Surrounded by floodplains, and with outstanding views, Caiman Ecological Refuge is a 53 thousand hectare ranch in the Pantanal which offers luxury accommodation in this unique part of the world.
This extraordinary wetland in Brazil offers some of the best wildlife viewing opportunities in Latin America. Caiman Ecological Refuge provides 2 stunning properties within its ranch which provide a fabulous mix of comfort and nature.
Both Baiazinha Lodge and the Cordilheira Lodge have all the amenities thats guests could need including a small restaurant, swimming pool, guides, excursions and vehicles. They are 22km apart and accessible by road or light aircraft from Campo Grande.
Cordilheira Lodge has 5 double suites, decorated in contemporary style. Each of these has a separate bedroom and living room, bathroom, powder room and balcony. There is also a pool on a deck, surrounded by the vast expanse of the Pantanal landscape.
Baiazinha Lodge is a bird-shaped house, located on the shores of a lake, with 6 standard rooms decorated in traditional ranch style.
Caiman Ecological Refuge is involved in a variety of important conservation programmes (including 2 successful projects focusing on hyacinth macaws and jaguars). A presentation by the Onçafari team (jaguar tracking) is included in the high season. If you are particularly interested in viewing wild jaguar, an optional specific jaguar spotting day can be organised and we would highly recommend it.
To experience a safari style holiday in Latin America, this is the place to stay.
