Today they run a very welcoming base to see this part of the Amazon basin and concern themselves with protecting the environment of the area. The journey there makes you feel you are...

The lodge is in a prime area for bird watching and the canopy tower & parrot clay licks are a huge highlight. The guides are very knowledgeable about the wildlife and are very keen spotters, they found birds hiding in thick foliage I never would have seen. The bungalow was very nice and peaceful. Birding photos are on milestothewild.com
