The Central Buton Forest Camp is accessed via a 2-3 hour walk along a track (that can turn very muddy following rain). The trek in to camp involves 2 river crossings where walking sandals (eg TEVA) are recommended (to keep boots dry). Accommodation here is in hammocks with mosquito nets, and there are basic washing facilities built into the river, and trench style toilets. There is a covered eating area and all meals are cooked in camp by local staff. Lectures are also held in camp. Students are required to trek to nearby transects that comprise a mixture of primary and secondary forest habitats. Muddy tracks and small river crossings are a common feature of transects along which surverys are undertaken. The large river in which the camp is located makes a great spot to bathe and relax after a hard day of surveys!
