We had the best 3 days staying here, trekking each day through jungle seeing a wide range of amazing species, including an enormous herd of elephants. Delicious food, helpful friendly staff, cool lodge.

The food, staff and guides were all excellent. The transport to and from the resort was also good and the drivers very careful on the unsealed road to the resort. The dining area was nicely set out and the gardens and look-out tower a great asset. The rooms were a little tired and need a re-fit but the balconies overlooking the jungle were good. Overall definitely not a luxury resort but nonetheless comfortable. There were very few people staying at the resort when we were there - only one other couple most of the time. The guided walks and safaris were interesting.
