Inside the spacious cottages you will find comfortable beds, a well appointed en suite bathroom with flushing toilets, a hot shower and bath tubs in some rooms.
An elevated lounge area complete with a bar and dining facilities which offers a cozy and comfortable environment to discuss the day’s activities around the fireplaces which add atmosphere and warmth in the cool evenings.

Supplies are obtained as far as possible from local sources and staff are also generally recruited locally and trained on site. The lodge water supply is gravity fed and solar power is used for lighting with power points limited to a central area allocated for recharging cameras and videos. Meals are freshly prepared with many local ingredients, offering a balance of international and locally flavored cuisine with meals being of several courses. The bar has a selection of local and imported beverages and friendly local staff will attend to your needs.
Hot beverages are available throughout the day on a self service basis, but are delivered to your cottage with early morning wake up calls as required allowing you to awake gently and savor the early morning sounds of the forest.
