good travelagency or guide in sabah

I want to stay in Sarawak (Kuching) and Sabah for 3 weeks in April / May.I am looking for a good travelagency or guide, who has good knowledge of wildlife and plants.

Can anybody recommend a travelagency? Has anybody experience with Diethelm Travel or borneoecotours?

We want to stay in Kuching, Mt. Kinabalu, Sepilok Nature Resort,

sukau (Kinabatangan) , Danum Valley and Tabin.

We dont know, where to stay in Sukau - T omanggong-riverview - lodge or Sukau Rainforest Lodge ? Can anybody give me a review

or recommendation?

Thank you

Devon, England

We travelled to Sabah last November. It was absolutely fantastic. We stayed in Tabin, Danum, at the Sepilok Nature Resort and the Proboscis Lodge on the Sukau River. We also hiked up Mt Kinabalu and stayed at one of the guest houses on the mountain. I can recommend Amy at Intratravel.


We used the travel agent for a 2 day trip to Mt Kinabalu (including private transfers from Kota Kinabalu, private mountain guide, food and bed) and for the trip to Tabin. The other places we booked directly ourselves. One tip for Sukau: don't travel by road twice if you can avoid it! The road is still in the process of being built and it takes a good 2.5 hours!!! Much better to take a boat transfer back to Sandakan. The very helpful manager at the Proboscis lodge in Sukau organised it for us! The flights we organised online with air asia http://www.airasia.com/site/en/home.jsp. Flights were cheap but beware that sometimes the flights are cancelled if occupancy is low! They were good enough to track us down in Danum to inform us of our flight change which was incredible!

The Sepilok Nature Resort is beautiful and the food is really nice. Tabin and Danum were both awesome. Both totally different but equally impressive. Saw huge herd of elephants in Tabin which was amazing! Sukau should not be missed! Re Mt Kinabalu; we left it for last so we could rest our aching legs on the flight home! We loved Sabah and would love to return again one day!
