Great to back here and find it still as good as ever. Seamless pickup via Trailfinders, geat scenic flight (bit larger plane this time) and still the same excellent guides, hosts, food and rooms. We both ride horses and had had emails with the lodge and Hidden Valley Trails near Cooktown to try to arrange a day ride when others were on the trip to Cooktown. Great when a plan comes together - we had an excellent over 4 hour ride through the bush, including lunch by a billabong. Hopefully this will be an option for future guests - do ask if it appeals to you. Apart from this eccentricity, the bush walk, river trip and Wujal Wujal Falls were still excellent too - plus watching birds and the view from our balcony. We didn't go on the reef trip this time but would reccomend it from the past - good snorkelling and fishing. Excellent food and still the same chefs as in 2005 which must be a reccommendation too. Same guides too who have superb knowledge of the bush and the local community. Do take proper walking shoes and no good if you are an insectophobe. Save up and go!
