Upon arrival at the lodge, we will get settled in and then enjoy a nice dinner.
Over the next couple days we will explore this amazing region, the world’s largest floodplains, on foot on an ecological walk through forest and over plains, on a land safari in a 4×4 vehicle through Pantanal da Nhecolândia to observe wildlife, on a water safari by boat through the flooded plains, and by boat late afternoon to observe nocturnal animals. We will also have a chance to fish for piranhas, and enjoy a leisurely float along the rivers.
Day 2: Pantanal, Brazil
Throughout your stay in Pantanal, you will enjoy meals as you join in a variety of activities.
There will be boat trips along the river, night safari by boat, artisanal fishing activity, walking tours, jeep safaris, alligator spotting and canoeing. No matter what you do you are sure to have fun! Make sure you are camera-ready as during your excursions within this large freshwater floodplain, you will get plentiful opportunities to observe native wildlife such as alligators, capybaras, armadillos, jaguars and a wide variety of birds.
A local bilingual guide will accompany us on all tours.

Day 7: Foz do Iguacu, Brazil
Iguaçu National Park, established in 1939, hosts the largest amount of preserved Atlantic Forest in southern Brazil.
Parque das Aves is an essential tour for those who visit Foz do Iguaçu. Here we experience direct contact with more than 1320 birds, covering about 143 different species. They are 16.5 hectares of exuberant Atlantic Forest maintained to form the best habitat for animals. This is not a walk like any other, it is a unique and unforgettable experience in which we will find incredible birds from the four corners of Brazil and from different parts of the world, many of them threatened. We will enter the immersion nurseries to feel the blow of the wings of the vibrant araras and look into the eyes of a toucan. Then we visit the traditional walkways with a wonderful panoramic view of the Brazilian falls. The total length of the runway is 1200 meters from which you get a spectacular panoramic view of the 275 waterfalls that make up the Iguaçu Falls; the most important on the Brazilian side are four: Floriano, Deodoro da Fonseca, Benjamin Constant and Salto União or the Devil’s Throat.
Once finalized the route we arrive at the panoramic elevator that returns to the vehicle to complete the itinerary.
Day 8: Foz do Iguacu, Brazil
Recognized among the seven natural wonders of the world, the Iguaçu Falls are the most visited natural attraction in the province of Misiones and one of the most impressive of Argentina and the world.
Walking paths with different gateways offered by the Park may have a different view of the falls’ amazing scenery. The lower circuit allows more contact with nature, while the upper circuit gives an overview of all the jumps and the delta islands, and the impressive view of the Devil’s Throat, where we feel the fury of water falling in many horseshoe shaped falls.
Day 9: Foz do Iguacu, Brazil
