Basic but comfortable rooms. No air conditioning. Rates are negotiable depending on the type of tour you want to arrange. For a two-night stay, plus airport pickup and a guide, we paid about $300 apiece.

Breakfast, dinner and beverages are provided in an open-air dining room. There are several small kiosks within walking distance in the neighboring village where you can purchase snacks and drinks.

WHAT TO DO

Way Kambas National Park offers numerous options for hiking, bird-watching and wildlife viewing. Some wildlife, such as tigers, is especially hard to see. Be sure to visit the Sumatra Rhino Sanctuary and the Elephant Conservation Center.
