Pousada Trijunção is, above all, a conservation project.

Sustainability Policy


The Cerrado: 

  • It is responsible for producing 70% of Brazil's water;
  • Behind only the Amazon, it is Brazil's second largest biome in territorial terms;
  • It is considered to be the most biodiverse savannah in the world;
  • It brings together indigenous ethnic groups, quilombolas, geraizeiros, ribeirinhos, babaçueiras and vazanteiros; 
  • It has 2,500 species of animals and 12,000 of plants.

Despite the clear need to conserve all of these attributes, the rate of deforestation in the region grows every year. In 2023, for example, 6.36 thousand Km² (close to the size of Macapá) of deforested area in the territory was recorded in the space of one year (Inpe, 2023). Pousada Trijunção is integrated into the territory with the aim of promoting regenerative tourism and, through our experiences of direct contact with the local fauna and flora, making each traveler a guardian of the biome. 



REGENERATIVE TOURISM presupposes, besides the implementation of good practices that improve the territory, the participation of the whole tourism chain in the integrated planning process: 

  • To increase the positive impact of tourism; 
  • Provide reconnection, interaction with the environment and ecosystems, and stimulate observation and awareness; 
  • Foster a sense of identity and respect for the region; 
  • Promote greater socio-economic inclusion and well-being of communities and visitors;
  • Promote restoration of the landscape, ecosystems, watersheds (e.g., springs) and biodiversity;
  • Provide transformative experiences in terms of visitor interaction with local community and culture and hands-on learning;
  • Provide moments of self-awareness. 

Trijunção Farm

Located in the border of the states of Bahia, Goiás, and Minas Gerais and in contrast with the agribusiness push in the region, Fazenda Trijunção was founded in 1995 with the goal of investing in sustainable productive activities, coupled with improved life quality of the adjacent communities, and biodiversity preservation initiatives. 

There are 33,000 hectares and almost three decades dedicated to conservation projects and research initiatives, in partnership with organizations such as Onçafari and Embrapa, which today contributes to the formation of an ecological corridor with the Grande Sertão Veredas National Park. 

The farm keeps more than 90% of its territory entirely preserved, including 12,000 hectares integrated into the park, ensuring that animal species in a vulnerable situation or even at risk of extinction, such as the Giant Anteater (Myrmecophaga tridactyla), Maned Wolf (Chrysocyon brachyurus) and Jaguar (Panthera onca) live free, protected and reproducing. 


At Pousada Trijunção, practices with the aim of having a positive impact on territorial development, environment and local economy are implemented on an ongoing basis: 

Solar panels for water heating;
LED lighting;
Use of demolition wood on balconies and suites;
Decoration with the work of local artisans;
Staff and services provided by local residents;
Our restaurant is supplied by the farm's vegetable garden;
We are reducing the use of plastic in our operations. For example, the bags in the toilets have been replaced by kraft paper bags;
For water consumption, we use clay filters so that guests can refill their bottles, avoiding the use of single-use packaging;
We separate organic and recyclable waste and dispose of it correctly;
Our gift shop is aligned with regenerative tourism: we buy products from the Artesol cooperative, a non-profit organization that promotes brazilian handicrafts and generates income for small artisans throughout the country.
