Made the 3D/2N-Tour. Very well organised. Everything from the pick-up to the drop-off went as planned. Stayed in a Civet-Wing hut which is simple, basic but it does the job as you will not sleep very much anyway (with night-walks and early morning cruises) and do not spend time there during the day. It is fan-cooled (it was not hot... More

You can not get anymore authentic than Nature Lodge! You want wildlife? Up close and personal? Come let Nature Lodge take you away. The guides were exceptional, knowledgeable and experienced. They were enthusiastic and reverant at the same time. Personally I stayed an extra three nights as being that cut-off from the outside world and in a total jungle habitat... More

A bit late I am afraid as we were there back in October, but the memory is till fresh in my mind. I was with my son who is a keen herpetologist and has been out in far east for 3 years and has accumulated an amazing amount of knowledge of animal species during tis time. We did the 3D/2N.... More

A friend and I were here for 3 days and 1 night. They really make the effort to enhance your chances of seeing the primates you are hoping to see. And we have pretty much seen all the different types out there. We have even seen an orangutan! Yeay! There's a nightwalk, a trekking in the afternoon and several boatrides,... More

We booked a 3 day 2 night tour here with a travel agent, but be warned, it is really only 1.5 days, as you arrive at about 3.30pm on day 1 and leave at 8am on day three, so a bit cheeky to sell it as 3 days. We had a twin cabin (weren't offered anything else, but I think... More

I do not know the exact price people pay to stay at this place, as I booked it through a tour. I found the place to be nice, and the staff to be excellent. The meals are quite good for what one would expect of an all-inclusive place. There is, however, not much to do here, and you cannot see... More

we stayed in the deluxe chalets with air con as a bit of luxury. It was nice to have a large ensuite with warm showers and the wooden floors with rug gave the cabin a cozy and homely feel. This is not luxury by hotel standards but it was better than I had been expecting for a jungle camp. The... More

This resort has a very good programme to experience the nature on the Kinabatangan river. We saw Orangutang and proboscis monkeys which was Awesome. But unfortunately the resort food is poor - extremely westernised. We had fried chips for breakfast yuk. There a cats in the resort which whine at your feet when you are eating. If they could introduce... More
