We joined Borneo Eco Tours for a 3 night trip to Sandakan and Sakau. This was a wonderful trip and our guide, Rahman, took such good care of us. During this 4 days he became our friend. A wonderful company with staff like no other.

Had a 3D2N in Sukau Lodge and enjoyed every minute of the stay. Staff and local guides are extremely helpful and informative about the rain forest Eco-system. You should definitely join the evening cruise as the wildlife will be more approachable. Local guides show us wild orang utan, Proboscis, Macaque, lot of different species of birds, namely Horn bills, kingfisher, etc. Accommodation is top class. Would definitely recommend it to friends.
