A spectacular place to go on boat trips, extended camping trips, birding afternoons, mokoro (dugout canoe) rides, as well as sundowner cruises. If you're in the area, not to be missed!

We had an amazing 3 hours on mokoro along the river, silence, nature, paradise. Also, by taking a mokoro trip you support local communities, which is something i really appreciate about this area: very good care given to help comunnities and to protect nature.
