This lodge is in the rainforest on the Kat.... River. We really enjoyed our time there. It is not fancy but facilities are more than adequate for where you are. We had one big problem when we arrived - about 9 pm. The AC wasn't working hardly at all - all units have AC. We told the manager and he moved us to the VIP suite. This was real luxury with a two story suite. Great AC. TV (that didn't work). LOTS of hot water with good water pressure. It was really nice. We spent two days there. There were two excursions per day (none in the top heat of the day). We saw huge amounts of wildlife. We had our own guide but the boat driver (a riverman) was terrific at spotting wildlife. Many different types of monkeys, etc., croccodile, one orangutan, lizards, horn bills. Only disappointment is we didn't get to the pygmy elephants due to time issues. They offer several excursions on top of the package we had. A night walk and an night boat ride. My spouse did the night walk and really liked it. Many birds and different types of animals.
Food was good. Staff very good. All in all a really nice time.
