The Iwokrama Canopy Walkway is a series of suspension bridges and decks of up to 30 metres in height and 154 metres in length, located in the Iwokrama Forest. It gives visitors a new view of the mid and upper canopy of the forest and allows wildlife to be relatively free from human intrusion.
At the base of the canopy walkway is Atta Rainforest Lodge, resting amidst towering trees and grassy lawns. The lodge provides comfortable accommodation with 8 private rooms, three home-cooked meals per day, and ample opportunities to explore the surrounding rainforest by foot, canoe, or 4X4.
The forest around the walkway contains some important flora and fauna. Among these are endangered and protected species such as the jaguar, the bullet wood tree, greenheart and the waramadan (endemic in Guyana only to the Iwokrama Forest).
Meals are freshly prepared local delicacies of free range beef, chicken and fish. Vegetarian and special diets are catered for with notice. Guyanese cuisine may vary from what you are used to at home, so feel free to pop in the kitchen and see what and how we are preparing the meals.
Visits to the Canopy Walkway are scheduled during your stay at Atta Rainforest Camp. Normally there is a visit that leaves the camp before dawn so that you can welcome the dawn chorus from the canopy. Then again as the afternoon cools you can return to the walkway to experience night falling and the canopy after dark. Additional visits are available outside these scheduled trips. All visitors to the walkway are accompanied by our Canopy Walkway Specialists.
Atta Rainforest Lodge is centrally located along the main Rupununi Road that crosses through the Iworkrama Rain Forest. Surama Village, Iwokrama River Lodge, and Rock View Lodge in Annai are all about an hour away by road.
