Pousada do Rio Mutum is situated in the Pantanal between the lakes Sia Mariana and Chacorore in the region of Barão de Melgaço within one of the most beautiful areas of the Pantanal in the central state of Mato Grosso (Brazil). Barão do Melgaço is a region comprising more than 11,000 square kilometers, 97% of which remain flooded during the rainy season, and is distinguished by an unusual variety of landscapes integrating hills, lakes, rivers and grassy plains. The Pousada do Rio Mutum lies on the river Mutum, shortly before it terminates into the two "great lakes", of which the larger and more famous one is called Baía de Chacorore, having a diameter of more than 15 km and is easily accessible from the hotel.
The Pantanal of Mato Grosso represents an area of more than 100,000 square-kilometers of nearly untouched wilderness and natural life. During the rainy season (November through April) a significant part of this area is covered by water. As a result, within this vast green sea there remain only a few “islands” where you find isolated Fazendas and Pousadas. The Pantanal is above all a paradise for fish and birds and therefore for fishermen and ornithologists or bird-watchers. There live, however, many other kinds of animals in the Pantanal and you may find crocodiles and jaguars, tapirs, various species of monkeys, deers, capybaras, as well as anacondas and anteaters, and many more.
Pousada do Rio Mutum gives you the opportunity to stay in the middle of the nature including a large variety of wild animals in a secure, comfortably and private setting. From here you can explore this unique eco-system by taking excursions on horseback or by boat to observe the exuberant wildlife of the Pantanal. The Pousada''s cozy chalets are private and located in a natural garden setting. Besides the beauty of nature you will be able to relax and enjoy great moments and in our pool area after your daily tours into the Pantanal jungle.
