Boat Tours

Water is life, and along the shoreline, you will get the chance to get up close and personal with many animals that call the waterways of the Pantanal home.

There’s something about creeping through the swampy heavily forested jungle-like areas trying not to make a sound, in search of what every wildlife you can find.

Bird Watching

You will not have to go on a special tour to do this. Many of the iconic birds can be found around many of the camps in the Pantanal.
