Our morning adventure consists of climbing down 900 steps to the base of the Boca da Onca Waterfall – the highest waterfall in this Brazilian state. We enjoy a refreshing swim in some of the nearby waterfall pools and then head to lunch. Most of us opt to ride back to the farm in a jeep, while several opt to climb back out by a different stairway consisting of about 1,500 steps.
After lunch we have a drive of several hours to reach the Pantanal Wildlife Reserve. As we approach our destination, we catch a spectacular sunset.
After checking in at our fabulous lodge, we enjoy dinner and then embark on a night safari.
We had a great view of an ocelot, but I’m still getting familiar with a new camera and I missed the shot. Hopefully I’ll improve my timing in the days to come!
