My cousin and I booked the pantanal tour through papaya as we knew we were staying there in bonito and didn't really know what to expect, but it was the most incredible 4 days of our lives! Carlos, Raffael and the guide looked after us to absolute perfection from the moment we left on the first day to the final day saying goodbye. Words cannot describe the care and attention that Carlos put into making it such a memorable experience for us both, catering to our every need. On the second day you drive deep into the pantanal and go really off the beaten track where there were no other tourists and stay in a authentic family-run farm. The sunrise walks, the wildlife (we were lucky enough to see a puma) the birds, the food, the evening caprianahas and wine, exotic fruit tasting, jewellery making, piranha fishing, night safaris, the constant stream of information - it was all utterly incredible and professional. We really couldn't have asked for more and so pleased we payed the little bit more to go off the beaten track and experience the true pantanal away from other tourists and with Carlos, who was so knowledgeable and his passion infectious! The pantanal tour was the best experience of South America, if not our entire lives... Thank you Carlos for making it so memorable!
Carlos auch noch Touren in kleinen Gruppen mitten ins Pantanal an, dorthin wo keine der kommerziellen Touren hinfährt. Ein einzigartiges Erlebnis und nur zu empfehlen. Ihr könnt auch euer Wunschprogramm mit Carlos zusammenstellen (Anzahl der Tage, Aktivitäten etc.).
We decided to go to the Pantanal from there. Carlos and his brother Raphael (both born in the Pantanal) organized an amazing Pantanal trip with their own Truck. We saw hundreds of animals and slept on a farm in the middle of the Pantanal where no commercial tour is running. no other tourist and just local people and cowboys from the real pantanal. We had a lot of fun together, best time in Brazil. If u want a real individual trip go to Papaya tours Pantanal in Bonito with Carlos and Raphael!!!!
