We loved our stay at Bilit . Arriving at the lodge by boat, we were met with a warm welcome from the manager. The guides are all really friendly and knowledgeable and the boats are comfortable and dry. They supply life jackets but remember to...More

There was lots to see on the trips including monkeys and birds. If you want a chance to see the...More
Stayed for two nights at the bilit rainforest lodge and had a great time! The lodge is only accessible by boat. We arrived during a downpour.

Hi Darryl. Bilit lodge is a few hours drive from Sepilok where the Orang u tang sanctuary is. If you want to stay near the Orang Sanctuary- try Sepilok Jungle Resort - we loved it. Bilit lodge (loved this place too) is on the river and it does include the boat rides along (2 one at sunset - one at sunrise)the river to see birds, crocs, elephants, several kinds of monkeys. one of the guys does a night jungle walk - which you pay extra for - I think it was about $10 Aus. and you can buy beer :) and snacks at the lodge. the overnight fee includes your dinner and breakfast (which was good) don't expect 5 star at either place, there are 5 star places as well. up to you
