we stayed a couple of days in this luxery lodge near the river, we enjoyed the organized safaris on the boat, in the day, early morning and night, guides are very dedicated and the lodge is good organized
This lodge is in a very special location. We booked the lodge and guiding as a package. Our rooms were quite basic, but ok! Food is excellent. It worried us a bit that the resort is expanding! I really hope they can keep at least...More

The lodge and the location was beautiful. Our guide was very good and did his best to show us as much wildlife as possible. We were sad to only see the 3 resident orangutans, but no others. We did the pigmy elephant search at an...More

Hi Trekker, our entire lodge including all rooms, facilities and connecting boardwalk are built elevated on stilts so there will be no problem with leeches at Sukau Rainforest Lodge. If you're connecting onwards to Borneo Rainforest Lodge (Danum Valley), Kawag or Tabin, I'd certainly recommend getting them. We do sell leech socks at our gift shop in SRL as well in case you might need some but you won't need any at our place. Safe Travels!

We stayed here for 3 nights. We did two early morning boat trips and one late afternoon boat ride. Unfortunately we were not lucky enough to see the Pygmy elephants but other boats out at the same time did see them - the boats don’t tend to stick together so everyone sees different things. I guess it’s all a bit of luck as to which animals will be out and about when you are. We did see orangutans, crocodiles, proboscis monkeys, hornbills and several other monkey breeds. We felt we really got value for money - regardless of the fact that we did not see the elephants. On our second afternoon we visited the large bat cave - interesting experience. Again we were lucky and saw more orangutan. I don’t feel it would be necessary to book any other tours while you are at this resort.
