The Cerrado

Pousada Trijunção

Overview

Safari in the Brazilian savannah

Surrounded by a garden oasis amid the Brazilian Cerrado, you’ll find Pousada Trijunção, a unique safari lodge run by a team committed to the preservation of this vitally important but rarely visited ecosystem. 

The Cerrado is the largest savannah in South America and is home to over 13,000 plant species, 278 reptile species and 850 bird species. One of the biggest challenges the area faces is land loss, which is leaving animals like jaguars, ocelots, giant armadillos and maned wolves extremely threatened. With 87% of Fazenda Trijunção’s land protected, it acts as an important ecological corridor for the Grande Sertão Veredas National Park.

Pousada Trijunção seven comfortable suites embody an ethos of sustainability while the rest of the property includes a restaurant, bar, hot tub and outdoor pool set in beautiful gardens.

    Maned wolf tracking

    One of the approximately 150 animals threatened with extinction in the Cerrado, the maned wolf is the largest canidae native to South America. You can learn more about the research project, which is run together with Associação Onçafari, and see these fascinating creatures up close.

Community & Culture

With the local community totally dependent on tourism, Pousada Trijunção employs its team locally, giving economic value to conservation. The farm on which the lodge is located extends into three different regions and as a result, three cultures combine here. You’ll have the chance to learn about them during your stay.

Conservation

Surrounded by agricultural and cattle farms, Pousada Trijunção aims to increase their popularity globally and as a result also draw wider attention to the various conservation projects in the area. Their goal with creating a profitable operation which has a positive impact on the environment is to encourage others to do the same.

Footprint

Solar panels are used to heat the water at the main lodge, and low energy lighting is used. Other ways they are minimising their impact on the environment is that demolition wood has been used for the flooring on the balconies and in the suites. Most of the interior design elements have been created by local artisans using sustainable materials like bark and branches collected in the region.
