We had a lovely time in Borneo; we stayed in three different places over six nights. The highlight was our time in the wetlands on the Kinabatangan River. Such a beautiful place and we saw so many animals including a mum and baby orangutan! Our guide John was very knowledgeable and friendly and the two drivers we had were also super.
Hannah at Sticky Rice was very helpful and quick to respond and planned our trip well.

Our company's recent team retreat, organized by Sticky Rice Travel in Sabah, Malaysia, was an extraordinary experience that exceeded all our expectations. They arranged a mesmerizing gala dinner on the beach of Shangri-La Resort and stood out as the crown jewel of our retreat. The highlight of the evening was a traditional folk dance performance, showcasing Sabah's rich cultural heritage. The dancers' skill and the vibrant music created an enchanting atmosphere, leaving us all spellbound and providing a deep sense of connection to the local culture. Sticky Rice's expertise in providing individualized service was evident as they curated a program that perfectly blended Sabah's unique cultural and natural offerings with our diverse interests. We love our tour guide lead, Bedley, who is very passion, knowledgeable, fun and talented in singing as well!

I highly recommend Sticky Rice to any organization looking to provide a unique and enriching team experience in the vibrant setting of Malaysia.

My partner and I booked a last-minute 6D5N trip to Kinabatangan and Danum Valley in August, and Sticky Rice worked hard for us to make it happen. Phoebe was our contact and she was super helpful with the planning and was always available to talk if we had questions. Our guide, John, was friendly, patient, knowledgeable, and candid. We got lucky and saw loads of elephants, orangutans, gibbons, and countless birds - a dream come true for me. All of the transfers were seamless, tours well-organized, and the food and lodging, while not posh, were fully up to standards. Highly, highly recommended.

From the initial planning process through to the actual holiday, Sticky Rice were fantastic. Always quick to respond and they created a fabulous trip for us based on our requirements. Everything ran like a dream when we were there, with efficient and friendly transport between reserves. The guides in all 3 places that we stayed were amazing. Would thoroughly recommend.

We booked a 4D/3N trip to the Danum Valley through Sticky Rice. The experience was a real highlight of our time in Sabah.

We were met by Patric at Lahad Datu. He took us to register with the Field Centre and then drove us the 2.5 hours down the rutted, gravel road to the Danum Valley. Patric was great, even stopping along the way to point out wildlife - including a pygmy elephant.

Our guide, Henry, was brilliant. He knew so much about the Danum Valley and its wildlife. And knew exactly where to find them. Every time we went on a hike we saw something amazing - orang-utans, gibbons, hornbills. He organised a night ride and trip to Burkit Atur for sunrise for us. And he knew where to be for the best photos. We learnt so much from Henry and he helped make our visit really special.

Sticky Rice booked The Resthouse Deluxe for us, which meant air con and a hot shower between 7am and 11pm. It felt like real luxury.

Phoebe was also awesome when we were planning our trip. She was always happy to help with my endless questions.

The team at Sticky Rice were great to deal with at every step of the way. Highly recommend!

Sticky rice did a great job of organizing a two week trip to Borneo for our family. We were able to see a ton of natural landmarks as well as a huge array of animals. The kids loved going into the caves, taking boats up and down the rivers, as well as, snorkeling and watching the animals.
Rachel did a wonderful job of making sure our accommodations were up to par, and that we had all the transportation we needed to and from airports as well as between camps. She even answered her during a holiday evening to help us look for a pair of shoes one of my daughters lost. If we are back in the area, obviously used to curious again as name. Make sure we had a wonderful trip.

Stickyrice are an amazing company. I heard of them by word of mouth, and have been recommending them ever since.
I used their service to book trips to multiple places in Sabah. They were happy to combine activities based on my itinerary and interests, and everything was really smooth. Everything as advertised, very smoothly, and was easy to get in touch with them for help during the trip itself.

The trip was excellent from beginning to end. Sticky Rice really delivered. Our guide, Mike was a first class guide especially when he teamed up with Ali at the Eco Camp at Tungog Lake. They were amazing spotters of wildlife. We saw all that we hoped for and much more
