Good to see their caring for the animals in rehabilitation. Friendly assistances when we requested to move huts for a better view. Unfortunitly the firts hut had lots of cockroaches the second also had a couple. Other than that nice out in nature experience.

Got to go off road for about 2km before you get to the location. Not very suitable if you've got a small car. The place is wonderful though. Comfy log cabins in the mountain surrounded by nature. Pleasant and relaxing

Secluded retreat. Maybe a few reassuring signposts towards the lodge could help
