Hotel Overview


Caiman Lodge is in the Southern Pantanal, a 4 hour drive from Campo Grande.

Rooms at Caiman Lodge

Spread out on the huge plot of land are Caiman Lodge, Cordilheira Lodge, and Baiazinha Lodge. These can be booked exclusively for groups, whilst couples can book out the spacious suites. Inside you’ll find airy beamed ceilings and wonderfully wild details, but it’s the private decks and pools that make them so special. Overlooking the vast wetland, accompanied by all its chirrups and chirps, you’d struggle to find a more captivating place to sunbathe!

Food and Facilities

Whether you’re swooping down on Caiman Lodge’s private landing strip, or shimmying up the stilted bird-hide, everything here is designed to plunge you into your unique surroundings. Almost exciting are the local ingredients used in the food, including homemade breads, beautifully exotic fruits like pequi and soursop, and (the chef’s speciality) fresh piranha soup!

Activities at Caiman Lodge

Because there are just three lodges here, you’re guaranteed a unique and personalised Pantanal safari. During the day, you can glide into the dark waters in a dug-out canoe (perhaps doing a spot of piranha fishing on the way) as the guides talk you through the myriad of wildlife. Look out for anaconda, giant ant-eaters, and the lodge’s namesake: the crocodilian Caiman. The real adventure, though, begins at night when you’ll go ‘spotlighting’ for the elusive jaguar.
