DAY-BY-DAY ITINERARY:

1st. Day: Arrival at the Cuiaba Airport and reception by our guide. Transfer to Serra das Araras. The spotlight here will be the spectacular Harpy Eagle. However, the Mother Nature can reserve other surprises for us in this particular region that is an area of transition between the Cerrado (similar to  the African Savanna) and the imposing Amazon Rainforest.

2nd. Day: In the morning we will watch the Harpy Eagle, looking for the best shot. After lunch, transfer to the Pantanal. Once our vehicle reaches the Pantanal floodplain, we will be driving in a pace that allows us to look for the wildlife along the road and make as many stops as necessary to take incredible pictures or only appreciate it. We hope to arrive at our first lodge at the Pantanal, by the end of the day. Check in, followed by dinner. Overnight.

3rd. Day: Early breakfast and motor boat ride along the Pixaim River, searching the Pantanal wildlife on the river banks, in the water or on the sky, sometimes you don’t know in which direction you should point your lens. Everything seems beautiful and interesting. After lunch we will check out and begin our driving to the end of the Transpantaneira dirty road – Porto Jofre. If until this moment we didn’t get to see the Jaguar, we should be very anxious. Check in. In walk at the Hotel nearby, we might use a powerful spotlight to search for nocturnal wildlife. After returning to our lodge, we will have dinner and a deserved rest.

4th. and 5th. Day: Two full days exploring the Pantanal by motor boat. After our breakfasts, we will a boat ride up & down stream, searching for Jaguars and other mammals such Giant River Otters, Capybaras and the rare Tapir, among several species of  birds and reptiles. During these days we will have a break to return to the lodge and enjoy our lunch and also take a rest. Don’t worry, you won’t miss anything, our magnificent felines use to take a nap during the hottest hours of the day. Dinner and overnight.

6th.Day: Breakfast followed by check out. Transfer along the Transpantaneira to another lodge at the Pantanal, with lunch in route and stops along  the road, for more photos of widlife.  We shall arrive at this new lodge by the end of the day. A Sunrise Photo Session is on the schedule!!! Check in.  Dinner.  Overnight.
