A Weekend in the Jungle

What an experience! Our friends Holly and Scott were going to help Linda and Eric, owners of the Rambala Jungle Lodge with some projects and asked if we would like to come along. Not being one to turn down interesting experiences with good friends, we said yes.

I hardly know where to start telling about the weekend so I have grouped my photos, and through the next few posts I hope the story will come together.

Rambala is a town on the way to Almirante in the Bocas del Toro Province, so it’s on the north side of the mountains and the continental divide. The Rambala Lodge is a bit outside of town, back in the jungle. You can get most of the way by 4 wheel drive, but you have to walk in the rest of the way. There is no electricity, and water is either collected rainwater or from the small river that runs through the property. It was definitely a style of living I hadn’t experienced before!

We saw so much wildlife, birds, scenery, and jungle. Eric and Linda clearly love it and I can certainly see why. Parts are so wild and natural they look like no one has been there for hundreds of years. They are making it safe for wildlife so many interesting animals and birds are making their homes there. I hope the photos will give a sense of the experience, but nothing is like actually being there so visit if you get the opportunity.

Here’s a few more photos of plants and flowers and wonderful views around the property.

I have a lot of wildlife photos to sort through, so stand by. There is more on the way.
