Fazenda Barranco Alto is located within a unique ecosystem of stunning waterways, vast floodplains, water-lily and reed lagoons, salty ponds, shady forest glades and rich savannah grasslands.
The fazenda is a traditional cattle ranch with four comfortable ensuite guest rooms with air-conditioning and private verandas. The remote location and the limited number of rooms make for a truly intimate Pantanal experience. In order to see the most wildlife, guests rise early in the mornings before the sun breaks over the horizon.
It truly is a natural paradise and the accommodation is in keeping with Barranco Alto’s history with the lodge built out of an old cattle ranch dating back to the beginning of the twentieth century. Guests live the authentic experience and are hosted by the latest generation of an old Pantanal family and served traditional food of the region.
Guests can enjoy a number of activities which will include walking tours, photo safaris and night safaris. Each day is different, marked by the Pantanal’s ever-changing panorama of sights and sounds. You will see a wide variety of wildlife and birdlife as well as learning about life on a working farm. All excursions are led by bilingual guides who have a deep knowledge of local nature and regional culture.
