SEBANGAU NATIONAL PARK
Located in the Sebangau National Park, this ex-logging camp is now a thriving research station with students and researchers from around the world visiting every year. The camp has been improved greatly since it was first built in the 1990’s and now has accommodation for 35 people, an office, laboratory, library, solar panels, and common spaces for teaching and socialising. With local produce supplied by the nearby village, the kitchen staff cater to a range of dietary requirements and thanks to our cook Lis, who is also resident landscape gardener, has created beautiful scenery to relax and soak up rainforest life that surrounds the research base. It is a short, but unique, journey to camp from the village of Kereng Bangkirai. You will take a traditional canoe-like fishing boat called a kelotok across the river, then if river levels are low during the dry season, you will jump on a small train (yes, a train!), called a lori which will take you from the river edge straight into camp.
