Mae Bonifacia Park

Reviewed By RHAHJ - Nijmegen, The Netherlands

I stayed a day in Cuiaba before embarking on a tour to the Pantanal. My plan to visit the chapada dos Guimaraes park was thwarted because of fires raging there, so I decided to stay in Cuiaba. Since I stayed close to this park, I visited it three times. The first time was around 15.00 at the day of my arrival, and I was pleasantly surprised first by seeing a nunbird, then a trogon, then some bare-faced ibises, then some lizzards, again a trogon, an antwren (I think) and finally some agoutis. The next morning I visited around 7.00. This time I noticed mainly the monkeys, and also a cuckoo I think, and some bluish tanagers drinking at a central spot in the park. Many people jogging at this time, which may make the morning a less ideal time to see wildlife. My last visit around 16.00 didn't yield anything new. I just saw agoutis and monkeys again, and noticed the ibises in a tree in the distance. Generally a very good place to see birds and other wildlife. The park is mostly used by joggers. Pets and cycling are understandably forbidden. There are mopeds in the park though and I think cars are allowed too, as long as they stay under the 10 km speed limit. I think it is a pity that the many trails have all been asphalted. Maybe this is to minimize the risk of joggers falling, but this does not weigh up against keeping the space natural. I also think there are plenty of instruments for exercises around the park - hope they don't put more there.

Fizemos alguns passeios, entre eles a caverna Aroe-Jari, a Ponte de Pedra entre outros, com o Guía Pablo Peres, Cel: 65-992950665. O Pablo é um guía sensacional, muito culto, profundo conhecedor de botânica, arqueologia e de cada cantinho que visitamos. Além de tudo, ele é bem-humorado, paciente e muito preocupado com a segurança de seus clientes. Recomendo fortemente o Pablo como guía para toda a região da Chapada dos Guimarães.

Me and my girlfriend went on two hikes here, a shorter waterfall hike with 8km walk and a longer 21km hike up Morro sao Jeronimo where the views were incredible. Rodrigo was a great guide, was very knowledgable and spoke excellent English. We would recommend to all visitors.
