Canopy Tower and Canopy Lodge are both fabulous places to stay if you're interested in birds and wildlife. The guides at both lodges are fantastic, and know all the birds by sight and sound. I have stayed at both accommodations twice now, and can't wait to go back.
The Tower is a fairly simple lodge (particularly the single rooms which share a bathroom). The twins have en suite bathrooms. The accommodation is in an old radar tower, which makes for interestingly shaped rooms, and for great access to the top of the tower to watch birds and mammals, but does mean the whole place can be noisy (they provide ear plugs to guard against snorers!).
The Lodge is more luxurious, with lovely ensuite rooms for both twin and single. It is located by a rushing river, and has bird feeders.
The food in both lodges is good and tasty. I would highly recommend visits to both the Tower and Lodge. I stayed at the Tower for 7 nights and at the Lodge for 3 nights, and that wasn't long enough in either place!
