What a green and wonderful stay we had here! It was an excellent experience and lived up to all claims and expectations.

3 Rivers Eco Lodge was greener than green can be, and genuine eco tourism. Using renwable energy, recycling, organics and loads of other stuff.

They run some serious community programs like a computers for schools program and teaching solar and wind classes.

It's everything it claims to be and more.
