After the long journey, arrival at the fazenda located in the Rio Negro region, the most preserved region of the Pantanal, with abundance of wildlife and nature.

Day 3: Fazenda Barra Mansa to Primavera Refuge
We leave early to ride until we reach Capao farm, where before lunch, we will visit an authentic school of Pantanal: Rio Negro School. After a good rest under the trees, we start our journey on horseback along the banks of Vazante Castelo, whose landscape changes as we leave the Rio Negro region. We will ride about 3 hours to reach our Fly Camp Refuge Primavera, which as the name implies, this is a true refuge in the middle of the Pantanal.                                        
This night, you will have a unique experience sleeping in a hammock with lighting lanterns in the middle of Pantanal. The Refuge has a comfortable infrastructure: hall with screens to protect against insects, bathrooms and a kitchen. It is very nice to sleep on hammocks,  for those who don’t like it, we can provide a mattress instead of hammock (need to be informed when book the ride)
