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. The whole staff was very professional, smiley and kind during the whole stay. The apartments were nice and clean, and it was very nice to enter an ice cold room after spending a long day in the rainforest. It was a nice experience to wear the sarongs at every dinner - it brought in a good atmosphere for the Borneo tradition among us guests.
The main reason for staying at Borneo Nature Lodge was for us the Kinabatangan River Safaris. The professional guiding and sailing from your team was for us excellent, we were never feeling unsafe at any time at all even though we were very close to the wild animals (elephants and crocodile).
Especially we would like to point out our guide Jame Bin Marjan from Borneo Trails. He knowledge about nature, animals and history is huge - his interest for photographing was also excellent and inspiring, as due to his interest we came very close to the wild animals. I'm also a photographer and I know the true feeling of taking good pictures - and James pleasure of showing us his pictures while we were sailing.
For sure we will return and we will recommend your lodge to all our friends and relatives.
