"We stayed here recently and I cannot recommend it enough. Amazing hospitality shown to us morning, noon and night. Absolutely lovely staff. The food is exceptionally good home cooked food and prices are extremely reasonable. The staff will help arrange rafting trips on the River Drina and Tara. The River and surrounding landscape is staggeringly beautiful and you are living in the forest full of flowers and butterflies in a clean wooden hut in a forest beside a turquoise river. The set up is camp site style with shared facilities and a central ‘hall’ where there is a communal fire, drinks and meals. If you’re in the Balkans go to Bosnia; if you’re in Bosnia go to the Drina; if you’re in the Drina stay at Divlja Rijeka.|
"Very Recommended. Beautiful camp, tranquil place, located inside a forest very close to the river bank. We spent two nights in a small house (family of 5), toilets and showers are in a separate location and were clean. The Central building is were meals are served is very nice too. We did rafting with them and spent a lovely day with a very nice instructor (Gaga)."
