We spend 2 nights here and had a great time
The rooms are very basic but the bathroom is clean and works
Lots of monkeys around the chalets plus we saw civet and monitor lizard
There is a great night walk through the jungle but make sure you have your leech socks with you
We trekked to an ox bow lake through deep jungle which was fun but exhausting
Food is fine but basic
The river cruises morning and evening as the big events where you see all sorts of monkeys and birds , even crocodiles and may be a wild orangutan
Staff are friendly and helpful
Make sure you hire wellies for the jungle treks as the mud and water is almost knee deep and don't lose sight or the guide !
