About Prime - forest Perucica

Wild and untouched jungle and one of the last oases of nature in Europe. The most precious and the biggest pearl of NP Sutjeska natural treasure in Perucica. For centuries it has been resisting to civilization and human desire to conquer her due to material interests. While that may be so, but through centuries her inaccessibility was her biggest defense and in 1952, Perućica was pronounced a strictly protected reserve of nature, like one of the last remaining primeval forests in Europe.

When you arrive atthe „Dragošsedlo“ viewpoint, where you can see 13 000 hectares of brutal and clean nature, it is experience on its own, but when you look deep into the profound and see unreal image of wild beauty and waterfall „Skakavac“, and how it falls down along vertical rocks in length of 80 meters with all its force. It`s a breath taking sight, and definitely amazing. And when you thought how phenomenal it would be to go under the waterfall in that moment, you awaken the adventurer gene and spirit, that all of us carry deeply buried inside ourselves. A view from Dragos sedlo to Skakavac is memorable, a captivating sight that is a symbol of the landscape.

How from huge down thrown rotten tree a new life begins and how a thin new tree battles with 50 meter highlanders, a few centuries old, for their place under the sun can’t be written, it has to be seen. To go deep into the heart of the jungle and to put a crown on that effort by a shower under the waterfall, while thousands of icy drops fall on you like frost, is truly unforgettable experience of a lifetime The primeval forest is a strictly protected area and along with those principles, during your visit, we must behave with respect and must not ruin what Mother Nature unselfishly gave to us.

PRICELESS !!! We were delighted first time we came here, and second we were overwhelmed again. Encijan is arranged and clean but still wild, without exaggerating - a real fairy tale. Tara, one of the most beautiful river I have ever seen, here is unreal, almost like emerald. People and service were excellent all the time and we felt like home. Just imagine yourself deep in the highest river canyon in Europe , surrounded with untouched nature and peace. One is for sure, this atmosphere and scene you will never forget. Unique place and people and much more 🙂

So great When I decided to go rafting with my boys and friends, I expected beauty, but now I was thrilled. The camp is beautiful. The service is top notch. Great food. A great skipper on rafting. I would recommend it to anyone who loves untouched nature, relaxing by the river and the chirping of birds and a real Tara experience. We will definitely come again.

The most amazing place I have been going to this camp 4 years in a row now with my friends... This is the most amazing place, beautiful camp - like from the fairytale 🙂 Nature is unreal, view and the river also. Food in the camp is the best food we ever had, you can't buy this in any restaurant 🙂 Definitely we will be going again and make visits traditionally once a year at least!

We'll be back Apsolutno bez ikakve zamerke na bilo šta. Domaćin je, pre svega, gospodin. Osoblje je prijatno, sve je laganica, bez ikakve frke i žurbe, što apsolutno i priliči ovakvom mestu. Stvoreno za opuštanje. Hrana je odlična, smeštaj i kućica u kojoj smo bili uredni i čisti. Definitivno se vraćamo, možda čak i jako brzo.

Vraćaćemo se! Prvi put sam u Encijan došla kada sam imala 9 godina. 15 godina kasnije - i dalje se vraćam. Možda je dovoljno reći da se desilo da mi je pao rođendan na vikend kada smo u kampu i da gazda, kada je to saznao, angažovao ljude da mi donesu tortu u kanjon. Milan Šerpas i ekipa učine da svako ko dođe odluči da obavezno dođe još jednom, ili bar preporuči drugima da posete. Smeštaj je udoban i čist, Milan uvek vodi računa da na najbolji način rasporedi goste po njihovim potrebama. Smeštajne jedinice su od 3 do 7 kreveta, uglavnom bungalovi. Toalet i tuševi su odvojeni od jedinica, ali ih ima veliki broj te je čekanje zaista svedeno na minimum. Volela bih da dočaram oduševljenje moje ekipe hranom, ali ću ipak ostaviti da se još neko sam iznenadi. Bitno - raspon i izbor su ogromni, niko neće ostati gladan a i ukoliko iz bilo kojih razloga ne možete da jedete nešto iz tog izbora, oni vam uvek dodatno spreme nešto. A obradovaće vas i krofnama! Mesta za odmor i opuštanje ima i više nego dovoljno - od hamoka, preko ležaljki, stolova sa stolicama na više mesta u kampu. Vaše je samo da nađete šta vam se najviše sviđa. Spust niz reku je sjajan, nekad dinamičniji u zavisnosti od doba godine (jul-avgust je najniža i najmirnija voda; april-maj najviša i najbrža). Skiperi su jako iskusni i fenomenalni momci. Spust kao spust nije opasan što svedoči da sam ja išla sa 9 godina a moja sestra sa 5. Dobija se kompletna oprema i uz slušanje instrukcija koje daje skiper - nema opasnosti ni za najmlađe. Posle večere često bude svirka sa muzikom uživo, kamp ima svoje ozvučenje a vrlo često i gosti nose svoje zvučnike te može i da se proveseli uveče. Upaljena je logorska vatra, ceo kamp je osvetljen malim fenjerima te je ambijent uveče možda i lepši nego tokom dana. Za one koji bi ranije legali i žele kompletan mir preporučujem da traže smeštajne jedinice bliže toaletima a dalje od šanka/kuhinje/centralne vatre. Kamp se nalazi na samom početku dela koji je predviđen za spust i u tu tačku dolaze ljudi i iz ostalih kampova, tako da ne dozvolite da vas razočara što se najduže vozite dok drugi brže stižu. Vaša nagrada je da ujutru ne morate u opremi da se vozite do početne tačke, već samo sednete u čamac i krenuli ste. Šanse su da ćete na par dana zaboraviti obaveze i samo se isključiti od stresa. Dolazila sam sa mnogo ljudi u životu a dobila sam samo jednu zamerku: Što smo došli samo na tri dana?

Nema bolje Već sedmi put smo muž i ja gosti ovog kampa, što govori o tome da li smo zadovoljni. A malo je reći da smo zadovoljni, jer ono što pruža ambijent, osoblje, kvalitet usluge i hrane retko gde se nalazi. Ovo mesto je naš privatni raj, beg od histerične svakodnevice i prilika za mentalni i fizički reset. Besprekoran domaćin, uvek zanimljivi gosti, a svaki sledeći dolazak je nova avantura koja pruža i više nego što očekujemo. Nema greške. Za svaku preporuku! Ivan i Jasmina Miljković, Beograd

Mind-blowing! Not your average, generic camp! With all due respect to other camps, there's no comparison between Encijan and others! Location of the camp is unbeatable, untouched nature all around, beautiful cabins and common place that conform to surrounding nature and a view of magnificent turquoise Tara. The staff couldn't be more polite, they really make you feel taken care of. And the food is.. WOW! And if you have some special requests regarding your nutrition (vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, etc.), you need not worry, all your wishes will be met with. August of 2020 was the second time I went to Encijan, first time with my family and this time with friends, so it's safe to say that this camp is perfect for everyone and for every occasion. And I had fun every time 🙂 In conclusion, I wholeheartedly recommend Encijan! ♥
