  Pantanal Dynamic High & Low,
Chapada Guimarães, Nobres.

Day 01                                     Cuiabá/ Pantanal Dynamic Low

Pick-up at the CGB Cuiabá airport/hotel and immediate transfer to the traditional town of Poconé with introduction to the geological formation and flora characteristics, then to the lodge, arriving there after a brief safari along the Transpantaneira park-road with many stops to observe its rich fauna. Dinner and night safari through the fields – a night-time drive using a vehicle equipped with a flashlight for highlighting nocturnal fauna, with the chance to observe crab-eating foxes, ocelots, and many caiman’s eyes.


Day 02                                        Pantanal Dynamic Low

In the morning is a walking through one of the many mound-hills, which attracts a lot of mammals among many birds’ nests. In the afternoon is a departure through the fields and forests until a beautiful lake, where is done a boat trip, with the possibility of seeing many birds nesting sites, reptiles and mammals, from the top of the panoramic tower, especially nice at the sunset. Return at the dusk, in a chance to see some night behaved animals, such as Armadillos, Foxes and the many Caiman eyes!


Day 03                                    Pantanal Dynamic Low/ High

In the morning is a horse riding through the flooding fields. The horse is the most versatile means of transportation, allowing both the crossing of the flood plain and access to the distant forests. The ‘Pantaneiro’ horse is extremely docile. Other animals are so used to it that they don’t perceive the rider on the horse. Return for lunch and departure for a terrestrial safari along the Transpantaneira until another lodge. Arrival in time to do a nice and silent non motorized boat trip, through a river, with variation of environments and the possibility of seeing many flocks of birds – including the rare Agami or Boat-billed Herons-, reptiles and mammals such as the Giant-otter, more actives at the sunset. Dinner and overnight.


Day 04                                       Pantanal Dynamic High

In the morning is a silent boat trip through a river, with varied environments and large possibility of seeing the Giant Otters - the 'wolves of the rivers'. In the afternoon is a horse-back riding through the savannah and dense forests, where rare species of animals – such as Tapirs - can be seen. Dinner and a night safari, in a different environment, with large possibility of seen Anteaters, Ocelots and, with luck, even a Jaguar!


Day 05                          Pantanal Dynamic High/ Chapada Guimarães

In the morning is a walking through a dense forest which is home to a large variety of animals including rare birds. Return for lunch and immediate departure to the Chapada Tableland. Having left the Pantanal wetland, where the altitude is about 120 m of sea level, is climbed 700 m in only 200 km for observing a gorgeous sunset into a large panorama that includes the water spring of three very important rivers that form the Pantanal. Then, on to the pleasant town of Chapada dos Guimarães for dinner and overnight.


Day 06                                       Chapada Guimarães/ Nobres

Brief visits to the National Park, with bath in one waterfall and visit to the largest one - Véu de Noiva with it 86 m entering a majestic canyon. Lunch and immediate transfer to the village of Bom Jardim, passing by beautiful rock formations, by the river Manso, with its dam, and by the large Cuiabá river, near to its beginning. Visit to the Macaws’ lake, a water spring surrounded by many palm trees where they roost since the sunset.


Day 07                                             Nobres/ Cuiabá

Departure to do Snorkeling in a water spring, so clear that its blue is broken just with the colorful fishes; then, on the Salobra river, in an extension of 400m, where is observed rich aquatic fauna & flora. Lunch and immediate transfer for Cuiabá (hotel or airport) with drop-off at convenient time.
