Ian Anderson’s Caves Branch Jungle Lodge
Blue Hole National Park, Belize
Caves Branch is a unique Rainforest Lodge situated in the very heart of the Belizean Jungle, just 12 short miles outside of Belmopan, Belize. Created as an amazing Adventure Camp, Caves Branch operates a renowned collection of Adventure Expeditions into the wilderness surrounding the camp. With a wide list of fascinating and invigorating activities, Birding is by far, one of the popular features of our nature tours. Led by qualified and highly trained guides, our birding and other adventure tours could not be safer and more interesting. Our lodge offers adventures that must be experienced to be believed but once experienced… never forgotten!
A jungle oasis featuring 23 unique jungle and tree-house accommodations, with a range of prices to suit most vacationers budgets and a complete menu of unique Adventures that are OUT OF THE ORDINARY! Each guestroom is a charming experience of sights and sounds, allowing visitors to engage with the surrounding rain-forest while enjoying a clear barrier from the natural insects and critters that swarm the forests. Although not sanitized from the jungle, we invite you to enjoy natures symphony which comes alive at dawn and inspires our deep appreciation for the wildlife that surrounds us.
The Main Lodge building boosts a family styled dining room that seats over 80 guests and a full service bar and kitchen/ restaurant serving buffet breakfast and 3 course buffet dinners that cater to picky children or health conscious adults. Dietary requirements such as vegetarian, gluten-free and other needs are easily accommodated.
A large and adventure themed multi-leveled swimming pool and hot tub are the center of most guests relaxing afternoons- following their return from a long day of
trekking and repeling off 300ft cliffs, or plunging into submerged waterfall pools inside mysterious caves…
Our massage center is situated in the mist of a 15 acre Botanical Garden, and along the banks of the turquoise Caves Branch River. Skilled hands are ready to relieve the aching muscles and tight joints from full days of adrenaline pumping expeditions.
Another unique feature is our on-site Cheese House that creates 12 different types of semi-hard and soft cheese creations that delight the pallet and provide our visitors with a fabulous morsel at meal times and at our afternoon Cheese Tasting sessions, which can be booked with our Guest Services staff from Mon- Fri of each week from 3:00pm to 4:00pm.
While not the ordinary resort, Caves Branch is ready to engage guests of all ages and physical abilities. This is truly an unforgettable vacation waiting to happen!
