Chance to see egg laying turtles is worth the arduous journey by 4WD from Rajegwesi village to Sukamade. It took 2 hours to cover 6km and 4 river crossings; each way.

Bathroom was very basic, you go back in time! Bed was good. Dinner and breakfast was good but choice was limited, quality was good and fresh. The turtle thing was absolutely great, will never forget! The ride was long and bumpy!
