We have a comfortable lodge and receive guests from around the world, who are interested in birdwatching, wildlife, nature and our reforestation project. There is easy access to a network of trails across the Reserve, the wetland walk which starts from the lodge, also has two bird hides. From the wetland there are several loops you can take into the forest. Other trails start in different areas of the Reserve to give access to the widest variety of wildlife. For these further trails we provide transport to the start of the walk and walking guides or a bird guide can be arranged at an additional cost.
We offer bird watching excursions in different sites outside REGUA where it is easier to access higher altitudes or with differing habitats which give more specialist bird species, including Grey-winged Cotinga, Itatitia Spinetail, Three-toed Jacamar, Restinga Antwerp, Green-crowned Plovercrest, Black-and-gold Cotinga, Blue-winged Macaw and Roseate Spoonbill.
