A very nice pousada with comfortable accommodation, very good food (special mention for the piranha soup !) and a superb environment, out of the main way of the Transpantaneira road. An other way to discover the wildlife of the Pantanal.
Many activities are possible hier,...More
It's about two and a half hours away from Cuiaba, the capital of Mato Grosso. The rangers from the poussada picked us up after we landed. Zaine was exceedingly good and was in no rush to get back to the poussada. She suggested that we...More

Hi Louise, Not cut & dried I'm afraid. From the research we did this area seems to be right on the border of the malaria area. We chose to take Malaria pills but the people at the Lodge said there isn't any malaria in the area - not sure how much reliance you can place on their views though!
Re clothing, we felt comfortable in shorts/T shirts, but, in the early morning & evening there are mossies about so we would recommend long trousers/sleeves and repellent for then. Re footwear, we wore sandals/flipflops most of the time, especially around the site and on the boat safari's but trainers & boots when we went out rough walking or on horseback.
Not sure if this really helps as we seem to be saying take everything!! Its a great place though - you should have a really good time.
