The lodge provides comfortable accommodation with 10 private rooms, three home-cooked meals per day, and ample opportunities to explore the surrounding rainforest by foot, canoe, or 4X4. « less

I have heard about this walkway many times and was thoroughly excited to finally have the chance to experience it. I went on a class field trip for Transport Economics Course at the University of Guyana. It was a truly remarkable and memorable experience and totally worth the very long bus ride from Georgetown. The staff at Atta Lodge were... More

A great place to stay. Managers were very friendly and accommodating. Leon, our guide, was fantastic and had an amazing knowledge of the birds and other animals we encounted.

Guided by Leon we went to watch, listen and feel the pulse of the jungle at it's best! The sight from the top of the walkway is breathtaking and a night at the lodge is well... Unforgettable! The employees are simply fantastic and the Haulier Monkeys a memorable moment, especially at 3 am! Thanks to the whole team of Wilderness... More

As part of my stay at Atta Lodge, I had a very rewarding experience on the Iwokrama Canopy Walkway. This may not be as extensive as those located in Costa Rica but the sensations and sights are very similar. It comprises of four section, the best is the second viewpoint. There are some dramatic vista and some lovely birds to... More

Excellent to see the birds high up early in the morning from a decent height especially watching the Mccaws flying over. Most bird sightings are at distance but usually they also provide high powered lenses for viewing if you do not have your own

A great walk up in the rainforest but the better sights are down below. Don't touch the bullet ants whatever you do!

Walking eye to eye with the birds and wildlife of the Jungle is a very enjoyable experience and this is what makes Atta Canopy Walkway such a special adventure, well worth a day or three to visit and soak up the jungle scene.

Turtle mountain is a short boat ride from Iwokrama, which is a protected sanctuary. I did not find the mountain an easy climb, however reaching the summit, which is a rather small plateau, the view is spectacular. It's quite something when you see large birds flying beneath your line of vision. Worth getting fit for!

I often wonder why anyone bothers with such elaborate structures. I've never seen anything from them that I couldn't see equally well from ground level. I think they are promoted for use by birders but are more just of entertainment value for people wanting a different experience

As with most canopy walkways the sweet bees are a bother, but of the two days we were on the walkway they bothered us only one day. There are three towers, but only one gives really good views. You can not really view from the walkways. They are two unstable.
