Okay place with room for improvements

I’ve visited Kinabatangan river before and also seen multiple rainforests in my life, so I’m comparing my experience to my earlier experiences. THE GOOD: The chalet was big enough for two persons, there was a good shower with warm water. A decent hair dryer was a nice bonus. We liked the food they offered - all lunches and dinners had chicken and fish option. Of course the main star of the visit is the river and the nature around it. We took the two nights package and on every river cruise we saw a ton of monkeys, including rare proboscis monkeys. We also saw a big male orangutan, baby crocodile, hornbills and other birds. Sadly, no elephants this time. Our guide took us to different places of the river and was good at spotting things. He also stopped every time passengers saw something and seemed to know quite a lot about the nature. He was also friendly and funny. The giggling lady in the reception was friendly too and always ready to answer questions. We also liked that the package contains pickups and drop-offs and almost everything you need so it is very hassle-free to do the trip. In general, Kinabatangan river is great place to see wildlife. Often, animals can be a bit too far for mobile phone cameras, but they are close enough so that you don’t need a huge lens to get great photos. The itinerary is quite packed, but every activity is optional so you can adjust it to fit for yourself. Some tips: make sure you have bug spray with you or an army of mosquitos will eat you alive. Also, make sure to bring long socks, pants and shirt. Tuck the pants into the socks if you don’t fancy donating blood to leeches. They do have leech socks available, but the staff told us that they are quite expensive and not really needed. THE BAD: All that being said, the place could improve some things. When we arrived, it didn’t feel very welcoming experience. It felt more like being a part of herded cattle. Immediately they explained the itinerary and after that send us away to find our own chalets. Next, there was afternoon tea but when we went to the restaurant, no one was there. That was often the theme on the lunches and dinners. Customers had to handle everything themselves and staff was nowhere to be seen. Once that lead to a situation where everyone else went to breakfast early and when we arrived on time, some of the food was already finished. A little bit of human touch and service could do wonders. Like other have mentioned, the chalets are a bit dirty and rundown. We were not expecting a high end room, but having spider webs everywhere and sand on the floor was a bit of a disappointment. Furniture could benefit from a little maintenance. The beds did not have mattress pads so we could feel the springs in the mattress. We slept well, but having mattress pads would be a great improvement. For some reason rubber boots are no included in the price which is weird, because they are a must-have because of the mud. Apparently cleaning of the boots is done by the customers and it shows. Our boots were extremely dirty and one of the boots was wet inside. On river cruises the biggest annoyance came from the combustion engines. They are loud and every time we stopped, we had to smell the fumes from all the boats around us and that gave us a headache. Naturally, animals close to the boats receive the same treatment. When we saw the big orangutan building his nest for the night, there were multiple boats surrounding it and getting very close. The animal we clearly in stress and made noises and gestures, trying to make us leave him alone. It was just sad to watch. Many tourists realised this and said out loud that this is not good and we should leave, but guides just stayed there. This is unacceptable. Nature and animals should be the first priority and excitement of tourists should come after that. To be clear, this wasn’t just our boat. It was every boat. It is somewhat sad to realise that one of the reasons you can see so many animals in Kinabatangan river is that animals are being cornered by palm oil plantations. Of course, this is not the fault of the lodge, but just something that is good to realise when you visit the place.

Booked the 3D/2N package through River Junkie in late November. We went when the river was high, which drastically reduced our chances to see pgymy elephants and crocodiles, but we did get to see many species of monkeys, birds, and even a few orangutans! Rooms: We booked a private cabin and for a two star hotel, it was adequate. The bed was comfortable, they provided a towel, the AC worked well, and the shower was hot. My major complaint was that the cabin felt dirty: dusty throughout and particularly noticeable under the bed and the toilet seat was not cleaned. The furniture was also a bit rundown. Service: The staff were friendly, including our guide: Mohammed. He seemed knowledgeable about the area and allowed us to use his binoculars on the boat. As part of the package, you go on a couple of night walks and a jungle trek. You can "rent" boots and a flashlight from the lodge (RM 10/ each, cash), but I think they should be included in the package because there's no way you could do either of these activities without them. For our first day, our group had 7 people, which was a perfect number. Easy to hear the guide on the boat, a little tougher on the night walk if you're in the back. The second day when the next group arrived, they got added to our group, which made for 12. I believe the max number of people is 14, but even 12 was a lot. If you're at the front of the boat, it's hard to hear the guide in the back and on the jungle trek/night walk, if you're in the back, you're hooped- you can't hear what the guide is saying. While I'm glad we had this experience, I wouldn't do it again. Perhaps if I was a wildlife photographer, I would. But you're so far away from the wildlife that a camera phone isn't going to do the trick. Lastly, there's no wifi in the rooms. But if you have a data plan, you should be able to connect (at least with Celcom).


Another must-do activity when in north Borneo.

I booked with Nature Lodge because they offer a 2 day 1 night tour from Sandakan to Kinabatangan River. Pick up is in Sandakan or Sepilok, and lunch is at your own expense at Mango Garden where the food was nice but the service incredibly slow (our meal was only just served by the time we needed to be back on the bus). Dinner and breakfast are included. The tour included transfers to the lodge on the river, an afternoon cruise, a night jungle walk, and an early morning cruise, and back to Sandakan. The accommodation was okay, with excellent air conditioning. Our boat guide was fantastic, and we saw a lot of wildlife. 2 days and 1 night is plenty. Highly recommended.


Perfect Trip

We booked our trip with River Junkies, and ended up at the Kinabatangan Nature Lodge. The chalets are good with plenty of room and AC. The camp is cozy and everybody is very friendly. The food was good too. We took the 3D2N option with several Jungle treks and river cruises. And it was amazing! Thanks to the best guide you can have, Mr Eagle Eye Mohammed, we saw all the animals we hoped to see. Proboscis monkeys, Stork-billed Kingfishers, Pig-tailed, long tailed and short tailed macaques, crocodiles, Oriental Pied Hornbill, Orangutan and even the legendary Borneo-pygmee elephant. We had rainy days, sunny days and fogs, but in all conditions there is plenty of wildlife to see! Special thanks to you again Mohammed, your knowledge, optimism, jokes and binocular eyes made sure with had a once in a lifetime trip!


Great value- Very skilled guides

Guides are very impressive. Most if not all grew up on the river and know the area intimately. Their ability to spot wildlife is second to none. We were fortunate to have both Omar and Mohammed as guides for our river cruises, and night walks. Their knowledge is remarkable. They were also generous to share about their owns lives so we could learn more about local culture. Food is good- dorms are A/C which is wonderful. Saw lots of wildlife! Very reasonable price- highly recommend.
