Why we love it
With a such a focus on Pantanal’s natural biome and ways they can improve their conservation and preservation methods further, the guides and people who work in and around the ranch are a fount of knowledge about the livestock, wildlife and the sustainable cycle the ranch thrives on. This refuge can best be explained as the creation of a real world social and nature laboratory in a truly incredible setting.
