Not that Oddballs' is uncomfortable, it's just a matter of degree. Bring an hat! regards peter

Hi, can I book directly with the lodge or I must go thru an agency? What is the offical website? Thanks.
"All tents / platforms are similarly close to water and thus the serenades! Cherish it as I did or take good earplugs."
"tents with bucket showers"
"No tents are better, only some got a direct riverview!"
"Take your time to enjoy Oddballs and prepare to just relax and enjoy nature"
"Along the river is best"
