About Caiman Ecological Refuge

Caiman Ecological Refuge is the perfect retreat for a wild, green getaway. It’s the combination of two ecolodges, a cattle ranch and conservation projects, surrounded by the wildlife of the Southern Pantanal. Stay in one of two contemporary lodges – Cordilheira Lodge sits on a wooded hillside, whilst the bird-shaped Baiazinha Lodge is a stone’s throw from a crystalline lake. Both boast their own swimming pool, social area and dining room, complete with wifi, air conditioning and entertainment facilities. 

Make the most of the daily activities accompanied by expert guides. Explore your surroundings with a tour on foot, by canoe or by 4x4. As night falls, venture out for an evening safari – you’re likely to spot plenty of wildlife stirring under the cover of darkness. Take a field trip with the conservation team protecting the brilliant-blue hyacinth macaw, or gain an insight into the inner-workings of the on-site cattle ranch. Here, the natural beauty of Brazil is quite literally on your doorstep.
