HOWLER RIVER SAFARI: 1 hour
by PONTOON BOAT
This tour leaves from and returns to Howler Monkey Lodge hourly.
This tour is an excellent choice for day-visitors to the CBS (Community
Baboon Sanctuary) Museum wishing to see more of the Sanctuary. The
Howler River Safari is a one hour boat ride where we leisurely steam
up the Meandering Belize River to observe birds, huge iguanas, howler
monkeys, and maybe even the endangered morelet crocodile while learning
about the CBS and the many trees, vines and epiphytes which all
call this sanctuary home. There will be excellent photo opportunities
so bring along your camera or video. A very stable and comfortable
26 foot pontoon boat allows everyone the natural habitat in an eco-friendly
what our client had to say about this tour.
JUNGLE RIVER CANOE TOUR:
2.5 hours by CANOE - Guided
Come join for the fun outdoor adventure, listen to the excitement
of the Howler Monkeys shadowed by the tranquility of the Belize
River. We "put in" our canoe at the nearby village of
"Double Head Cabbage" to start our two and half hour adventure,
drifting, paddling down the meandering Belize River. You will travel
for approximately 8 miles while seeing riparian forest, which parallel
the River stopping at our lodge. At rivers edge, the forests form
dense luxuriant tangles of trees, vines, shrubs, Epiphytes and herbs.
On this trip
you will see several troops of Black Howler Monkeys, huge iguanas
and many species of birds and if you are lucky the endangered Morelet
Crocodile Night Adventure:
2 - 3 hours by CANOE
"This one is a big hit with our guests". Probably one
of the most exciting trips you might ever experience. We put in
at Mussel Creek, a 10-minute drive from the Lodge, equipped with
canoes, Flashlights, life vests, radio communication and accompanied
by an experienced guide. We begin our adventure with the cool of
the night setting in and the mist from the warm water rising up,
we stealthily paddle towards these living fossils. Our objective?
To get as close as possible to them, so close, sometimes you could
almost touch them, but a photo is probably a better idea.
flying around and other nocturnal creatures stirring about and fish
jumping all around you, some even landing in your canoe, the ambiance
of a star-filled sky on a jungle river makes for an exhilarating
experience for you to enjoy. We are professionals at this and assure
all a safe trip, children six years and older are welcome.
River Night Hunt:
2 hours by PONTOON BOAT
Right after dinner, we arm ourselves with flashlights, life vests,
cameras and radio communication and go "hunting" for crocodiles
and other nocturnal creatures, trying to get as close to them so
as to "shoot" them with our cameras. It is fun to be on
the river at night searching for all the little critters that come
to the river for a sip of water while enjoying a star filled sky
as the boat guides through the river. This wonderful two-hour tour
is similar to the Crocodile Night Adventure only that it is done
on our comfortable, 26-foot pontoon Boat on the Belize River, taking
away some of the apprehension from our less adventuro guests. This
is a treat for everyone!
