This lovely riverside lodge gives you the best opportunity to see lots of birds and mammals. We spent the days in the comfortable motor boats which, when the boat men turn off onto a small tributaries, switch to very quiet electric motors. This enables you to slide along the river bank and see amazing views of Orangutans, large families of Proboscis monkeys, Crab-eating Macques, spectacular birds, and even a large Reticulated Python!
The lodge itself is beautifully designed with very lovely rooms with large pebble-floored showers where you can refresh yourself several time a day!
The food served on the wooden deck overlooking the river is delicious and varied and catches a cooling breeze. There is even a nice shop where you can purchase some locally made bead work jewelry. A lovely, exotic,comfortable, nature-filled lodge!
