  • Very very nice location without a lot of tourists. We are flamingos, other birds and Caymans watching, go have a mud bath and fish taken from the net. Very very nice experience with very good food. We have slept in hammocks, but there are beds for people who prefer not to do this. We had this in ' Gerda ' and paid 50 euros for 1 night, including food. Super friendly people!

  • the trip on the 8 km long river to the Lake was already stunning. A lot of birds spotted. Staying in a House on stilts in the Lake in the evening and the day after thousands of Flamios, ibises etc seen gorgeous!

  • Stephanie's lodge in the middle of the Lake gives you a unique experience-the wind blows through your basic small room, the water sloshes under your bed. In the morning your breakfast with grapefruit, fried banana and other local nice thingies. The environment pulsates with the birds-Regulio speed the canoe by the best places to see the Red ibises, the woodstorks, cotton bird, and the yellow-legged riders. It was a miracle this trip.

  • Beautiful nature reserve where you can spot the most extraordinary birds. Highly recommended for a two day trip from the city ... during our trip just about seen everything there is to see fell on bird area (on Bigi Pan). Red ibises, white ibises, flamingos, great diversity of large birds of prey. Very good value for money.

  • One night in March 2016 there in a nice cottage on the Lake. Evening bird watching ... red and white Ibisses etc.. came in large numbers over the Lake flies great spectacle. Delicious eaten and slept. 2nd day Flamingos spotting beautiful surroundings and thousands of Flamingos. impressive.. Was there with wife and daughter, our guide Venski and Eddie Cook. The man who brought us everywhere with the boat was also the owner of the cottage lot and on a humoristiche way knew about the birds and the surrounding area to tell ... enjoyed it!! It was short but wonderful to experience
