We arrived at Iwokrama River Lodge by air after visiting the Kaieteur Falls. It was a fantastic experience! The staff are very friendly and helpful. We were greeted with fresh juice and cold clothes. The birding and the guides were great! If you want a birding/wildlife experience, this is a fabulous place. The rooms are basic, comfortable and adequate for...

It's a long, hard drive to Iwokrama, but it is worth it to experience such a remote and unspoiled environment. The guides are fantastic and the atmosphere is relaxed and hospitable. Bird-watching and wildlife viewing are the main focus of activities at the lodge. It is relatively easy to see many species of beautiful birds, but viewing mammals is more...

This lodge is set along the river in the midst of the rain forest ; it is quite remote so don't expect too much and you will be delighted. Wi-fi cover is patchy and there is no hot water. Rooms are comfortable, the food is excellent, and the staff are friendly and helpful. The place is great for birding with...

My visit to Iwokrama River Lodge was a nothing short of magnificent! The hospitality shown by the staff and tour guides was excellent! I did a few tours including the Mora Forest, which I now call the Enchanted Mora Fora Forest. In the Mora forest, I felt so calm (present, relaxed); you know that thing which promotes tranquility. The guides...

The rooms are fantastic as are trips on the river. The guides are excellent. The food is average. The manager was unhelpful and evasive with the internet. There are several wifi connections, the ones the manager finally issued passwords for didn't work

Thank you for your very helpful review. We apologise for the internet issues. As you are aware we are in a remote location and our internet is very expensive to run, uses satellite and is always slow (even for work purposes) and affected also by cloud cover.. It also slows down if we have many users at once. For the...

After a long journey from Georgetown we were greeted with such warmth as we started our jungle adventure with Operation Wallacea. The accommodation is pleasant and clean and the girls' big dormitory had doors each end to make life easy. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff fixed any issues very quickly. Food was delicious and plentiful ... we...

The Iwokrama River Lodge is set in a beautiful clearing on the banks of the Essequibo river. The set-up is pretty straightforward with a two-storey central building housing a shop, toilets and administration rooms on the ground floor and a bar and restaurant on the upper floor. The upper floor is nicely laid out with great views over the grounds...

Several of the lodges overlook the river. They have private balconies with hammocks. The rooms are large and clean, and the fans a great relief from the heat. The staff are friendly, the food good. We did a couple of excursions, to Turtle mountain, which was a hard slog in the heat for a nice view of the canopy. And...

Iwokrama is such a wonderful place! The people, accommodation, food, tours and everything else one can possibly see within this 371,000 hectares of protected rain forest is absolutely amazing! 💓🌳🌿 🌎 I will be visiting again! 😊
