“We had a good trip to Refúgio Ecológico Caiman–thank you for arranging it. The variety of animals we saw was impressive–more than on my last trip to the Pantanal. In addition to jaguars, we saw ocelots, anteaters, a tapir, agouti, coatis, capybara, deer, white lipped peccaries and many, many birds.”— Mark Horn, USA
Pousada Amolar is located in the Serra do Amolar mountain range, a protected private reserve with unique species that can only be seen in this region.
About Pousada Amolar
The Acurizal Park is a private reserve created by the Ecotropica foundation in 1997 to support the conservation of the nearby Pantanal National Park. The park extends through more than 13.000 hectares of protected area in the Serra do Amolar mountain range. The Amolar mountain range shows visitors a unique wildlife experience since this is the only place where the Azara’s Night Monkey and the Chacoan Titi Monkey can be seen. In addition it’s one of the few regions in the Pantanal where the giant water lilies can be seen.
The reserve offers basic but comfortable accommodation with only 4 rooms equipped with private bathroom and air conditioning. Due to its remote location there is no phone connection and the electricity is supplied by a generator between 12:00 to 15:00 and 18:00 to 05:00. There is a free wi-fi connection available that can be used by visitors. The reserve is located 5 hrs by boat from Corumba.
At the reserve you can participate in several excursions such as:
- Hikes through its diverse landscape of savannah, forests and elevated grounds.
- Boat excursions are offered to cover a wider area and to visit one of the unique crystal clear water streams that can only be found in this region.
The area is currently managed by the Homem Pantaneiro Institute ('Pantanal Man Institute') an NGO with has a mission to “Preserve and conserve the Pantanal.
You’ll be happy to know that all of the revenue generated by the reserve will be used directly for protection and conservation of the area.
