The lodge is a c2hr drive form Sandakan, and a 5 min boat trip.
The rooms are built on stilts, none with river facing views. They are fairly basic, but there are showers, aircon and you need to remember that you are in a tropical rainforest and all supplies have to be brought in by boat.
The days centre around the early morning (6.30) and afternoon (4.30) boat trips which each last c2hours. we spent 2 nights there and our pckage gave 2 evening and 1 morning trip, all of which went to differing parts of the river. The evening trips focussed upon the mammals, Orangutangs, various monkeys, whereas the morning gave an opportunity to see lots of birds, The lodge guide who escort you are very informative.
During the day it's sitting by your room relaxing.
The buffet food is reasonable for the location, but don't expect a la care options, and the small bar is very limited, a couple of wines and some beer and soft drinks.
Overall a great place to see the wildlife, but don't expect 5 star rooms.More
