enriquecedora, contacto con la naturaleza Excelente experiencia , y contar con el acompañamiento de Dr. Chavarro , quien es el pionero de este maravilloso proyecto de recuperación forestal durante tantos años, gran plan familiar xa que los jóvenes y niños aprendan a cuidar la naturaleza y preservar este territorio
A Piece of Paradise An excellent example of the healing powers of time with some assistance. The transformation over 38 years is amazing. It has truly been a labour of love. Our guide spoke very good English and was full of information pointing out various plant, bird and insect species. The bus ride from Villa de Leyva to Arcabuco was also scenic but a bit rough. From there we took a taxi. Wish we would have spent a night there. Treat yourself to nature.
Wonderful Conservation Initiative We stayed at Rogitama Reserve for two nights and had a fantastic visit! The room was comfortable, the food was delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed all of the hummingbird feeders. The family have put a lot of effort into restoring this forest and have done an excellent job! I highly recommend visiting!
El mejor cumpleaños!! 🎈 I decided to travel by myself and spent the night there for my birthday , and I could say it’s been one of my happiest birthdays ever!! Ginette the host and her family are the best! they are warm and kind , and have done an amazing job there. They are totally committed with conservation 🌳🌱🦜👏🏽 Rogitama is a gorgeous and peaceful place. Full of birds and amazing trees Highly recommended and it’s super easy to get there , from Bogota or Villa de Leyva ps: the birthday card was made by Ginette for me 🎈😍
Fantastic environmental initiative..... We really enjoyed our visit. The owners are devoted to their project and our guide was a very sympathetic fellow called Awat (I think). It was an interesting way to pass the best part of a day and we learnt a lot from this visit. We would highly recommend visiting this place.
Recuperación maravillosa de bosque Excelente oportunidad para conocer una experiencia muy interesante de una familia que ha trabajado por años por la recuperación de un ecosistema que maravilla por su diversidad botánica, de aves (especialmente colibríes) y pequeños mamíferos. Apropiado para legos y expertos, la atención y amor por la naturaleza que se ofrecen hacen de este destino una de las mejores experiencias para ir solo, con amigos o en familia. Absolutamente recomendable. Pronto con acceso a internet.
A true paradise Roberto’s family spent 27 years planting out pasture land with trees, shrubs and plants of a truly amazing diversity. This is what an Andean cloud forest is all about. The hummingbird activity around the feeders positioned on the balcony will keep you mesmerized for hours. You will even get to see the endangered Principe de Arcabuco ! Take very warm clothing especially for the evenings...the altitude is around 2,500 meters
A wonderful Nature Experience Rogitama was one of the highlights of our trip round Colombia. We had a wonderful two night (extended to four nights!) stay in January 2019. My wife and I were particularly interested in the birds. However, there is so much more of the natural world to appreciate here. Roberto, Isabel and Awad really made us feel at home. They explained how Roberto's family had turned a 30 ha paddock into a wonderful nature reserve. Their hard work was spread over about 30 years. Even if you've never been attracted to nature observation, it's a marvellous place to chill out for a few days.
Increíble Un sitio espectacular!! Los colibríes son hermosos La Paz y tranquilidad del lugar es especial! Súper recomendado
Sleeping among the hummingbirds We really enjoyed our stay at rogitama. It is and enspiring place, where you really find silence and beauty. It a perfect spot for nature lovers traveling around Colombia! The docter and his daugther are wonderfull hosts, and can help you in English!
Estuvimos por un corto tiempo con mi familia, pero fue encantador. La experiencia de restauración ecológica que tienen es profundamente inspiradora. Una visita que vale mucho la pena!
Hermosa experiencia y excelente atención, un lugar único. Admirable labor de conservación.
Un lugar maravilloso, tranquilo, para estar inmerso en la naturaleza. El recorrido por la reserva es muy interesante. Se pueden avistar gran cantidad de aves. Recomendado!!
Una verdadera recarga de la naturaleza, un lugar mágico para descansar cero contaminación en todo sentido, vale la pena desconectarse, que tú despertaste lo haga el ruido de la naturaleza no tiene precio.
La reserva Rogitama es un lugar mágico, te permite desconectarte y recargar energías con el contacto con la naturaleza. Hermosa vista incluyendo a los colibríes, en especial, el principe de Arcabuco. 100% recomendado!!!😍
Fue una bonita experiencia ver la naturaleza tan bonita con fauna los invito a visitarlo para disfrutar de la naturaleza
Where to begin....Made the trip from Bogota (2 hour aerovan to Tunja terminal, then you can take any yellow taxi there for 100k to reserve. My only goal here was to find the Black Inca. It does comes to the feeders from time to time but then hides in the bushes so I wouldn't bother if you want a serious photo. The owners can tell you the spots where to sit in the forest they have to see it (which they grew in 40 years!! It was nothing before!). About 10 different species can visit the feeders. About the place...it basically someone's home with a bunch of separate rooms. I stayed the night, bed was comfortable and it was peaceful. Have to wait for hot water but you are fairly remote so don't expect anything fancy. Also you are high altitude so can be a bit cold in night and day. Awatt speaks basically fluent English which was a great surprise and everyone there has such fantastic energy and are happy to help you. It's super chill place to just relax and see Colombia's hummers! See my photo attached and follow me on instagram @greenkomodo
Espectacular reserva, muy recomendado.
