Rimba Eco Lodge
The solar powered Rimba Eco Lodge is truly in keeping with its unspoilt environment, surrounded by forest and only accessible by boat. Proboscis monkeys and a resident troop of long-tailed macaques are frequently sighted from the lodge.
Rimba Eco Lodge is the only land accommodation within Tanjung Puting National Park, Kalimantan (Indonesian Borneo) and makes a great base to visit the nearby orang-utan feeding stations and the famous Camp Leakey rehabilitation centre.
Accommodation is in wooden cabins (most having private bathrooms) with comfortable beds, mosquito nets, air-conditioning and fans. Electricity is on from 5pm to 10am and there is good mosquito proofing. A series of boardwalks connect the rooms to the large restaurant which serves delicious local cuisine.
All rooms have hot water and mosquito nets, and some have air-conditioning and fans. There is also an excellent restaurant.
Proboscis monkeys, wild orang-utans, agile gibbons, silvered langurs, long-tailed macaques, estuarine crocodiles, Malayan false gharial crocodile, Storm’s stork, oriental pied hornbill, black and red broadbill and many fireflies. Clouded leopard and sun bear both occur in the park but are very rarely seen.
Excursions by boat into the National Park and to visit the organ-utan feeding and rehabilitation centres including Camp Leakey. Other activities include treks through the forest, village visits and an excursion to the Pesalat Reforestation Centre or far up the Sekonyer River to see the devastating effects of gold mining on the forest ecosystem.
Combine with an overnight stay on a klotok boat to truly experience the forest at night. The lodge is not allowed to sell alcohol, so bring your own if required.

We really enjoyed it here! We loved the simplicity and genuine nature of [Rimba Eco Lodge], and at the same time it was also very comfortable - the air conditioning was very much appreciated! The food was excellent, service excellent, and we particularly liked the way it fit into the eco-tour nature we were looking for.
