        The night before we asked Osman if we could leave really early for the morning boat trip, he said it wasn't a problem so we were all set for a 6am cruise. At about 540am, there was a knock on our door. Initially I thought...More

        With a group of 4 persons we are planning a trip of 2 days from Sandakan to Sukau. We would like to travel by boat to and from Sukau and stay one night in Sukau. Does Osman's Homestay facilitate such a boat trip? If yes can you inform me about times en costs, if not, does anybody know an organization who does offer such a trip against a reasonable price? Thanks in advance!

        My name is Chie Shimokawa and I am a japanese university student. My English is poor, but please give me the help. I am interested in the voyage of the river in this island in this summer. I make a ship or a raft with a local person and want to take a trip to the river. I know that a lower basin is cautious of in particular now. Because I want to carry out the plan in summer, I intend to go to Borneo Island to scout in about February. And because the extremely short-term homestay is included the field of vision as one means, I am glad if I have your introduce. And, Therefore the next question is thankful when I get information. 1. Is there the person who can make a ship of old form or a raft in this village? It is not a thing with the motor engine. 2. Is it dangerous that a boat anchors on a river at night? Are there the effective safety measures? I would appreciate very much if I have your prompt reply. I am looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks,

        Hi! We are Michele and Patrizia. We are two young guys and we don't have much money... so... we search in internet for a wild trip in the jungle to see the animals but they are to expensive for us. Please, can you say us how much you pay to Osman's Homestay?? And the activities and tours you did?? thank you very much!!
