We had an amazing 4D3N stay at the lodge and we booked through Borneo Refugia Adventure. At first we were unsure how the surroundings would be as it is not primary forest in Kawag, but that did not matter at all! Animals know no boundaries and you have chances of seeing everything here. We were super lucky and had some amazing wildlife encounters. Much thanks to our superb guide Donny who did everything to make our walks as good as possible with many good sightings. As it is with nature and wildlife you still have to be in the right place at the right time, we were. During our stay we saw lots of wildlife such as; a herd of about 30 pygmy elephants, 4 orang-utans (at different times/days), long-tailed macaques, monitor lizards and lots of birds such as hornbills, pitta, eagles…
Traveling in Borneo is different from many places frequently traveled. The purpose of the trip is to view the unique wildlife. The accommodations are spartan and far different than other well-frequented tourist places. Please keep that in mind, regarding personal accommodations, and the trips purpose. You are here to see the pygmy elephants, and that is the focus. The rooms in the lodge are clean, a queen size bed was present, the conditioning worked, and the bathroom was fine. Dinner was served and was fine, simple, and well-prepared. The accommodations paled to the drive in the open bed of the truck to find the pygmy elephants, which we did as well as some hornbills, and even a wild orangutan.
We enjoyed our 2 nights' stay at the Kawag Rainforest Lodge which has basic amenities but its room was clean and comfortable, not to mention it's surrounded by the vast peaceful greenery of the Borneo rainforest. Our unforgettable experience was taking the jeep for the night ride through the forest in search of nocturnal animals. The friendly trained guide from Borneo Refugia tour operator was able to spot even the slightest movement of such animals in pitch darkness, to the delight of everyone on the jeep.
Overall the stay was enjoyed by our party very much. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food at every meal was excellent and they even made special chilli sauce so we could make it spicier. The activities during the day were well planned out but the guides were flexible if you wanted to do something different. On all the walks we did there were leeches but if you keep all your clothes tucked in you shouldn’t get a leech biting you. The only disappointing thing about our stay is they we did not see as much wildlife as we had hoped to have seen but that cannot be blamed on the lodge itself. Overall the stay was very nice.
