If weather permits, you may witness a captivating summertime light show courtesy of fireflies as you make your way back to the lodge for dinner.

Wake up to the sounds of gibbons and hornbills in the rainforest. After a quick bite, we will set out for a short morning hike.

Thereafter, return to the lodge to freshen up before enjoying a scrumptious breakfast at Kapur Restaurant.
Following breakfast, if weather and sea conditions permit, we’ll embark on a river cruise adventure along the coastline, venturing into the Segama River and its mangrove forest. Keep your eyes peeled for a chance in wildlife encounters, such as flying foxes, eagles, and dolphins.
Head back to the lodge to relax and refresh before a hefty lunch.
Post-lunch, go on for a rainforest hike where you’ll visit our Mammal Hide. There, you’ll be able to see the camera traps that we have set up and see the many footage we have captured whilst learning about the nocturnal animals in the area. Have light refreshments in the hide before we return to the lodge for free at leisure.
Explore our lodge further at the information gallery, shop for souvenirs, savour our premium in-house beverages at the restaurant and take a dip in our dip pool to beat the heat.
When the sun sets, tantalise your taste buds with a delicious dinner, and proceed to head out for a night safari drive around the lodge. Experience the serenity of the night and keep an eye out for nocturnal creatures like civets, leopard cats, mouse deer, and moonrats that rule the night.
Return to the lodge for a good night’s rest.
Rise and shine to the sounds of the jungle and make your way to our Crested Fireback hide and seek out this elusive endemic bird. Return for a hearty breakfast and enjoy your time free at leisure.
