Biological Station

You stay at the Biological Station in the middle of the National Park, in a clean but rustic cabin. The meals are served ‘family style’ and you share them with other guests, students and scientists who also stay at the Biological Station. This is an excellent way to learn more about the local research projects in the park.
A hike with an experienced guide is included in your stay. For sure you will spot different types of birds and learn more about the flora and fauna. If you’d like you can also book an extra (boat) tour.
