Day 1 | Arrival | Jungle Night Hike
On arrival at Lamanai, get settled in your spacious, comfortable thatched roof cabana. After Dinner enjoy a Guided Night Jungle Hike. Experience the jungle under the evening stars or by the light of the moon. Listen as the owls and bats come out to hunt and gather, and the troupes of Howler monkeys speak to each other across the canopy. Sounds come from everywhere as many species such as frogs and tarantulas, other mammals and species of birds thrive in the late hour of the evening.
Day 2 | Sunrise Canoe or River Spotlight| Lamanai Temple
After Breakfast and a break, meet your guide for the Lamanai Temple tour just a few minutes walk away from the Lodge! In the company of an expert guide explore the mysterious jungle-shrouded temples of this once powerful 3000 year old civilization where nature and ancient history coexist. The ruins of Lamanai encompass over 700 structures, a visitor’s center and museum.
If your preference is a night time excursion, rather than a morning excursion, then the River Spotlight Safari awaits! After dinner, climb aboard a comfortable custom built river safari boat and head out into the night. This exciting adventure gives you the opportunity to encounter anything from the Morelet’s crocodile to the elusive and endangered jaguar. All this plus close up views of some of Belize’s fascinating river birds as they roost on the water’s edge make this a not-to-miss adventure!
Day 3 | Cave Tube & Zip Line | Xfr Sleeping Giant Lodge
Along the way, stop in at Nohoch Cheen Reserve for a Cave Tube & Zip Line Adventure. Grab your gear and follow your guide along the jungle trail as he describes the traditional uses of the many plants and trees of Belize. At the river splash right in or gently ease into your tube as you start your float through the caves with only your headlamp to lead the way! The Zip Line tour is a big hit as a combination on the cave tubing. Strapped into your harness you zoom between treetops from platform to platform!
Day 4 | Black Hole Drop or River Cave Expedition
Black Hole Drop: This expedition starts off with a vigorous hike into the foothills of the Maya Mountains. The edge of the Actun Loch Tunich sink hole sits over 300 feet above the basin below, 200 feet above the rainforest canopy that grows out from the sink hole basin. Our fully trained caving guides then rig a system of rappelling ropes for your decent to the basin below.
River Cave Expedition: An energetic combination of cave tubing and cave exploration to explore this incredible river cave system where ancient Maya Ceremonial centers, pottery, artifacts, altars, obsidian blood letting blades, jade and footprints are still seen. This is not a meandering tube float, but a true caving experience!
