We were picked up from our hotel and after a quick drive we arrived at the Chavón River bank. We were welcomed by Rob, a Dutch guy who chose to live in the Dominican Republic 20 years ago. He is very nice, seems to have a good relationship with the locals and was a great guide. Our tour was conducted in German and English. Our group had 19 people total (mostly Europeans and a Canadian couple), I believe groups aren't a lot bigger that that, so we had an exclusive and relaxed experience. The boat ride was smooth, it had chairs and tables for everybody, was very spacious and comfortable. We were served fresh tropical fruits, water, coke and rum. After a 20 minute boat ride, we arrived at the ranch, we learned so much about the local flora and fauna! They have a beautiful butterfly garden, beautiful birds, we met Billy the iguana, Bo the snake (with which we got to interact after lunch) and even a Tarantula! We also visited another location, Yuca Llena, where we learned about the local plants, got to see how chocolate is made and even tasted a delicious hot chocolate drink with ginger and cinnamon. We took a brief hike, passed over a hanging bridge, and kayaked! The most adventurous of the group got to swing with the "Tarzan Rope". If you want to have a fun, relaxed day, learn a lot of things about the flora and fauna of the Dominican Republic, be off the tourist path and feel like you're living a unique experience, I highly recommend this trip!!

Very exciting and relaxing experience! Many thanks to our tour guide, Robert, who had been so patient and understandable to a small group of ten seniors with an average aged 65 who walked very slow and always needed a hand in climbing up and down the trail. The boat cruise was so relaxing with music, fresh fruits, and drinks for us to enjoy. Robert always stayed in the front of the boat to look for different kinds of special species so we could take pictures of them. We were so excited to see live hummingbirds, eagles, rhino-iguana, snakes, crows, different kinds of butterflies. We learned a lot of amazing information from Robert, and was so impressed what they did to establish an area to try to tell people the importance of saving environment. Love the authentic Dominican food, and also love the friendly staff there. Highly recommend!!!

What an absolutely fabulous day we got to spend on 01/27/18! The day trip to Tanama Jungle Ranch was a great learning experience. Our guide, Richard, was very knowledgeable about the conservation efforts, animals, butterflies, hummingbirds and fauna of the area. The weather was not in our favor and the river was running too fast to kayak or swim, but that did not detour from our enjoyment of the day. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We fed the turkey vultures, met the large iguana, posed for pictures with the parrot and even held the sweet boa constrictor. All things none of us had done before. I highly recommend this activity. BTW, this was a group of 4, all over 50 adults and we all have nothing but rave reviews for this activity!

Visited Tanama with a school group of 30 as an end of year activity for kinder... perfect setting for 6 year olds.. Constant contact with nature, freedom to run, ask questions, touch exotic animals and just be kids... The staff is super friendly and patient! imagine a tour for ten 6 year olds that went smoothly... these people are real professionals! Food is typical dominican food... very tasty and lots of it.. For me (as an adult) the highlight was the boat trip to the ranch (starts at the dam in rio chavon) and the green, lush views... for the children of course the snakes, iguanas, butterflies, vultures, parrots... Special thanks to our guide Robert, like most of the staff he really put his heart into making this a memorable experience! No downside on this trip... if you have kids, wish to do something different and love nature this one is for you... There's a short nature trail, a tiny pool and lots of space to explore... I contacted them via Ingrid - Seavis at (1) 809 833 0477 Trust me you'll enjoy this one...

Excellent, the entire experience was excellent. The staff, the boat ride, canoeing, lunch the tour of the grounds and all the interesting things we learned. Well worth it. We bought the CD of our time there. The photographer was good and truly captured the beauty of the jungle and the fun we all had.
