Accommodation

 
SouthWild Pantanal
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.
 
Hotel Deville
ok for a night, Hotel fine but area bad.
 
Cristalino Lodge
We had the end cabin . Very nice with own patio. Pleased we were not in the four blocks, which had no viewing windows or patio.
 
Marina Palace Hotel
Right on the beach with Frigate birds flying overhead. Good walks to Botanical gardens and along to Copacabana.
 
Hotel das Cataratas
Everything we expected and more. Similar to Vic Falls Hotel. Especially good is the fact that you have the Park to yourself before 9am and after 6pm. We spent hours at dawn and dusk on the road mammal and birdspotting. Strangly enough we never met any other guests doing the same.Maybe we are just different !
