What to bring?
After you have booked your tour, you will receive a detailed packing list along with your tour information. It must be used as a guideline for what you should bring. Usually, during all seasons, we suggest light fabrics that are comfortable, good for hot days, and easy to dry. For evenings, cool days, and long boat rides, we suggest long-sleeved shirts and long trousers, which are also advised for protection against bugs and the sun—zip-off trousers are a great option in this case. Different outfit options would be good to have on hand, as the weather in the Pantanal is mostly hot and can be quite sticky. Another 'must-bring' item is sunscreen, as well as insect repellent. Toiletries and personal medication may be difficult to find, especially in the most remote areas, so be sure to bring them.
