Travel from Cuiaba to Araras Eco Lodge
Transfer from Cuiaba airport to Araras Eco Lodge, a journey of approximately 2.5 hours. The first part of the journey is on a paved road through farms and cattle ranches. After a stop in Poconé, take the Transpantaneira Park Road, a dirt road with flora and fauna of the Pantanal ecosystem along the way.
The Pantanal, or wetlands of Mato Grosso, is one of nature's last frontiers, the world's largest animal reserve, and home to more than 600 different species of birds and 230 varieties of fish. It is made up of a huge lowland plain that is entirely overgrown by lush vegetation and covered with flowers that bloom during the rainy season from December to April.
The Pantanal features many rivers and crystalline lakes, as it used to be a vast inland sea, and rare species of birds and other animals seek shelter along their shores and cluster around the diminishing pools during the dry season from May to November.
The introduction walking tour is the first activity, where the history, concepts and surroundings of the lodge are presented. Over the next few days activities will include guided walks, horse rides, boat trips and vehicle expeditions.
Travel out with your guide to listen to the sounds and observe the behaviour of the nocturnal animals. Star gazing on a clear night is amazing in this remote area.
