Dear Folks,

Welcome to one of the unique region to spot pure nature in the world, the SOUTHERN PANTANAL & BONITO.

PS. Coming from Foz do Iguassu to the Southern Pantanal, we recommend you to come to Campo Grande first where we have our company and here we can give great discounts and also great tips how to save money while visiting other attractions such as Bonito and Corumbá.

  • Our trip to the Pantanal was a truly unforgettable experience. We managed to see 4 jaguars in one day which was extremely lucky. The tour was arranged without a problem by Gil who was kind enough to alter the itinerary according to our needs. The guide Sandro was very friendly and experienced and were very knowledgable. The food was great and vegetarian food is very wellcome. The Panatanal is a must do in Brazil - simply amazing!!!

  • Als deutsche Reiseveranstalter waren wir lange auf der Suche nach der richtigen Agentur für unsere Pananal-Tour. Nach vielen Erfahrungen, Erlebnissen, Abenteuern mit vielen verschiedenen Menschen in der Pantanal-Region sind wir, seit vegangenem Jahr, mit Pantanal-Discovery unterwegs. - Bis jetzt gibt es keinen Grund wieder zu einer anderen Agentur überzuwechseln. Wir sind zehr zufrieden - weiter so!!!  02/2016
