Rewa Ecolodge is located in the Rewa village, a small Amerindian community located in the north Rupununi in central Guyana, at the confluence of the Rewa and Rupununi rivers. With about 250 inhabitants, Rewa's people are mostly from the Makushi tribe. The Rewa area is renowned for its abundance of wildlife. The ecolodge was built with a community grant provided by Conservation International.
