Fazenda Baia Grande
Reviewed 20 November 2012

We were on the Fazenda in Nov. 2012 and enjojed the whole time.
Alex, the owner of the Fazenda and Adriano, the Guide leaded us to their places in the nature.
Alex explained everything very detailled and gave us a good view about nature, the pantanal and their life on the farm.
The big room was clean with a big bathroom and aircondition.
There was a double-entrance to avoid the mosquitos entering the room.
We also had funny evenings with Caipirinhas made by Alex (speaks english)
Meals are served in an open room. Hot food is kept hot by a fire below. really nice.
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner - everything was delitious and typcal.

Special place where you see lots of wild animals. The people who are working there are kind and helpfull people. The rooms are air conditioned and fine, allthough you will not spend much time there. Breakfast, lunch and diner are good like all food in Brasil

We visited the fazenda end of may 2012 and enjoyed our stay very much. The atmosphere is very relaxed, we enjoyed all the meals and the pool is refreshing. Alex (the owner/manager) and the guide are very nice and relaxed persons. You can get your drinks out of the fridge yourself, write it down and pay when you check out. It's all a matter of trust, which gave us a good feeling. The rooms have airco and are large and clean. The guide took us out three times. Once for bird watching in the late afternoon, a morning trip watching kaymans, capibari's, emoes ans lots of beautiful birds. The guide knows and explained a lot and he showed us animals we would never find and see by ourselves. On our last trip he took us out fishing piranya's, which we fed to the kaymans. A beautiful experience we will always remember. All and all a very beautiful experience in a beautiful fazenda with beautiful people. A highlight of our trip.

We stayed here 2 days in juli. Alex spoiled us by serving good food and company.
It has a very relaxt atmosphere and the blue parrots, toukans and all kinds of birds come even at breakfast.
We ware lucky to see an anteater. The trips by Adriano will we never forget. So near to all kinds of animals.
You can make the most beautifull pictures here. The rooms are simple but effective. Most of the time you live outsite.
We will certainly recommend this place to our friends, and hope to come back once!!

The rooms are basic but fine, the food is simple but good. The owner and guide really try to make your stay a great one. The owner, Alex, took us to a lasso competition, which was great to see. For us the amount of animals you see was a bit disappointing, but you can't control the wildlife. Adriano is a great guide who goes out of his way to show you stuff. Take a lot of repelent, mosquitos are there 24 hours a day.

Fazenda Baia Grande is a large working cattle farm with a small pousada. Two excursions (fishing, horseback riding, day safari, night safari) are offered each day but still leave much time for drinking caipirinhas and reading in the hammocks scattered across the property. Alexander, the owner, was traveling at the time of our visit, but the guide he brought in was hugely knowledgeable and a great storyteller (in English).
The rooms are simple for the price, but this is standard across the Pantanal and one does not come for luxury. The true differentiator of this fazenda compared with others in the region is its small size (in number of rooms, it giant in terms of land). When we visited, there was only one other couple, which made for a very peaceful and relaxed stay.
I would have preferred to stay even deeper in the Pantanal, where the wildlife is even more abundant, but these lodges typically entail an additional flight or 4x4 transfer, and cannot as easily be combined with Bonito, which is well worth a visit. Plus, in the end, we were lucky enough to see many of the notable animals of the region.
In terms of practicalities, I would recommend staying 2-3 nights. Any less and you might miss out on some excursions, any longer and the same excursions become repetitive. We rented a car and drove from Campo Grande, which is certainly do-able, but make sure you get detailed driving directions because once you hit Miranda, the route gets tricky and GPS is no help. We were able to get some pointers from a local gas station, but it only helps if you can speak Portuguese.

If you stay at Fazenda Baia Grande be prepared to really relax and enjoy. The Pantanal is beautiful and the fazenda only adds to it's 'wonderfulness'. Big, simple but comfortable rooms, large bathroom. Good, elaborate meals and fun excursions doable for both kids and adults. The owner, Alexander speaks fluent English, our guide Adrain didn't but if you know some Spanish you can come a long way. But mostly it's pointing out animals and he knows most of those names even in Dutch, so that was convenient for us. But if you would like to have a conversation you should learn Portuguese. Which would be good if you visit Brasil anyway, because hardly anybody speaks a foreign language, really. (Remember, the country is the size of Europe, and everywhere they went, they could speak Portugese, they never had the need to learn a different language, like we do when we leave our small countries...)

If you visit Brasil, make sure the Pantanal is part of your trip, we had a good time experiencing it at Fazenda Baia Grande. It's not cheap, but we felt is was absolutely worth our money.
