ATTA RAINFOREST LODGE

Iwokrama Canopy walkway

The Walkway

An easy 15-minute walk along a forest trail leads to the Iwokrama Canopy Walkway, a series of suspension bridges and decks of up to 30 metres in height and 154 metres in length. This allows close up views of the mid and upper canopy of the forest and allows wildlife to be relatively free from human intrusion. This is an excellent platform for birdwatching or simply enjoying the unique opportunity to be in the tree-tops.

The Lodge

Atta Rainforest Lodge sits in an opening in the Iwokrama Rainforest and offers a complete immersion in the rainforest experience. Lovely gardens attract over 12 species of hummingbirds and lawns lead to the forest verge, where Black Curassow, deer, monkeys, Red-rumped Agouti and sometimes tapir come to feed.

Unparalleled birdwatching opportunities

Many of Guyana’s 840+ species are on unique display here at the Canopy Walkway. Perched 33 meters (100 feet) above the forest floor, the walkway’s four spacious platforms give visitors a unique perspective impossible to gain from the ground below.

Indigenous

Expertise and Hospitality

The Walkway and Lodge are staffed by local Makushi Amerindians and other Guyanese naturalists. We grew up in this rainforest, walking its trails, swimming in its rivers, and learning from countless days of experience. Come spend time in the amazing land we call home.

Homecooked meals & comfortable accommodation

Spend the evening, enjoy dinner under the stars, and treat yourself to the warmth of Amerindian hospitality before heading to the Walkway at dawn. We have eight comfortable guest rooms with attached bath, and we’re famous for our open-to-the-sky showers.
