History of the occupancy of Pantanal

• 250 years ago, with the first white occupancy, Pantanal was divided into 10 families.

• Traditionally, the son, when he got married, left his parents’ house with an ox cart at sunrise, traveled the whole day and, at sunset stopped the trip and settled to raise his new family.

• Because of that, originally the farms were a travel day apart from each other.

• Until 1976, before the construction of TRANSPANTANEIRA , the whole transportation was done on horseback, ox cart, canoes or on foot. Slowly, with time, the vans and small airplanes appeared, with an airport in Poconé today.
