This is a wonderful place to start your Guyanese nature adventure. They have it all here. The cabins tho a bit rustic are perfectly equipped with comfortable beds, decent bathroom and a fan. The porch is really well set up with hammocks, a desk to put your stuff on and great views of the river. The food is splendid. Considering... More

We stayed two nights here in the hopes of seeing some wildlife. The staff in Georgetown took care of all the logistics and arranged a 4 wheel drive roundtrip, which has very comfortable cabins that are laid out along the shore of the Essequibo River, affording spectacular views at sunrise and sunset. Capybara and agouti come all over the grounds,... More

Good staff,Great birds, and turtle mountain is not to be missed! I highly recommend a 2-3 day visit. Birds, Caimen,monkeys,frogs,bats, and a serene vibe. Phone/wifi limited to central building. I cannot say enough.

I stayed at this lodge for 2 nights as part of tour run by Wilderness Explorers that included all meals and tours. My rating is based on a combination of the tours provided and the accommodations compared to the other lodges on the tour. I had a large room with a double bed/mosquito net, 2 singles beds, fan, good lightning... More

I came to the Iwokrama River Lodge as an undergraduate research assistant for Operation Wallacea (an organization that is partnered with Iwokrama for conservation research in the local rainforest). Iwokrama is teeming with wildlife, a birders must see sight, herps galore, and tons of bats! The service was amazing, the food was delicious! We stayed here for 3 days and... More

I spent about a month in many of Iwokrama's beautiful lodges, it was amazing, definitely one of the best decisions that I made in my life. Thank you for hosting us all this time.

I spent the last month in Iwokrama and Surama as an intern for Operation Wallacea (a research and expeditions organisation). The facilities throughout Iwokrama and Surama were truly beyond anything I expected. If you ask me what areas Iwokrama can improve on I really won't be able to tell you since they lived up to all my expectations and more.... More

Stayed there during our second trip to Guyana and enjoyed it. Large spacious rooms, good food, friendly staff, knowledgeable guides and a lot of things to do. Or.,.just relax in the main lodge with a view on the Essequibo river. Hike on the Turtle Mountain is worth all the effort.
