What a great little camp! I loved this place, with the jungle on the doorstep, amazing views of the Crocker range and cute and characterful accommodation. The staff here are great and organised a jungle trek for us as well as showing us how to use traditional traps and blowpipes. The food is really good and the rooms and tents... More

The noise of the insects and animals is almost deafening at dusk and pleasantly comforting through out the night. Simple accommodation and food which is no less than you would expect or want visiting a pristine part of the Borneo Jungle. Inus who runs the Jungle camp is a generous man who is more than happy to pass on his... More

Experienced and knowledgeable guides, well priced, and you help out the local community! It's also great because Inus is flexible with dates etc., so don't worry if you decide to stay longer. You can pretty much do whatever you want, just ask! Great!

My girlfriend and me had a great time at Utan Paradise Jungle Camp, thanks to Inus! Very cozy camp place, away from the road, So quiet we only heard the sounds of the jungle. The jungle itself is wonderful with a barely marked trek, animals, rivers and waterfalls, all known by Inus, who have been trekking here almost daily for... More

I can highly recommend Utan Paradise as a place to stay. Not only is it a short trip from KK it is situated on the edge of the Crocker Range NP. If your up for it you can disembark on treks into the forest from 1 night to 2 week long trips. Otherwise just relax around base camp enjoying the... More
