The Iwokrama forest’s ecosystem teems with plant species as well as animal species that are under threat.
Guests stay here at the Field Station which has eight of comfortable thatched cabins, all with private facilities. Wrap-around verandas with hammocks overlook the Essequibo River.
The restaurant serves traditional food, and there is a gift shop and general shop nearby.
From Iwokrama there are opportunities to spot jaguar, Harpy eagle and black caiman (at night), or to trek to Turtle Mountain.
The Iwokrama forest also has a 30 metre high canopy walkway from where you can view the treetops and listen to the dawn chorus.
