This culinary tour takes place in South Pantanal, Brazil. The Pantanal is known worldwide as the number one wildlife destination in Brazil.

Pantanal's main attraction is its people and culture: the cowboys lifestyle and traditional techniques to conserve food and to survive during the wet season when they get isolated.


You will be provided with daily meals as per the itinerary. Pantanal cuisine is superb. Delicious dishes cooked in the wood stove are the base of a traditional gastronomy, which keeps its origins and attributes. Beef is food’s main attraction in a culture established in cattle ranching properties,

and it is certainly sensational. But healthy fresh vegetables, tropical fruits and other tasty complements composes a variety of flavors in many different stupendous typical dishes.

Among the most traditional ingredients, the manioc – a Brazilian typical root - is used and cooked in several ways, part of almost every meal. We cannot forget about the tereré, a typical drink made with the yerba mate, which the Pantanal people take everyday in the meantime of their meals.
