It has 60 rooms distributed among 20 bungalows throughout the forest, together with a thatched-roof, open-air restaurant, a private beach, natural swimming pools, and over 10 km. of jungle trails and unusual native fauna and flora.

The lodge is arranged in 20 separate bungalows, or units, and each unit has three rooms with independent entrances and bathrooms, hot showers, air-conditioning, and screened windows. They are rustic yet charming in their decor, and provide all of your basic comfort and safety in the jungle.

Pantanal Wildlife Sanctuary
Deep in the heart of Brazil lies one of the worlds great wildlife reserves, the Pantanal, which can now be seen by a handful of tourists wanting to view nature at her best. Sustained by the floodwaters of the Parana River, this wild and rugged savannah teems with bird and animal wildlife. Visitors can view the wildlife by 4-wheel drive, in canoe or on horseback, while staying in delightful accommodations.
The fauna seen in the Pantanal varies by the seasonal rain and flooding. The wildlife follows the water cycle, so the animals you see will depend upon the season, the animal's cycle and luck! Many of the birds are endemic, but many others are migratory. The dry season typically starts in June and continues through September or even into October. This enormous savanna is in a constant state of flux: each visit rewards the visitor with an ecological adventure beyond description!
