We are a small ecolodge cum fields research center located smack in the middle of the jungle. Only accessible by boat after a 1 hour to 2 hour trip depending on water level. The lodge caters to the intrepid nature traveler who does not mind some discomforts while savouring the unexpected comforts offered this far from civilazation as one immerses in the Malayan rainforest.Small numbers of guests makes stays at Earth Lodge private and personalized. We always strive to comply with ecotourism principles in our operations.Run as a conservation enterprise, we are active in advocacy work with local conservation NGO's aiming for better management and protection of this important conservation area.

We came to Ulu Muda knowing that it was going to be a camp/chalet-like experience. That was met, because the facilities though basic was very much livable and true to what a field research centre should be. with some insects at the corner of the bathroom, mozzies flying and limited electricity, it is all compensated when you wake up to the sound of the gibbons, hornbills and wildlife of the rainforest early in the morning. The one-hour boat ride from the Kuala Muda jetty will take you right into the only place you could live in this forest reserve. Get some sunscreen on and a cap for this midday boat ride. The evening cruise is the most enjoyable activity for all of us because we got to take our time to listen to the sounds, identify the animals, watch out for them in the trees and if lucky, spot the elephants. The jungle trekking was tiring, because of the many stops and we were busy ticking leeches off our bodies but it was an enriching experience. Wear leech socks and long sleeve shirts! Don’t be put off by the leeches because more leeches means there is a large amount of wildlife present. As our guide says, consider it forest tax!

The 4 day trip was amazing. We saw so many animals (elephants, birds, insects etc) and could also enjoy the landscape and plants. Hymeir is such a great guide. He knows nearly all animals and can give very interesting explanations. The tours are very well organized. Food and accommodation is basic/good, exactly what to expect from a jungle lodge. I can highly recommend the trip.

Last june we stayed for the 4d3n package at this amazing lodge. The fun already started when we arrived at the jetty and were picked up by Hymeir to take the boatride to the lodge. As the water was not very high our captain had to get out several times to keep the boat moving, but after a little more than an hour we arrived at this little paradise. We were very lucky as we were the only guests, so we had a private guide and a private cook/captain. The accomodation is indeed a bit basic, but everything you need is there. During our stay we did several boattrips and hikes and we also went tubing (this was much more relaxing than i expected). Hymeir can tell a lot about Ula Muda and all the wildlife surrounding the lodge and also about all the effort he is putting in conservation of Ula Muda. We were even part of his research team by counting the plain pouched hornbills flying by. As a bird watcher it was very nice to see so many of these very rare hornbills Next to this he is also very friendly and we had a lot of nice conversations during the dinners. For us staying in the lodge was the highlight of our trip and if you interested in relaxing stay with a lot of nature around you (yes leeches are included..), this is the place to be!
