Thank you to all of the staff at Kinabatangan Nature Lodge for ensuring that my friends and I had the most memorable experience during the Chinese New Year. We stayed in the Agamid Wing, everything was clean and well-kept. We had a tiny hole in our window screen and maintenance quickly attended to it. The food was all fresh and...

We chose their 3D/2N package based on the other reviews but also the price and number of cruises/jungle walks they offered. We were transferred from downtown Sandakan on their AC-ed bus (2-hour trip). Nice welcome with good briefing. Civet wing room is basic and small, with just enough space to put two twin beds, although the bathroom is spacious in...

We booked a 3d/2n package directly by phone and stayed in a dorm room with two other guys. The room was simple but with plenty of space. The toilets/showers are in a separate block and make sure you find the one shower with hot water (especially if the weather is cooler). We arrived in the pouring rain and got completely...

I am as ever happy when I am in a National park or just viewing nature. This place didn't disappoint (although the weather did). It rained A LOT. However it is the rainy season in a rainforest, so be expected. It was too muddy for a lot of the walks for me. i wear UK size 11 shoes, so no...

We stayed for 2 nights in an AC Amagid chalet. The AC wasn't a must but I highly recommend the Amagid chalets if within your budget. The schedule was great with 4 boat trips, 2 night hikes and a day hike. Our guide was amazing and we saw orangutans, proboscis monkeys, macqaues, hornbills, snakes, crocs, monitor lizards and more. The...

accommodation was fine, fairly comfortable dorm room, with a fan. Food was excellent and endless. Value for money was great 335 ringet booked from Harbourside backpackers in Sandakan (cheapest I found for 3D/2N). Boat rides were amazing, saw lizards, birds, eagles, orangutans, elephants, macaques, proboscis monkeys, crocs the lot! Night walks were interesting, saw scorpions, snakes, monkeys, birds.

Excellent, very unusual accommodation, worth the trip to get here. Lots and lots of nature, within the accommodation, even more amazing when you get on the river. We stayed an extra night here, it seems a lot itineraries suggest you travel further down river for one night, but it's not worth it, you have everything at this lodge, and more...

I did the 3 day 2 night trip and really enjoyed it. You really get back to the nature and the facilities are basic but what do you expect you are in the jungle! We saw lots of stuff over the three days, pygmy elephants wild orangutans, crocodile, monkeys and lots of birds. We had two guides and one in...

We extended our stay to a 4D3N package. Glad we did! For a little more you can book the upgraded chalet, good shower and more spacious. So many things to see, monkeys, even orang oetangs (4), birds, and crocodiles! Unfortunately no elephants. The night walk is exciting, in the dark, with torches and trying to stay away from leeches:). We...
