2N3D stay at Kinabatangan River
Jan 2020
While few details were provided about the activity at time of booking, it turned to be a great experience. We were picked up at the airport at noon and shuttled to the lodge in the Kinabatangan wildlife reserve. There we had two night and two morning cruises, night and day jungle walks and 4 meals per day with free coffee and tea. Chalet was comfortable, staff very friendly and the cruises full of animal sightings. While the whole package is less than 48h long (departure is at 8am) it's still very good value for money and would definitely recommend it.

magnificent guide service with unforgettable wildlife experience
Dec 2019
i spent 5 days start from Sandakan and finished in Telupid with guide Charles. he was so great on wildlife knowledge and kindhearted service. he could easily recognize what bird or mammal could be by listening the sounds of them. when we did the night walk in Kingabatangan since it was quite muddy somehow, and i had my big camera with me so sometimes might not be able to catch the group easily. he will always support me and help me, while i was going to do the night photos he will help to put the light on the object. my experience could be harder without his help. i was so lucky to have a guide like him around. i will def recommend the tour from Top peak, for sure Charles will be the best option to work with!

Top Peak Travel fantastic organisation for us. Highly Recommend.
Jul 2019 • Couples
Everything Walter at TOP PEAK TRAVEL in Kota Kinubalu organised for us turned to gold! We particularly loved the visit for 3 of us from New Zealand for 3 days 2 nights staying at the Tanjung Bulat Jungle Camp up the Kinabatagan River. This was the highlight of our holiday in Borneo. We also organised through Top Peak other accommodation to enable visits to Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary, World War 2 Memorials, Mt Kinabalu trip etc... All was well organised through Walter at TOP Peak Travel KK. Thankyou so much Walter for your thorough organisation & planning that you completed for our trip. We had an amazing time! Your planning for us was detailed and all worked perfectly. Every single person staffing tourist activities that we were involved in for this trip to Borneo were exceptional! This includes guides to drivers to boatmen etc.. On time (or often early & waiting for us ... amazing), sincere & warm people, respectful, knowledgeable & more importantly went the extra 100 miles to ensure everything was right for us. This just blew us away. We travel alot each year around different parts of the world. This is not always the case in other countries however consistently experiencing this in Borneo was amazing. Hope Borneo is never spoilt and the people's wonderful & caring attitudes remains the same. Our itinerary went like clockwork. Worked perfectly & efficiently. The drivers & guides you used for us were great. They had passion for their wildlife & people and paid attention to detail for our safety & comfort. Thankyou. Appreciate your assistance. Highly recommend TOP PEAK TRAVEL Kota Kinabalu to everyone!!

Defintely surprised - not the fault of the Lodge
Mar 2019 • Couples
Before we arrived we googled the location to better understand what was provided at this facility. Kinabatangan River Eco-Lodge is not the name of Lodge - in fact the place we arrived at was a Bush Camp with very basic amenities which were never explained on the ad. Basic - generator electricity, nature toilets and bucket system baths. Would not had problem with this if this was explained. For nearly $500 per couple which converted to Malaysian Ringgit $1500 - MYR750 a day, I would also question the value for money.

Hello, we were very sorry to hear about your confusion. As a result, we have revised the title of this trip so it will be more clear to guests looking to book with our environmentally friendly eco-lodge. The satisfaction of our guests is of utmost importance and we do not want anyone to feel that they were misled. We wish to complete the story of your stay so our future guests have no confusion about what happened here: When you contacted us about your confusion and displeasure with the accommodation, we immediately jumped into action and made arrangements for you at a different lodge. For no additional charge, we upgraded you and sent you to another lodge with air-conditioned rooms and en-suite bathrooms as well as provided the transportation to the other lodge. We swallowed the additional costs of this upgrade and transportation out of our dedication to making sure our guests are satisfied. During our phone conversations with you, it became clear to us that when you "googled the location" you had actually spent your time looking at other lodges with different amenities in the Kinabatangan River area. Additionally, you indicated what you had seen during your internet searching did not match what you found when you arrived, yet you hadn't actually viewed information relevant to this location, which is very much an eco-camp (Tanjung Bulat Jungle Camp). At any time before your arrival, you would have been able to contact us through Viator and we could have answered any of your questions and cleared up any of your confusion about the location. Despite all of this, we did everything we could to make sure that your experience on the Kinabatangan River was not disappointing and we truly hope that you enjoyed the alternate lodge we sent you to and that you found a level of comfort that was agreeable. On a final note, perhaps you don't fully understand the costing of the tour, given the fact that you didn't actually stay at Tanjung Bulat or partake in any of the river cruises or night walks. If you had, you would have learned that a large portion of the profits gets put back in to conservation and community development efforts. They have already planted more than 3000 trees to help the recovery of the area. These trees are bought from local growers in the area at more than triple the normal price to make it worthwhile for the community to grow them. Additionally, they have installed holding areas for the local fishermen to deposit their catch and keep the fish fresh until they take it to market, allowing the fishermen to fetch a higher price for their fish. This was done at no cost to the fishermen. In exchange, the fishermen simply have to help eradicate the invasive water hyacinth that would otherwise destroy the oxbow lake on which the eco-lodge is located. In closing, we want to once again apologize for your confusion and we truly hope the alternate arrangements that were made for you were agreeable and that you had a great time in Borneo. We will continue to review our description of this activity and amend it as necessary to make sure that future guests are clear on the location and the amenities.
