Day 1 - Upon your arrival at Cuiaba - CGB, one of our dedicated team representatives will be eagerly waiting to welcome you. You will then be comfortably transferred to our hotel in Cuiaba, where you
will spend the night.
Day 2 - Start your adventure with an early breakfast. Our adventure begins as we embark on the Transpantaneira Highway, a dirt road that cuts through the Northern Pantanal and traverses 122 picturesque wooden bridges. Along the way, we will make frequent stops to capture photographs of the abundant wildlife. After our eventful drive, we will arrive at Porto Jofre just in time for a delightful
lunch. Check-in to our hotel, nestled on the scenic riverbanks of the Cuiabá River. In the afternoon, we will set out on our first boat safari, aiming to spot Jaguars and other captivating wildlife along the riverbanks.
Days 3 to 5 - Over the next three full days, we will dedicate ourselves to thrilling boat safaris on the mighty Cuiabá River and its tributaries, maximizing our opportunities to observe and photograph Jaguars, Giant River Otters, and other remarkable creatures in the Meeting of the Waters State Park.
Our safaris will take place during the day, allowing us to cruise the rivers and encounter Jaguars as they approach the banks for sustenance, water, or simply to cool off. After each exhilarating day, we will enjoy dinner and spend the night at our lodge.
Day 6 - Following breakfast, we will transfer to our next lodge where we will spend the next two nights. The journey takes approximately two hours, during which we will have the chance to engage in photography along the way. After settling in and having lunch, we will regroup for a photography session focused on capturing diverse bird species such as the Bare-faced Curassow, Toco Toucan,
kingfishers, Hyacinth Macaw, Buff-necked Ibis, Chestnut-eared Aracari, and many more. If luck is on our side, we may even catch a glimpse of the elusive Agami Heron. This lodge also presents an excellent opportunity to photograph the elusive Ocelot! Our best chances will be in the evening.
Day 7 - Spend the entire day in the vicinity of the hotel grounds, immersed in bird photography. In the evening, we will embark on our final attempt to capture stunning photographs of the Ocelot, culminating our thrilling adventure.
Day 8- After a great adventure full of memories and fantastic photographs, we will go back to the city of Cuiaba for our evening flight home.
This is a very relaxed trip and involves very little walking
