Barred Puffbirds, Rufous-tailed Jacamars, White-headed Wrens and many more make up a distinct dawn chorus like no other in Panama. Located in Central America’s most diverse and least-explored region, the Darién province of Panama is a birder’s paradise. Situated in the humid lowlands of far eastern Panama, near the end of the Pan-American Highway, at the new Canopy Camp you can feel the wilderness around you, from just a step outside your tent. Towering giants – Cuipo trees – provide a panorama of the Darién, and are in clear view above the forest canopy, right from your tent. It is in these enormous rainforest giants that Harpy Eagles and Crested Eagles place their nests and raise their young.
While you sip your morning coffee, listen for the buzzy trills of Golden-headed Manakins lekking in the forests beside the camp. A walk with your knowledgeable guide will be thoroughly awe-inspiring and entertaining. From tiny, colorful poison dart frogs on the forest floor to Red-throated Caracaras in the canopy above, these forests are full of life. At the end of the day of exploring the region, settle into your tent and doze off to the calls of owls, potoos, nightjars and a symphony of frogs, bidding you good-night from the forests of Darién.
While enjoying the wilderness all around us, camp in comfort in custom-designed African safari-style luxury tents with all the amenities we offer at our other eco-lodges.
