No less than 586 species have been recorded in the vicinity, including a number of endemics. The lodge plays an important role in conservation by protecting primary rainforest and contributing towards important conservation projects.
At the lodge, guests can enjoy a number of activities including boat excursions, hiking trails, birdwatching, canoeing and observing wildlife from the 50 metre high canopy tower located in the middle of the reserve.
