I Stayed at the Borneo Nature Lodge as part of a 3 day 2 night package. The rooms are very pleasant and exactly what you should expect from a nature lodge. I personally found the food delicious, generous portions and the staff extremely welcoming and helpful, Walter and his team do a great job.
The river safari’s are outstanding, I had an extremely knowledgable guide (kurt) who clearly had a passion for animal conservation and improving their habitat. Very lucky to see an Orangutan and her baby in the wild, along with proboscis monkeys, macaques, silver leaf, crocodiles and hornbills. The only thing I didn’t see was a Pygmy Elephant, but this is real nature and you won’t see everything. The river is quiet as the tours are not fully back running post pandemic so this may impact future visitors as numbers increase.
Do bring your own water bottle so you can refill and help reduce plastic waste, the constant supply of Sabah tea is also very good.
Insect repellent a must, you are in nature, although the staff do everything to keep the mosquitoes at bay naturally, make sure to keep doors closed.
A fantastic lodge that is very well run and genuinely cares about nature and protecting it. So glad I was recommended to stay hereMore
