The cabins offer simple accommodation with local textiles, ceiling fans, spacious en suites with indoor/outdoor showers, and verandas overlooking the jungle. The Long House provides four budget twin rooms.
The Main Lodge houses a buffet-style restaurant showcasing traditional local cuisine. Plans are underway to construct a swimming pool.
The wetlands are of international importance, with an array of rare and endangered mammals, birds, reptiles and flora. Trained guides accompany guests on day and night explorations, along with morning and afternoon river cruises. Local villages visits can also be arranged.
