With proper precautions, swimming in the river is fun. Ask your guide if you want to swim in a river. Don't go swimming in the river without your guide.
You can walk along the Lodge facilities, but just follow the trails with your guide and stay on the trails at all times unless your guide tells you to.

Tipping is not mandatory, but it is at your discretion.
We reserve the right to postpone or cancel any activity due to weather, unsafe water conditions, or any other circumstance that may jeopardize the safety of our guests and guides.
