I was here as part of a tour and have to say that it was a highlight of my trip. From the time I got off the bus and was taken to the lodge in the back of a truck, I knew I was in for a life adventure. My room was spacious, equipped with a ceiling fan and mosquito netting. The natural setting was nice. When the power went off and the ceiling fan stopped, it did get very hot in the room. The staff was very nice and helpful. The food was just ok and sometimes an adventure (trying to guess what it was). Breakfast was good. We were taken on a jungle walk with an excellent guide with knowledge of the animals, birds and plants. Riding down the river in the dugout boat and coming upon a rhino in the river was amazing! It was interesting to see the elephants at the conservatory and taking part in the elephant wash was excellent. The safari on elephant back was a life event. Seeing the rhino's, deer, monkeys, etc. from the back of an elephant was so fun. The vendors at the bus station can be a little aggressive but they also are good at bargaining.
