Explore the wildlife-rich savannah of Brazil's Cerrado from this small, conservation-focused rustic pousada.

Pousada Trijunçao is a set on a protected reserve in the remote Cerrado, where the blanket of whispering grasslands is interrupted only by patches of dry forest and sparkling clear streams.  Uninhabited by humans, yes, but the landscape, at-first-sight inhospitable, is home to an abundance of wildlife and flora. It’s the perfect base for forays into the savannah in search of native birds and mammals, especially the threatened maned wolf. In harmony with its environment, the accommodation is in rustic low-rise, red-tiled buildings, with just seven guest rooms and suites clustered around a garden and pool. Constructed from local wood and fibre, they are decorated discreetly with traditional handicrafts, but are air-conditioned with modern bathrooms and amenities.

There are lounges with cosy armchairs and hammocks, and an observation tower where you can survey the savannah to a distant horizon. After a day out exploring you have the opportunity to indulge in a massage or soak in the hot tub. The food served is a highlight too, with specialisation in regional recipes – enjoy a barbecue or picnic on the terrace for an outdoor gastronomic experience

What our clients say

  • Highlight: Pousada Rio Mutum, the sun rise trip and evening sunsets. 

    IS, Crowthorne
  • Highlights: Sambadrome and Iguacu

    RB, Reigate
  • Our trip was most enjoyable particularly because of the wide variety of locations and experiences. Difficult to pick out the most memorable - but the Anavilhanas l Lodge was quite outstanding.

    PA, Bourne End
  • The Iguazu falls were amazing.  Brazilia was also a real experience and is undersold - it is a really singular place to visit - the parliament and other buildings are free to visit if you time it right.  Rio was Rio and not to be missed all the highlights are highlights and will never forget visiting Christ the Redemptor on a steaming hot day.  Christmas on Copacabana should be experienced by everyone - forget the turkey in the cold- this is how to live!

    AB, Reading
  • Most Memorable Moment: Spotting 7 Jaguars in Refugio Caiman and Iguacu Falls.    I also had my photo taken with Ronaldinho  on Copacabana Beach. Ha!

    BW, London
  • Expert help in tailoring a holiday that took in the nature of the country (the Amazon), the cities (Manaus, Rio and Salvador) and the idyllic beaches of Bahia - all in a not overly rushed two weeks.
