Island Safari to camp Ngey! Ngey!

5days / 4nights

The NEW project from Tao Philippines.

The Lostboys have taken over the abandoned resort of Manguengey in Busuanga. A remote island in Palawan.

Camp Ngey! Ngey! is our crusoe-style deserted island camp, paradise for those who understand the luxury of simplicity and disconnection.

The camp retains the remains of the old resort, reclaiming the typhoon-wrecked building parts and old furniture; a mix of playful architecture and sociable spaces. Adding Tao's signature individual bamboo Tuka huts for sleeping.

The island camp experience allows for spaces to retreat and find peace and solitude, and when you are ready there are sociable places to connect and share time with other like-minded adventurers.

Explore the island: The camp is on the main beach with jungle trails to access further 3 wild beaches, Encompassed by its crystal blue waters, preserved reefs teaming with life, windswept cliffs and hidden caves.

No room service, no menus, no WiFi.
You will arrive as strangers, you will eat together, swim together, laugh together, drink together, get to know each other offline, face to face, become part of the magic of Tao and see what happens!

Welcome to Camp Ngey Ngey: a Neverland for escapees searching for a break from the noise of the modern world.

How is this experience different to the Tao Expedition?

Camp Ngey Ngey has a more relaxed chilled out vibe, staying in one place. How you spend your days is up to you. A stay on the island is a great place to get in the mood before your expedition or to decompress afterwards.

Is this experience for me?

Before applying to take part in this experience you must understand that what Tao offers is not a resort or a hotel. This island camp is our expression of paradise, we value a close connection to the natural world. This means that certain creature comforts that block this connection you will not find on our island. We have shared bathrooms, limited fresh water, limited electricity but we have the sea breeze, the sound of the waves and the starry skies on offer.

We love it, but we understand that this is not everyone's idea of a holiday.

The island camp experience allows for spaces to retreat and find peace and solitude, and when you are ready there are sociable places to connect and share time with other likeminded adventurers. Its up to you to find your own definition of paradise within the framework of Tao.
