          I have read that it's very wet and muddy and necessary to borrow boots but they have limited sizes, my partner is UK size 13 (he struggles to get shoes to fit in UK so i am guessing they won't have anything at the lodge in his size) What is our other option if you say it's either hire the boots or don't go on the walk? How long is the walk? Other than the mud what is it like? Thanks

          which property are you referring to? The one in Kinabatangan or Sepilok. While both properties have the space for an extra child, the property at Kinabatangan has roll away bed.
