Atta Rainforest Lodge, Iwokrama

All too often the creatures of the rainforest canopy remain a mystery – you hear them but catch only a fleeting glimpse of them. Not at Atta Rainforest Lodge.

The speed at which monkeys fly through the canopy of the Iwokrama Rainforest is mind-boggling. And there’s no better place to stand and watch them than 30 metres above the ground on the Iwokrama Canopy Walkway. You may be out of your natural environment in the treetops, but the wildlife is completely at home – giving you an unrivalled demonstration of grace and acrobatic skill. It’s an experience that will be one of the highlights of your tailor-made holiday to Guyana.

As well as its setting at the bottom of the Canopy Walkway, the Atta Rainforest Lodge offers other delights. It’s the perfect place for viewing any number bird species, rare bullet wood trees, greenheart and the endemic waramadan - and even endangered creatures like the jaguar.
