So a friend of mine is going with his gf to Brazil, and is looking to spend a few nights in the Pantanal. They’re not huge wildlife enthusiasts like me, but they will definitely enjoy seeing the “big game” stuff, as long as they have a somewhat luxurious place to relax at the end of the evening.
I myself have only been to Northern Pantanal, but when we looked together at Jaguar Ecolodge, he said his girlfriend wouldn’t like staying there. So I was thinking:
What lodge would be the “best bet” for seeing Jaguars, Giant Anteaters and hopefully Tapirs and Otters over a 3-4 nights stay, that also has a nice feel to it?
For some reason I had thought Caiman Ecolodge was a good place, but I don’t see any reports from there on this site. And regarding Fazenda Barranco Alto – I saw at least a couple of reports that didn’t see jaguars while staying there.
I have some other palces I was thinking (Araras Lodge or Pouso Alegre in N. Pantanal) but anyaway – I will let you answer instead of making this a multiple choice question.
He’s going in End of Sept/Beginning of Oct.
Thanks in advance!!
