The fan runs with a timer,... More

Thomas, Rietje and Hans are just soooo helpful. I've never experienced anything like it. Whether it was organising a guide for a number of fully customised trips to record bird and nature sounds, arranging meetings with musicians, help with transport or tips for food, these guys were always eager to share their passion for Kalimantan and help wherever they can....

He also arranged, on short... More

Yes, we're very thankful that our guests like it here! The nature around us is lovely. We are glad that also the hammock, which is in the tree hut, is so appreciated. If you, reader, want to come to Palangka Raya, the capital of one of Indonesian Borneo's provinces, you ar more than welcome to come and take a look! More
