Enjoy the rhythym and pace of life in Sumatra. Make the most of the hot middle of the day by resting up for your afternoon/ evening activities.

This lodge is a beautiful, accomodating place to stay. The food is excellent and plentiful-- I even got to try durian fruit. The host and guides were knowledgable and helpful. I went to Satwa to ride an elephant, see monkeys, and see the rhino sanctuary. I also saw a wild elephant, was invited for tea and a video at the rhino sanctuary, saw monkeys, deer, and wild pigs from elephant-back, and saw monkeys up close on the river ride!

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent. A clean, simple, yet comfortable lodge, great food, friendly people, lots of things to do. Even wifi!
