I spent 5 Days in Tangkoko Lodge in the beginning of November. From the moment Bobby met me at the Airport of Manado in the middle of the night the 2nd of November until he dropped me at the same place the 7th of November I had a marvellous time. I have been travelling frequently the last 10 years in... More

We stayed here for 2 nights to do some jungle trekking with a guide. The accommodation is basic but clean and pleasant to stay in. The owners are lovely and the guides amazing. It's not far to the black sand beaches where you can see the local kids playing and the fishermen bringing in their daily catch. They sorted out... More

Staying at Tangkoko Lodge was like being part of Bobby's (the owner) family. We were there on business and the entire staff went out of their way to make us comfortable and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast at 5am, no problem, borrow some snorkels, washing done etc etc. As a veggie food can be difficult but I always had... More

The people who work here are very friendly indeed and the food is not bad. We stayed here 1 night and visited nearby Tangkok NP at the end of the afternoon: we saw a male thornbill bird, a number of tausiers, a tarantula and a kingfisher; and in the morning, we were lucky to see a very large group of...

Bad things: - bed was not comfortable, it was thin foam actually - the mosquito net in the front cottage was too small for the bed and also had holes - toilet seat looked awful with black marks all over it - not a lot else to do around the lodge, the reserve was the only thing to do; with... More

I loved my time at Tangkoko lodge. We felt like a part of the family. Bobby is fantastic as a guide and also for what he does for the local community and conservation in the area. The rest of the family are very friendly and the children were lovely too - always interested in what we were up to. The... More

Let me start with a few words to thank the owner of Tangkoko Lodge, Bobby for his hospitality in being our host for the few days we spend in the national parc. He is one of these guys that you will always remember as your guide, friendly and keen te help anywhere/anytime, with even some basic understanding of Dutch. Although... More

Basic bungalows with little furniture, that we can consider as clean in Indonesia. The owner does his best to arrange the trips and is a very funny guy. Looking for tarsiers and black monkeys was fabulous. It is good for a night stay, but I would not recommend to stay longer in the place, which is functional, but I would... More

On the whole I am not impressed with Tangkoko lodge and also with Tangkoko National Park. However let me start with the good things about this place: They have some of the best guides working with them, including the owner Bobby. The guide I had (Friednand) was excellent at spotting birds where I would have simply walked past without noticing... More
