Trekkers Lodge Kinabatangan
Reviewed May 21, 2007

We stayed at the Nature Lodge on the 3 day, 2 night package. It was fantastic and an unforgettable experiance!! You have to get to Medan Selera about an hour from Sandakan and then get picked up by Nature Lodge to go by bus to the Kinabatangan (about 2 hours). We had a chalet with private bathroom. The rooms were basic but clean, unfortunately the generator had broken while we were there so we had no electric. But the staff we very helpful and gave us oil lamps in the evening. It was part of the fun of the place. The home cooked food was also delicious.

The trip had night jungle walks, river boat trips and day jungle walks. We saw some amazing wildlife, elephants, crocdile, loads of different monkeys, all kinds of birds. Our guide was brilliant and could find wildlife everywhere.

If you are going to this area I would definately recommend going to the Kinabatangan, I would love to go back.

We were not planning on doing a river safari on the Kinabatangan but were so glad we did. We bumped Poring, and have no regrets. The staff and accommodation at this new place on the Kinabatangan should be enjoyed by more people.Thankyou Lem and Louis and the girls in camp! As they only opened for business there in September last year, their reputation is growing by word of mouth as they will not appear in lonely Planet etc for a while yet.
Due to this you will not be surrounded by scores of tourists, (like I believe is the case at Uncle Tans) we were 4 of 7 there at the time. So lots of attention and quiet, and time to get to know the locals who work there. The guides were friendly and warm and knowledgeable. The wildlife was great.
The accommodation is new and clean, well built. The toilet/shower block is great. From speaking to others much better equipped than Uncle Tan on this count. The cost was RM290 for the 3D/2N trip which includes transfers from Bukit Garam by the wonderful Lee and Jun.
Saw lots of wildlife and enjoyed swimming in the oxbow lake with Lem and all the little fishies. Go there soon, before they get too well known, and you have to share this wonderful place with too many people from the world outside.
