Review of Tanakita Camping Ground, Sukabumi

I always answer "Tanakita" whenever someone ask me what is my favourite camping ground that we have visited so far. Tanakita located in Sukabumi, a 3 to 4 hours car ride from Jakarta (depending on traffic). 

It is located inside the Pangrango National Park, so you will enjoy lush garden, the greenery from the forest, fresh air and a comfortable camping ground for your family.

The Tent at Tanakita

We ordered 2 tents for my family and @zkhairi's family. After some discussion, we decided to choose the tent close to the common area.

The ten was basic, with 4 beds inside. And yes it provides an electricity plug:p There's also a separate area where we could place our backpacks.

The Shared Bathroom

Yes, I knew this part is very important when you are taking your kids on glamping (glamorous camping).

Unlike the one we had when we stayed at Dusun Bambu Camping Ground, the toilet at Tanakita is shared with other guests. But it is separated between male and female, and don't worry, hot water is provided.

The Surroundings

From the first time we arrived at Tanakita, this spot is my favorite!

It was not only for me, but for the whole group. We love sitting at this little corner of Tanakita :)

Coffee, tea and hot water is provided 24 hours at the common area. You can take your own tea and coffee, and of course cup noodles.

The Food

Our package includes dinner on the first day, snacks on coffee break time, breakfast, and lunch on the second day. The foods were yummy.

Most of the time, Sundanese food were served

Things to note when you are taking your kids to Tanakita: sometimes the food is too spicy for the kids. Just be prepared. Bring enough snacks for your kids, you will not find any minimart around this place.

A Night Well Spent at Tanakita

When the night comes, everyone gathered at the common area. Everyone enjoyed dinner with live music performance from the crew.

Everyone was happy :)
Yeay, the grilled corn!

Trekking to Situ Gunung

In the morning, we went trekking about 30 minutes from Tanakita to reach a beautiful lake called Situ Gunung.

We took a ride on a boat at the lake. A special experience for our Kiddos.

It cost IDR 10,000 per person to take a ride on this boat
It was so peaceful at the lake

Kids Activities at Tanakita

Don't worry, there are lots of thing to do at Tanakita. Your kids will forget the gadget and the wifi during their stay:D

They could go inside the forest to take "getah" (rubber) from Damar tree (Genus Agathis), which will be used to turn on the camp fire. And they had experienced to turn on the campfire by themselves.

Let's turn the fire on!

They could swim and play at the river, which is located 20 minutes from Tanakita (we had to pay an additional fee to rent transport "angkot").

You don't play on the river at big cities, right? 
A free attraction for the kids, and they love it

And if your kids is adventurous, they could try the flying fox. This include in the price you paid to Tanakita.

Waiting for his turn
So happy!

Getting There

It is advised that you take train from Bogor Paledang station to Cisaat Station (just one station before Sukabumi Station). From there, you can ask Tanakita to organize a public transport (or called "angkot") for your family.

Taking the train will safe you lots of time, the traffic from Jakarta to Sukabumi on weekend is most of the time terrible.

A detail post on how to get to Tanakita by train, could be read here.

I am looking forward to spend another weekend at Tanakita. Being in the forest and looking at those giant trees was really refreshing. Not too mention, we had enjoyed our family time at Tanakita.
