SouthWild Pantanal

Pantanal

Rating: Mid-range    

SouthWild Pantanal overview

SouthWild Pantanal, on the Pixaim River, is one of the places to come in the Pantanal if you are a naturalist or wildlife enthusiast.

One of the main attractions here are the Pixaim giant otters. The otter families have been fed piranhas for years and are habituated to the presence of tourist boats. Tapirs visit the centre frequently, and there is a viewing tower at their preferred feeding spot. Late September and October is the best time to view tapir activity from the tower. Patches of gallery forest line the river and are home to 3 species of monkeys - brown capuchin, black and gold howler and silvery (bare-eared) marmoset. The lodge has an observation tower overlooking a jabiru stork nest which is ideal for observing these giant birds up close, and there is also the chance of seeing jabiru storks and eagles along the river.

The lodge has 12 simply furnished rooms with ensuite facilities including hot showers, air-conditioning and 24 hour electricity. Each room has a hammock and seating outside. The lodge also has a screened dining room and lounge area with a bar. There is a small open air swimming pool and deck area with sunloungers, where you can relax. Kayaks are available for clients use, and the lodge has its own stable of horses.

During a stay at the lodge, the activities offered are hikes, cruises on the Pixaim River, horse rides through fields and forests, Transpantaneira truck safaris to see the beautiful Pantanal vistas and caiman-filled pools of Campo do Jofre, and night drives. This is a great area for bird watching and there is a specially designed trail for bird watchers through the centre's forest.

Dave C

"Room 9 was adequate but the shower appeared to present a possible electric hazard, it didn\'t provide heated water - probably disconnected to ensure no lives were at risk. The whole shower area was in need of some TLC. A complaint to Susan< our guide ensured that on our return, room 5 was allotted and this room & shower were OK. "

Mrs Rozanne Wallace
"Lovely rooms and meals"
Janet Buck
"Lovely bright room with good facilities. Welcoming staff and good food"
John David Blake
"On the whole, quite disapointing Not really a wildlife centre. No hides, although we did see otters from the boat and on foot. Flavio was a good guide. We pushed him and persuaded him to take us to see Tapirs at a nearby Mango tree after dark, but despite being promised we didnt get a night drive even though we were there for 4 nights altogether."
Caroline Moore
"Rooms on the houseboat are fairly basic but have everything you need e.g en-suite, air con, power points and the food was excellent. You're not there for the quality of the rooms but to see the wildlife so this was fine."
