Araras Eco Lodge
This charming and rustic lodge in the northern Pantanal has been built in harmony with the natural environment and provides a comfortable base for a three-night wildlife adventure. Wake to the sound of birdsong and enjoy an early breakfast on the deck before setting out with a naturalist guide to explore the world's largest tropical wetland area. In keeping with the lodge’s eco-friendly ethos, group sizes are kept to a maximum of ten guests during activities such as birdwatching, hiking, canoeing, horse riding, piranha fishing, photo safaris and night tours.
Cool off from the midday sun in the small pool or in a hammock on the shady terrace. Follow walkways to one of the lodge’s observation towers and keep an eye out for wildlife such as hyacinth macaws, howler monkeys and coatis. These treetop lookouts are also a great spot for catching the spectacular sunrises and sunsets over the wetlands. The restaurant serves hearty local cuisine with a buffet of meat, fresh fish and organic vegetables to keep your energy levels up and you can reflect on the day’s adventures with drinks on the terrace. The simply furnished rooms feature air-conditioning and you can sometimes spot wildlife right outside your doorstep!
