Tanjung Puting National Park, Indonesia
On the banks of the slow-moving Sekonyer River in Kalimantan, the Rimba is a superbly sited ecolodge, offering a unique springboard from which to explore the wonders of the nearby Tanjung Puting National Park. It’s only reachable by boat: you arrive at a wooden jetty deep in the heart of the rainforest, leading directly to your spacious, en-suite chalet-room. Although not luxury, facilities are impressive for such a remote location. The beds are large, and you get a private stilted deck to sit on in the evenings, when the exotic sounds of the Borneo jungle fill the tropical air.
