Is this suitable for all ages?

As birds are very sensitive to stimulus, young children are not recommended for the birdwatching activities for everyone’s enjoyment. The walk is approximately 3 hours, and so is recommended for those with the ability to endure a long hike through the forest.

What should I bring?

Bring some water, hiking shoes, insect repellent, and we’ll take care of the rest!

How many people usually join?

The event is limited to the first 15 people who sign up.

How do I reserve a spot?

Please e-mail us at ecolodge@tacugama.com and let us know the preference for the lodge you’d like to book and any dietary preferences you might have.
