Description

Pousada Rio Mutum has a superb location, nestled between the lakes of Sia Mariana and Chachorore in one of the most beautiful regions of the Pantanal, surrounded by hills, lakes, rivers and grassy plains.

Scattered amongst the Pousada's extensive tropical gardens are the twenty two simple yet comfortable cottage-style guest rooms. These are decorated in a cosy traditional style and all have private bathrooms and verandas with hammocks, perfect for relaxing and watching the many species of birds flitting amongst the trees. There is also a spacious outdoor swimming pool, a terrace bar, small shop and a restaurant serving regional specialties.

The Pantanal is home to countless species of birds and mammals, making it a true paradise for nature lovers. Horse ride through dense forests, hike trails immersed in nature, watch alligators basking in the sun and take a canoe trip through the wetlands at dawn to view the fauna, which may include otters, tapir and iguanas. Expert bilingual guides lead all the excursions and activities from the pousada and will ensure you get the most out of your stay.

Fishing is also an important activity in the area, with piranha, dourado, barbado and pintado to be found, amongst others. Pousada Rio Mutum has first class boats for fishing expeditions and experienced pilots familiar with the region. .

Location & Directions

The Pantanal, Brazil

Pousada Rio Mutum sits beside the Mutum River, in Pantanal, the largest swampland in the world and one of South America's top wildlife destinations.

When to go

The Pantanal has two distinct seasons, dry and wet. During the wet season (November-April) guests will find the region in bloom, with lush vegetation and flowers, however the rains can make some areas tricky to reach, it is very hot and humid and some lodges do close at this time. We feel the best time to visit is during the dry season (May - October), which is the peak season for viewing wildlife, when rare species of birds and other animals seek shelter along the riverbanks and can be observed more easily.
