Very well organised Meals good - rice and curry for lunch and dinner Ac in dorms as well as chalets Brilliant guides and staff
One of our highlights in Malaysia - Smooth pick up from our hotel in Sandakan and 2 hour transfer to lodge. Very clean cabins and decent food. All was very organized when we arrived we had a greeting and outline of the plans for the days. For a small fee you can rent wellies torches and binoculars there is also a small shop to buy chips, beer and soft drinks. Wine is available but super expensive.The sightseeing program (all included for us) was really good. Early morning boat cruise for 1 hour then breakfast. A 1 hour hike then lunch. free time until 4pm boat cruise for 2 hours. 7pm was dinner and 8pm was the night walk. We very much enjoyed all the activities. we stayed for 3 nights and felt the last day the information on the 2 walks was repetitive. We were very lucky we saw elephant, big croc, all the monkeys, a bearded pig many hornbills and birds it was great. I would highly recommend Nature Lodge Kinabatagan.
Overall lovely staff, very comfy beds, good food and atmosphere.
The bathrooms didn't have toilet paper for over a day until I told the lady . They weren't particularly clean. Our guide barely took time during the night walks to try to spot any animals or insects. A bit longer would have been required to get to see more animals and insects.
We loved our boat guy Omar showing us all the animals on the river cruises.
The room was basic but clean and comfortable with good air con. Ensuite was good with a roomy shower. The meals included were very tasty. The included tours were good fun and all the guides were great. All staff were friendly and helpful. We saw lots of wildlife including a wild orangutan. We enjoyed our stay and would happily return.
The airport transfer pick up process was a very long process. Drop off was much quicker.
