BEST TIME TO VISIT

In the Pantanal, Amazon Rainforest & Brazilian Savanna, every month is fascinating and different with beautiful sights to be found
Pantanal Wetlands

​DEC-FEB

The pleasing sunny weather presents crystal clear visibility. The forest gets greener and the river begins to rise and canoeing is possible again on the bahias and small rivers. These are very good months for observing mammals inside the forest. 

MAR-MAY

The most beautiful water scenery is in the months of March through May. Migrating bird from Northern America are now passing in the Pantanal. The flora is blooming, showing marvelous pink flowers of heliconias, bromeliads and orchids.  One of the world's least-known waterbirds, the Least Bittern, is often seen during this season. The river reaches its highest level and mammals that normally hide near the banks can be more easily viewed away from them. This period also offers most beautiful sunsets of the entire year.

JUNE-DEC

Generally speaking, the best time to visit is between 1 June and 31 December. The last half of July and the first half of August feature an astounding wading bird concentration just 15 minutes south of the town of Poconé at some of the first bridges on the Transpantaneira Road. The Giant Otters tend to be visible daily at close range from early June through Dec. The Jabiru Stork nests are active from July through early November.  The most colorful flowering trees are available in July (the yellow-flowering Voychysia divergens) and August (the pink-flowering and yellow-flowering Tabebuia species). So far, our four years of field research have shown that July through November are the best months to see Jaguars on the rivers.

Amazon Rainforest

APR-MAY
This period has the most beautiful mornings of the entire year. A thin layer of mist usually lies above the forest – just below the level of our 50 meter tower - gradually lifting as the sun heats up. Sunsets are commonly spectacular, especially from the Teles Pires River, the tower and the Hilly Trails. Birds and mammals are very active, as many species start to breed. Colorful butterflies are regularly seen at many spots, including the Saleiro Tree house. The river level slowly starts to fall, providing nice conditions for canoeing.
