“The definition of a perfect stay”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

Saha Forest Camp surpassed my expectations at every turn. We found a brochure for it in our hotel, and decided to go without any knowledge of what was really in store, and we are incredibly glad we chose it. We were picked up by a driver for the Camp and driven about 3 hours north of Tana to the nearest village, where we turned off the main road and continued on a rural dirt road for another 8 kilometers. When the road runs out, it is another 1/2 kilometer walk - at most - to the camp, situated in the most beautiful setting.

The Camp sits on a hill overlooking some small rice paddies and the protected forest area beyond, and after crossing a long bridge over the rice, you find yourself at the steps of a beautiful open air lodge / restaraunt. The "rooms" are individual huts with everything you need, beds, a bathroom with shower and toilet, and a balcony with great views of the surroundings; all of the huts face the forest. They're rather simply adorned, which only adds to the wonderful setting and feeling of relaxation. The food was delicious and plentiful, and the staff was extremely friendly.

We took a guided hike for 4+ hours through the forest, and our guide was also great; it seemed they really tried the entire time to be accomodating, even though we spoke only english and a few words of french; our guides and hosts knew enough english to convey everything, and they really seemed like they were trying to get us as much information as they could and have us enjoy our stay.

At the risk of going on and on, I'll stop here, but to close I have to say that I cannot recommend this place enough for a few days of relaxation and exploring the beautiful forest and village surrounding the Camp. Everything was perfect, and I would love to return again.

Room Tip: As far as I could see, all of the rooms were equal, and shared in the amazing views.
