Pantaneiro Ride in the Pantanal


Pantaneiro Ride in the Pantanal
Pantanal Brazil
The Pantanal, the largest swampland area in both North and South America, unique in the world, is a perfect area for those who like to ride a horse and get to know its rich variety of flora and fauna. The area has a diversity of ecosystems where it is possible to see fauna like capybaras, caimans, anteaters, armadillos, monkeys and lots of birds.

Over a period of more than 200 years of farming and cattle ranching, the Pantanal’s biodiversity and landscape are basically the same as they were in their ancestor’s time.


This ride is and excellent introduction to the immense flood plains of the Pantanal and its inhabitants - a proud and very hospitable people. The ride explores the beautiful surrounding of two distinct historic ranches - Fazenda Sao Jose and Pousada Pequi.  Riding through its open fields, marshes, caápões, ridges, streams and bays, we encounter a rich variety of lush flora and fauna, typical of a region well preserved. There are several tracks with shorter or longer routes, which can be made during the floods and dry seasons, always with experienced local guides. During a morning or afternoon, you can accompany the cowboys in their work routine with the cattle. Move cattle to other parts of the farm (cattle drive), take care of the calves or see the cowboys working at the corral. It is also a good opportunity to learn a little bit more about the culture and habits of the people from Pantanal. Night safaris and boat tours round up the Pantanal experience.

The ranches are located in a rich area formed by typical wetland vegetation and open pastures with patches of stunted vegetation (cerrado), lakes, lowlands, pond outlets and the Aquidauana River with its exuberant gallery forest. In these uncommon Pantanal habitats, there is a rich flora and exuberant fauna which delights everyone. Those who have the opportunity to visit this hidden tropical paradise in the heart of South America and to experience even for a little while, its wildlife and lush vegetation as well as to get to know the people, will see the world with different eyes.
