The way to our refuge
Our address is: Estância Caiman, (unspecified number) – Zona Rural. We are located in the municipality of Miranda, Mato Grosso do Sul.
There are two airports close to the refuge. The main one, with most flight options, is Campo Grande (Mato Grosso do Sul): it is 236 km (150 miles) away, approximately a 3.5 hours road trip. The other one is Bonito, with fewer flight options, but closer: it is 182 km (113 miles) away, about a 2.5 hours road trip.
The journey from Campo Grande to Caiman by car includes a long stretch of dirt roads, which low ground clearance cars don’t handle so well.
Most of the way there is no internet and GPS navigation apps may be of little use. Therefore, we recommend that you enter the destination in the GPS before the start of the trip and follow the directions below.
Due to the many animals that live freely in our refuge, it is not possible to drive inside Caiman. Guests’ cars are parked near the reception.
