The Araras Pantanal Eco Lodge team understands the importance of this ecosystem and is the keeper of this paradise.

The heartland of Brazil, covering an area equal that of Western Europe (2,000,000 km² / 1,242.7 mi²), is called “CERRADO” and is considered the richest savanna in the world, due to a high diversity of plants and endemism. Most of Brazil’s big rivers’ sources are here. It’s an area of ecological importance and spectacular beauty like the “Chapada dos Guimarães” National Park, only 55 km / 34.17 mi. Northeast Cuiabá. The enormous biodiversity includes something like 837 bird species, 161 mammals, 120 reptiles and over 10,000 vascular plants, of which 44% are endemic.
The mythical Amazon can only be described in superlatives. It covers an area of more than 5 millions square kilometers of witch 80% is on Brazilian territory and those spread in 8 States, one of witch is the State of Mato Grosso. It is the largest and most intact rain forest region in the world. Through this large area, flows an extensive drainage system of more than thousand rivers, which account for 20% of the world’s fresh surface water.
7 Nights Cristalino
The horse and its rider form a superb working team: a horse that has undergone a series of adaptations and its rider, the hardy cowboy (called peão in Brazil)
that rides this challenging ecosystem year round, regardless of the water level.
A small frame, steady pace and gentle to handle, but with strong and well developed chest muscles that come to full power when caught in the mud. Its small hind is surprisingly agile allowing a firm push to clear any obstacle.
