The Pouso Alegre Nature Reserve is located 135 kilometers from Cuiaba and 28 kilometersalong the Transpantaneira Park Road from Pocone.  A historic former working ranch, since the 1990s it transformed into a nature reserve.  


 The Farm


Occupying an area of ​​8000 hectares that covers various physiognomies of the Pantanal vegetation, the farm where the Pouso Alegre Lodge is located is privileged with an abundant population of mammals, like tapirs, anteaters, and deer, among many others, besides hundreds of species of birds, due to its perfect state of preservation, using ancient cattle ways as a base for the current trails of access to this priceless natural collection.




The meals, in the opinion of guests, are a highlight of the place, elaborated joining typical dishes of the region with other trends of Brazilian cuisine.

Served in a comfortable dining room, the food is prepared in a semi-industrial stainless steel kitchen, meeting all safety and hygiene standards.



The facilities are simple and comfortable, in harmony with the landscape and farm life. There are 24 apartments built, with air conditioning, ceiling fan, screened windows, bathroom with electric shower.

With 2, 3, or 4 single beds, according to their dimensions, the apt. also have shelves, a small table, and a chair.

Note: we have an apartment designed for wheelchair users.




Around the lodge, there are bodies of water and marshes where the morning activity of birds, caimans, and other animals, encourages one to wake up and watch the sun rising outdoors.



A series of trails scattered throughout each sector of the farm gives access to different environments, such as dry forests, flooded forests, savannahs, fields, and swamps, providing the opportunity to sight all kinds of native fauna of the Pantanal. You can choose to do them before or after coffee, or even at dusk (with the exception of those that interfere with observation areas as the waterholes.

At dusk, several species of animals begin their activities, observed by the guests on nocturnal safaris on appropriate vehicles, before and after dinner, along the access road and other routes in transit conditions. With the help of powerful flashlights, you can see caimans, capybaras, deer, foxes, tapirs, anteaters, felines, and others.
