Not sure how to start this one as I rarely write bad reviews. From the outside looks OK but there was not much to do. I will say our wildlife river cruises were very good but that is luck as to what you encounter. We saw elephants close up & lots of Proboscis Monkeys, Macaques & Gibbons. So did the other lodge safari boats as they are all on the river at the same time. The river safari's don't go for long enough & there is nothing else to do. The Lodge itself was OK but we were invaded by ants, fly spray in the rooms would sort that problem. We used our insect repellent. The air conditioning was good had a decent book so lazed around reading. Not really what I wanted to do. The grounds of the lodge are quite unkempt with a lot of rubbish visible. The food seemed OK until we got very sick on the day we left. Other people staying there who we caught up with later also experienced sickness within their family. Probably would look for another lodge with better grounds so you could explore or just enjoy the outdoors.
