Satwa Elephant Eco Lodge is set in a lush tropical garden just 500 metres from the entrance of Way Kambas National Park, where the endangered and rare Sumatran elephant, rhino and tiger are protected. While tigers are only spotted on occasion, the elephant, gibbons, macaques and over 300 recorded bird species, including the endemic white winged duck, can be seen along the river from a park boat. The Sumatran Rhino is rarely seen but can be viewed in an international research centre in the park for which special permission is needed. Walking, cycling, or Elephant safaris are available, with trained local guides and mahouts available for hire. Conservation projects associated with the ecolodges make regular contributions to protecting the wildlife of Way Kambas National Park.
