We visited Tangkoko Lodge as part of a private tour while staying in Lembeh. We left our hotel at 4 a.m. so that we could arrive at the lodge early enough to get in some good bird viewing. Before we were 5 minutes into the park our host, Bobby, had already pointed out 4 different bird species. We hiked through... More

Don't expect much of the Lodge, It really needs an upgrade! But the owner Bobby and his staff are very friendly ( Mr Kletskous ;-) ) breakfast , lunch and dinner is very good and fresh, we've eaten fresh fishes, fruits, nasi putih and goreng, salad en mixed vegetables, and off course coconutmilk with a straw. The arriving day we've... More

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...

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
