Welcome to the Pantanal!
You land at Cuiaba airport and are greeted by your English-speaking guide, before being transferred to the Jaguar House Boat.
You will then hit the road to reach Pocomé, a small village serving as the entrance door to the Pantanal. You will keep going towards Caceres. Even on this first road in the Pantanal, you will have the chance to spot many different animal species.
Alligators rest under the sun on the lagoon banks, capybaras walk around in complete freedom, and multicolored birds observe your vehicle as it raises dust on its way. Reach the Jaguar Houseboat and settle into your accommodation. Spend the remainder of the day relaxing.

Enjoy the Wildlife of the Clarinho River

With some luck, you can spot a family of ariranhas (giant otters) fishing, playing and teaching the babies to swim and fish. You will also have the chance to go fishing for the elusive Piranha, known for nibbling the bait off the hook without the fisherman noticing. Lambaris, another species of freshwater fish are an easy catch and are delicious when barbecued.
A picnic barbecue lunch will be prepared at the campsite. Return to the lodge at the end of the afternoon.
Today begins with a very early start to see the sunrise from the top of Mirante da Garça (Heron’s Tower). Listen to the sounds of the birds leaving the nests for the day and the rising sun touching the vegetation.
