Pouso Alegre is a countryside lodge located at Poconé at marker 33km on the Transpantaneria Highway. Situated in a traditional Pantanal cattle farm, within 11.000 hectares (27,000 acres), this area has a great diversity of preserved Pantanal landscapes.
The simple but comfortable accommodations are in harmony with the landscape and a farming lifestyle. The lodge offers 18 bedrooms, equipped with air conditioning, mosquito nets, window screens, a fan and a bathroom.
There are no introduced species so you find traditional flora and fauna. There are large flooded fields of native grass, several kinds of forest and permanent and temporary water bodies. During both drought and flood, you can horseback ride to rarely visited places or explore via canoe. Animals such as cayman, capybara, monkey, anacondas, deer and many different bird species can be found in the wild natural habitats. The lodge grounds also offer a wide range of birds including the hyacinth macaws, toucans, cardinals and the bird symbol of Pantanal, the jabiru stork. The combination of limited capacity, easy access, delicious typical food and peaceful ambience make of Pouso Alegre a great option for exploring the Pantanal.
