Awesome experience

"I would definately recommend this place over the larger lodges. Only four guestrooms, so you will get a more personal experience than in a crowded river boat. Gert and his team will make you feel welcome from the first minute. The rooms were clean and comfortable and food was great. Thanks to our ..."…"

Great budget option, wildlife without frills

"Great budget option. We saw lots of wildlife, including wild orangutans, from the river, though very little on the night tour (some milipedes and one bird). We were in a cabin - bedroom was fine, bathroom a bit tired. Dorm rooms looked reasonable, but if it rains there is nowhere to dry clothes, ..."…"

Nice 3D2n Experience

"Fantastic guides. Very knowledgeable and good at spotting wildlife. Aswad (one of the guides) is very personable and helpful. The river cruises were nice, but the jungle trek behind the property weren't as fruitful as I'd hoped. Food was good and never lacking for portion size."…"

"buon camp nella giugla.. spartano ma il cibo casareccio e il personale stupendo fanno dimenticare la camera certo non eccezionale. Inoltre le piccole barche sono più idonee per avvicinarsi agli animali, e il nostro "capitano" aveva occhi di falco e ci ha consetito di vedere tantissimi animali."…"

Possibly one of the better places in Sukau

"Reasonable room. Air con worked. Was clean enough, but the sink was blocked on arrival. It's an old place and showing it's age. Quite expensive for what you get, but better value I think than other places in Sukau."…"
