What You'll Do

The Food Safari Bonito & Pantanal takes travellers on a journey to discover these two amazing destinations through the traditional cultures and gastronomy, certainly a lifetime experience.

Located in the middle of the astonishing formation of the Sierra da Bodoquena at Mato Grosso do Sul State, Bonito is known as the premier ecotourism destination in Brazil.

The place shelters fantastic crystal-clear water’s rivers, dozens of caves and caverns, stunning waterfalls and pristine nature: a paradise for nature lovers and adventurers.

The highlights are the river floating /snorkelling tours, but the region also shelters a rich culture that is reflected in its gastronomic productions.

Bonito is located very close to the Pantanal, one of the most pristine environments on Earth. Covering an area of about 210,000 sq km, the Pantanal is the world’s largest wetlands and boasts an extraordinary diversity of fauna and flora in astonishing colourful landscapes.

Pantaneiros are the local people who were born and live in the Pantanal wetlands, and hold traditional culture and lifestyle formed and influenced by different cultures and the peculiar characteristics of such an isolated natural ecosystem.
