Suaya

Access at SUAYA

If you want to see the Tau Tau figures up close, Suaya is the easiest place to go. From the car park, a short path, though not paved, leads to the foot of the rock.  

Access at KAMBIRA 

Getting down to the baby grave tree is only possible via a staircase. The steps are flat and when dry, we assist guests in wheelchairs to go down there.

Stairs in Londa

Access at LEMO AND LONDA

The famous rock tombs and Tau-Tau of Londa and Lemo are both located at the foot of a valley. Long stairs lead down there. Both rocks are also visible from above, with Lemo offering better visibility. The stairs in Londa are mostly relatively flat and equipped with a handrail.

Access at BORI

Apart from five steps to get onto the compound, the small ceremonial site is easy to explore. Paths are well-paved, partly have some gradient.

Palawa

Access to PALAWA

It is possible to drive directly to the village by car. Paved ground makes exploring the village easy.

Access to BATUTOMONGA AND LOKOMATA

The road along Batutumonga up to Lokomata is well maintained. There are a number of spots to stop and admire the scenery. It is also possible to follow some paths into the fields.

Festung Rotterdam

Access at FORT ROTTERDAM

The inner court of the Fort is on ground-level and well-paved. It is possible to get onto the old walls via old ramps, which however is bumpy. 

Access at BENTENG SOMBA OPU

The large park can be explored on mostly well-paved alleys. It is allowed to enter the traditional houses, but they all have stairs at the entrances, some easier to overcome than others.

Access at PAOTERE HARBOUR

The traditional port of Makassar is easy accessible without any steps. 

Access at LEANG LEANG CAVES

The ancient caves are located in a magnificent landscape of Kast mountains. A drive through this landscape is already worth a visit. Some caves can be seen from the street. A few caves are accessible to visitors with reduced mobility.
