I visited with three nephews as a graduation trip and from the moment we arrived, the service was top-notch and they maintained that level the whole time! This is a place to visit for the adventures, so I'll start there. The cave tubing was really fun. It's a medium-effort adventure and you get to see five caves up close from... More

In December 2015, my husband and I stayed 3 nights in a Jungle Lodge. The food and service are absolutely first rate. We signed up for the Black Hole drop and the Waterfall Cave adventure. We were impressed with the skill level & knowledge of all the guides. We would go back in a minute! Highly recommend !!

We did an overnight at Cabes Branch and it was wonderful. We filled our bellies ar rhe abundany buffet with a 4 course selection that would bebhard tp beat, complete with fine cheeses made on site. Back in our jungle hideaway room the peaceful rippling river lulled us to sleep. It was amazing.

This was my second visit to Caves Branch and it's as excellent as the first time. We did three excursions: ATM, Waterfall cave, and the jungle overnight. ATM was led by an external tour company. The waterfall cave and jungle overnight were excellent! The guides were super helpful and the adventure itself was great. Lots of good hiking and interesting... More

This lodge is not for everyone. I have seen some comments about guests concerned with the proximity of the jungle and its creatures to the accommodations. Fine, those folks belong in a Holiday Inn and driving to a zoo. This was the finest accommodation that I have ever enjoyed, bar none. This is not a fancy hotel on Michigan Ave... More

We stayed at Ian Andersons Caves Branch in December last year. We thoroughly enjoyed the first 2 nights stay at the resort, the accommodation was brilliant, house keeping were very prompt, however, there were a few incidences that we were not satisfied with. One evening, during dinner, my husband and I had chicken, when I cut my chicken it looked... More

We spent a very enjoyable and exciting 5 days at Caves Branch Jungle Lodge in early January. Almost everything was top notch. The staff works incredibly hard to make sure all guests have an amazing experience. The food was delicious, and a lot of it! The adventure options are amazing.

We did a 3 night 2 adventure package and stayed in the 2 bedroom treehouse. There were approximately 60 stairs on the way to the tree house, so be careful what lodging you book if you don't want that much activity. The accommodations-treehouse, lodge, gardens,and river are beautiful. You are pretty much off the grid here, so you will only... More

Spent 3 nights at Caves Branch on an all inclusive package with 2 excursions and added a third on our last day as we did not want to skip cave tubing, it had rained the other days and it was cancelled.
