this occasion.

After a typical breakfast we go for a ride through open fields, swamps and numerous creeks in the morning. On this excursion, the visitor encounters a lush flora and fauna.
