We went to Barranco Alto because our Travel Agency sent us there, and there is absolutely no regret! If you love nature this is a must see! Birds and other animals too numerous to list them all. The lodge itself was first class. We had a big room with our own veranda and view of the little pond. The food... More

We came to Barranco Alto after a week in the northern Pantanal. We came expressly to see Giant Anteaters since it's a great location for that. Unfortunately, we didn't see any but Barranco Alto still blew us away. We flew from Porto Jofre right to Barranco Alto which is the fastest (1 hour) way to get there from the North.... More

We traveled here as part of a two-week tour of the north and south Pantanal arranged by Brazil Nature Tours. We had already spent a week up north and had seen fabulous birds and lots of jaguars. So our primary interest was more birds and land animals. We had also bounced around on some pretty bumpy roads. Our trip from... More

Dear Travelfan, thanks for your review.

If you like small group experiences and getting great bang for your buck, this is the place to stay for excellent wildlife viewing in the southern region of the Pantanal. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and amazingly observant. We saw more wildlife than ever expected on every excursion, of which there are two per day. Definitely a birders' paradise. The...

A friend recommended Fazenda Barranco Alto and it was one of the best recommendations we have ever had. We spent 7 unforgettable nights there. To get there we opted for driving (on the excellent highway - 2 hours approx), then flying the last half hour or so from Aquidauna. We really didn't fancy spending 4 or more hours bouncing around...

Getting to the Fazenda is already a full day's trip, even for those who live in Brazil. We flew in with a light aircraft from Aquidauana, which gives a great overhead view of the Pantanal wetlands and forest. Barranco Alto is located in an area with numerous lakes and a beatifully bending river. Although it is far away from "civilization",... More
