This is a well-situated camp on the banks of the Kinabatangan river. There is a good-sized dining/relaxing area and the food is very good indeed. The ladies who cook and serve the food are very friendly and work hard. The guides are pretty good, too....More

Simply the best. I stayed 2N3D and saw elephants, crocodiles, many monkeys and birds. The river is calm and the weather was great. I strongly recommend this visit.
