Rewa village is a small Amerindian community located in central Guyana at the confluence of the Rewa and Rupununi rivers. With about 300 inhabitants, the people of Rewa village are mostly from the Makushi tribe. The Rewa area is renowned for its abundance of wildlife and ecological diversity.
The eco-lodge was started in 2005 with a community grant provided by Conservation International and tireless efforts by villagers who literally built the lodge from the ground up. Today we have two traditional benabs and three self contained cabins that can accommodate two or four guests each. The benabs offer shared restroom facilities, while the cabins each have an ensuite restroom with a shower overlooking the forest. All rooms feature comfortable mattresses and mosquito nets.
Delicious traditional meals are served in our large dinning benab where you can also choose to buy drinks from the bar or purchase some of our traditional crafts. We have a selection of species identification books to browse through in this main living area.
A generator and solar panels provide limited power to the lodge, and a satellite internet connection is available a few hours per day.
The magic of Rewa is our remote location. Most guests reach us by river, coming from Kwatamang Landing near Bina Hill. This journey can take 2 to 6 hours depending on water levels in the Rupununi River. You can also charter a plane to land at Apoteri where our boat crew will meet you for the one-hour journey back to Rewa. The length of the river journey is usually a highlight: as you travel Guyana’s rivers, you’ll see an amazing array of wildlife, including black and spectacled caiman, giant river otters, capybara, tapir, river stingrays, piranha, and countless birds, large and small.
From Rewa there are many day trips worth checking out. Those who brave the strenuous hike to the top of Awaramie Mountain are treated to a view over the rainforest canopy that is unrivaled in Amazonia. Sundowners in a dugout canoe on the tranquil Grass Pond are a special treat. Those looking for an extended adventure might want to head up the Rewa River, camping on the riverbanks and cooking fresh-caught-fish over an open fire for dinner. The 3 day trip up to Corona Falls is an adventure into true wilderness you won’t soon forget.
We also offer a limited number of sport-fishing permits for catch-and-release Arapaima fishing each season. At other times of the year, the fishing for Lukanani and other local specialties is truly spectacular.
