We were in Borneo, Sabah in the rainy season & we booked our trip to Uncle Tans for 3 nights. It is certainly a special place, stating with the boat trip down the river Kinabatangan to the camp base. The rooms are super basic (but exactly as they had been described to us by the trip organisers) Just a simple structure with matresses and mozzie nets but no doors/windows so I would say its not for the faint hearted!
When we were there is rained & rained & rained which was all good we didn't mind but the camp flooded very badly & it got to a point where they were on high alert & were going to ask us all to hang out in the main communal area over night in case we needed to evacuate! It was actually super exciting, there were huge thunder storms & we all just sat around drinking beer, swapping travel stories & wondering if we were going to make it through the night!
The staff were amazing, so passionate & really good fun.
Unfortunately the wildlife was a little elusive because of the rain but it certainly didn't take away from this amazing experience. Absolutely loved it!
