Samboja Lodge Samboja Lestari Reviews
Staying in a great project Aug 11, 2015
You stay in the Samboja Lestari. Reforestation/Rehabilitation is the core of the Samboja Lestari project with hundreds of indigenous species planted. By the middle of 2006 more than 740 different tree species were planted, not yet including the special collections in the arboretum. Their wish list includes 1716 selected tree species and every week they manage to get more species from this list. This huge and worldwide unmatched biological diversity in a project starting from scratch is already supporting hundreds of animal species, including nine species of primate, of which 8 showed up spontaneously in this quiet refuge of food rich greenery.
The Samboja Lodge is very comfortable. The rooms are spacious, clean, no insects and a nice balcony. Because you are in the middle of a big (jungle)forrest you eat in the lodge. The breakfast, lunch and dinner are buffet style. If you book with booking websites like Booking.com or Agoda.com food and tours are not included in the price.
Every day there are optional guided tours you can join. I joined visits to:
- orangutan islands, part of the rehabilitation project
- sun bear sanctuary
- nature trail (walk in the park from steel frame watchtower to the BOS office)
- boat trip black river
- canopy walk Bukit Bangkirai
Part of the Indonesia - Orangutans on land and in the sea travel blog
