To get to our base in the northern Pantanal we had a long drive; 147k on a dirt track. Along the way we crossed 122 wooden bridges, some more rickety than others. The journey took around 5 hours with a few stops along the way to look at the birdlife inhabiting the many pools alongside the road.
We arrived at Port Jofre late afternoon with the sun fading. Just time to have a very quick look around before freshening up and heading over the restaurant for a welcome meeting, over dinner with the rest of the crew.
