This camp is accessed via a 1-2 hr hike over fairly flat terrain. This hike includes several river crossings, so river shoes (marine booties) are a necessity. The north Buton forest camp is set up with camp beds and mosquito nets inside large army style tents . There is a communal eating area, and a forest lecture theatre. There is a basic field toilet and shower system in camp, or bathing can also be done in the nearby river (recommended!). The terrain on transects at this camp is very steep, and, due to heavy rainfall, often very muddy! However, floating and socialising in the quietly flowing river after a tough survey is a relaxing and tranquil post-survey treat!
