The swamp in Mato Grosso is the ideal place for anyone looking for a tranquil and peaceful place to live. Brazil is very famous for its natural beauty and its “beach culture”, where bikinis and being in shape is the norm. However, if you’re looking for a wonderful sanctuary of flowers and nature, Mato Grosso’s swamp is for sure one of your best options. There you’ll find a rich variety of species living in their natural environment, as well as some amazing inspiring places. The swamp is simply fantastic and is always exhaling colors in its endless horizon. The sunset in the swamp is an unforgettable spectacle and allows the visitors to be in extreme harmony with nature.
Tourists appreciate the spectacular scenery as soon as they get to the wetland. It is not uncommon to find cattle on your way to the comfortable hotels and inns. Besides its natural beauty, the swamp becomes even prettier if you notice good work the countrymen do by taking care of the cattle. All these signs show that Mato Grosso’s swamp is one of the most unique places in the country.
Another attraction in the swamp is the safaris. The tours are usually offered in cars or boats, depending on their location and on how close they are to rivers. The safaris are a great way to get to know a good portion of the animals that live in the swamp, due to its plane wetland and low vegetation. Some animals like the giant anteaters, capuchin monkeys, tapirs and capybaras love to appear for the cameras. Jaguars don’t show up very often, but when they do, they amaze the audience with their beauty and strength.
The swamp is very calm and relaxing. It is perfect for families who want to spend some time together while discovering natural sites and the beauty of the wild. This trip is also highly recommended to couples who want peace and constant contact with a naturally enchanted environment which has the power to strengthen any relationship bond.
Visiting the swamp and exploring the beauty of its fauna and flora is one of the most interesting options for tourists. No matter if you are alone, or with family and friends, this is definitely a great place to meditate and get to know yourself better.
