Hi there, we just wanted to say a big thank you to all the staff at Borneo Trails for making our trip to Sabah really special. Our stay at the Borneo Nature Lodge was very enjoyable and the food was great. But our guide Jame made the whole thing worthwhile. His knowledge and expertise in spotting animals and birds was amazing, and his overall enthusiasm was fantastic (and infectious)...

Dear Dan, It has been a great pleasure visiting your lodge. After approx. 2,5 hours driving in a car, then 5 min. in a boat - we were welcomed by you all, especially the juice and a hot wet cloth. The lunch was served in a nice dining room with air condition - a very nice and tasty lunch according to Scandinavian customs'. On the whole lodge the atmosphere was very calm and nice, so we really got the feeling that we were in the middle of the rainforest...

Hi, we stayed in the Borneo nature lodge from 29th until 31st December 2013 and would like to let you know that we have had a great time. You took good care of us and made us feel 'at-home' in your lodge. The service was excellent and the staff very friendly. The food was also very very good. Enak sekali. We are sending you a picture of us on the evening that you decorated our table...

Bernadette, Sorry it has taken me this long, but at last I have done it! Thanks for your help in arranging the early trip home from Sandakan. It was a shame we missed the Island, as we both were looking forward to laying back and relaxing but the rest of the trip was really good. Phillip was a real help and knew about every question we had! He helped make the Kota Kinabalu section of the trip really enjoyable...

Good morning Esther. Thank you so much for organising our trip down to Sandakan. Everything worked so well and went very smooth. Having 2 days at Kundasung was needed. The Heritage Hotel was okay and it looks like it is going through a process of renovation. Their service was personal and lovely. We booked seats on a Tung Ma Express bus and was able to pick that up at the bottom of the hill...

I just wanted to send you an email to pass on my thanks for arranging our trip in Sabah last week. We had an amazing time at Sepilok, Sukau and Tabin, with the opportunity to see and experience a huge variety of wildlife. Our guides were fantastically knowledgeable in relation to the animals we saw and the habitats in which they live which made our experience all the more valuable...

Thank you so much for an amazing stay - you're really thought about all the little things that make somewhere feel welcoming - from cold towels and drinks on arrival to flip flops in the rooms! We loved the river cruise and wish we could stay longer.

Borneo Nature Lodge - Keeping it Green & Natural

Nestled along the riverbank of Kinabatangan River lies Borneo Nature Lodge - an eco-friendly resort, offering the comfort without compromising the green. A natural haven for the outdoor enthusiast, Borneo Nature Lodge is your ideal lodging as you explore the melting pot of wildlife found here in Sukau.

The lower Kinabatangan is one of Sabah's most splendid natural treasures and the area is teeming with many rare and endangered animals from the fascinating proboscis monkey, Orang Utan, the estuarine crocodile, and a spectacular assembly of birdlife and if you are lucky, you might even come across the Borneo Pygmy Elephant.

A river cruise is the best way to spot these 'local residents' - an adventure you won't soon forget! Conservation in the Kinabatangan floodplain also fulfills Malaysia's pledge as a signatory to the Ramsar Convention to promote the wise use of wetlands. Currently, the lower Kinabatangan wetlands represent the largest remaining forested floodplain in Malaysia.

The Kinabatangan River is also rich in history and culture. For centuries, the floodplain contributed to economic progress in which it is believed that the river was an important link between Chinese and Bornean traders which dates back to earliest recorded Chinese voyage to Borneo in 631 AD.
