For many of us life is on hold at the moment, just a case of waiting and hoping that this terrible situation passes and all of our lives can return to some kind of normality. Several of our past clients/guests/friends have asked how things are at Itororo Lodge with Rainer, Bettina, lodge staff and our driver Serginho, thankfully they are all well and looking forward to the time that we can all work together again in sharing their wonderful lodge, birds and the beautiful Atlantic forest. Photo below is of the wonderful Itororo Lodge (Andy Foster)
We are all faced with very challenging times at the moment, we would like to wish our past and future clients our very best wishes and look forward to more positive times ahead. Although Itororo Lodge is currently closed…. the birds don’t stop coming! Maroon-bellied Parakeet on the lodge feeders (Andy Foster).
