Comments About Us

My wife and i have just spent 4 delightful days at the Fazenda Baia Grande in Mato Grosso do Sul. Great value and the ideal place to rest. The accomodation is perfectly adequate; the food from Dona Helena, plentiful and varied; Adriano, the guide-cum-cowboy at the ranch is a sensitive, pleasant man, full of interesting knowledge on trees, bird and other wildlife; the owner and host, Alex, is kindness itself; spacious and well-thought out facilities. Some of the richest time we spent there was at the small pool, surrounded by a wide variety of trees, included the ranch's orchard, from 4 to 7 pm, taking in the sunset; there we delighted in the pleasure of the rich birdlife, particularly highly-coloured paraqueets. There are cayman, capyvara, and in the lakes, as well as a number of interesting hawks and owls. I would also recommend one morning getting up earlier to take in the dawn chorus at the pool, despite the mosquitoes. However, the ranch has nothing like the rich wildlife I associate with the Pantanal around the Transpantaneira road to the west of Pocone in the Mato Grosso, directly west from Corumba. In the Pocone region, there are huge flights of egrets, macaw, heron, literally dozens of cayman and capyvara, none of which were available in any great quantities at the Baia Grande in March. Nevertheless, highly recommended for a ' High Pantanal' experience.
