For every corporate business, family, adventure tourist and travel group, this venue represents one of the very best experiences and retreats myself and team have ever had, and we have been lucky enough to visit many venues internationally over the years. Coming from the rush of London, this immersive, beautifully designed Lodge is warm, modern, organic and a perfectly integrated luxury resort RIGHT in the heart of the jungle, like nothing we’ve experienced before.

The staff are wonderful and couldn’t do more to make you feel at home during your stay and you can’t help but make friends for life, even the owner took time to sit and get to know us, where we rarely stopped laughing!

In addition to the resort itself, I just can’t explain in words what an experience the Chimpanzee Tracking was, our guide was incredibly knowledgeable, thorough and kind the entire time we were together. From meeting the alpha male face to face and following him home to a quite literal ovation from his group, watching these interactions so closely was mesmerising and almost unbelievable at times. I cannot recommend this experience enough but to truly feel it, you have to see it for yourself!

An incredible moment in our lives that we were humbled to experience and from my heart I can’t recommend this venue enough to every single person who craves something different and naturally stunning.

Just amazing! Thank you for every second to the whole team and we cannot wait to come back!
