Monday August 9

The day starts in the darkness - full of stars - for a sunrise hike to see and hear nature at its wakening. Visit to a mound-hill where there are many nests of varied birds, including the endemic Hyacinth Macaw, the symbol of the Pantanal: the silent and large Jabiru stork with its huge nest in cooperation with the noisy and small parakeets. After breakfast, a horse ride through the Flooding Fields and to other mound-hills. The horse is the most versatile way of exploring the Pantanal, as the animals are so used to living with them that they don't notice the rider. Lunch at the lodge. In the afternoon we go on a 3 km expedition to the huge 'Baía do Piuval' where we can see a gorgeous sunset with many birds sleeping in the trees surrounding a lake. Optional return in the dark, with another chance to see nocturnal animals.
