Accommodation at the project is located on the slopes of the Elephant Valley affording stunning views over the surrounding forest where many varieties of birds can be seen from eagles to hornbills. Sunset can be spent unwinding at the lounge/kitchen/dinning area, enjoying the amazing sounds of the nocturnal forest creatures and the gibbons calling as they prepare to sleep. Interestingly the main project buildings are made from mostly recycled and salvaged materials and have all been built by local villagers working with volunteers over the years.
We have four secluded self-contained jungle bungalows built in the traditional Bunong style. Each bungalow is basic but with comfortable furnishings such as a double bed with mosquito net, tables and a chair, and ensuite including cold water shower and western toilet. The floors are beautiful tiled terracotta.
*If you would like to stay in a Private Bungalow, we can only hold your booking and confirm one month in advance. This is because these are firstly reserved for our long-term volunteer program. If the Private Bungalow does fill, don’t worry we will then ensure you have a space in our Backpackers Dorm for your stay.
For those travelling on a budget or shorter time, we have a beautiful backpacker bungalow set into the hillside of the project. There is a selection of dorm style rooms (single, twin and triple), with shared bathrooms set amongst forest surrounds.
Our group bungalow (also known as the Hefalump House) caters to groups of up to 16 people (as it has 4 beds per room), with 4 shared bathrooms and two great little chill out areas. Perfect for university groups or educational groups wanting an amazing experience in the jungle.
Please Note: The base camp’s electricity supply is powered by generator from approximately 6pm until 9pm, when you will have lights and be able to recharge those all important camera batteries. It is essential that you bring a torch for all other times, and for walking between the bungalows and the kitchen/lounge/dinning area.
Housekeeping will make up the rooms each day, and there is a free laundry service available for stays longer than 2 days.
