Although more simplistic and less stylish than some of the other camps, the staff and friendly small personable atmosphere of this place made up for that ten times. The rooms were nice, spacious and clean. The welcome and kindness of the staff members were faultless. Delicious food. Our great time here could not have been completed without our guide Aslan....

Please think again if using this company. I paid upfront a few months before arriving in Borneo, roughly £200+ for a 2D1N stay and cruises. My wife was taken seriously ill 5 days before our stay.. We had to change all our plans and leave Sandakan for Kota Kinabalu. I had part or full refunds off all the tourist companies...

They picked us up at the hotel where we were staying, but they came 1 hour late. Not a big deal, but also not very professional. Our package included 6 activities: 5 river cruises and 1 that we could choose between day tracking and night cruise. We choose the day tracking, but this is something everyone can do by themselves....

A ten minute boat ride from the jetty of Kanpung village (Sabah, Borneo - 120 km from Sandakhan airport) ), will get you to this resort. The ride is superb as the river runs across the forest unfolding the charm as you move along. A warm welcome from the staff at the riverside followed by being led down a boardwalk...

The rooms themselves were a little disappointing given the money you're paying. The beds were pretty comfortable though and you have hot water after 6pm. The food was great and they were happy to accommodate us veggos. The staff were extremely friendly, a little overbearingly so. Although I'm not used to doing guided trips. Our guide was great, knowledgeable when...

This is a camp by the river, it's a bit rough but clean and comfortable and the food is quite good. The camp is close to the nature reserve and you can easily take a boat there. Unfortunately it's not as easy to spot animals as I expected, but this has nothing to do with the camp.

We did the 3 days/2 nights tour. The overall stay was really great. The camp is situation further down the river than other camps and is further into the jungle. It's quite basic and bare, but the facilities are clean, working and have everything you'd need. There isn't any AC or wifi, which didn't matter too much since it got...

Giving best scores for knowledgeable, friendly & helpful staff and wonderfully prepared local food as well as location along Kinabatangan River. Stayed 4 nights but three would have been just right. Accommodations were basic and clean and ceiling fans only as might be expected for a jungle camp. Guided boat tours individualized for our group of five with local guide...

We stayed at Kinabatsabah jungle lodge end July. We were in for a jungle experience, so did not have any expectations of luxury, so we were quite ok with that. There were many positives, which I'll start with: - staff is good, they are courteous, smiling, responsive - the pick up and drop off arrangements are good, and worked well...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Kinabatangan Jungle Camp was established in the year 2004 in the lower Kinatangan Wildlife Sanctuary near the village of Bilit. The whole concept is simply truly jungle. Today, many repeat visitors especially birders still come to KJC to search for the very illusive Bornean Ground Cuckoo and others still try their luck to see the Clouded Leopard. ... more   less
