At Sukau rainforest Lodge (reviewed separately) we saw Pygmy Elephants, Sun Bears, Orangutans, Proboscis Monkeys, and one river Crocodile. The tour package we took included the Sea Turtle hatchery at the one of the sanctuary islands (Pulau Selingan). Snorkeling there was ok but not great... Also saw several giant Monitor Lizards on Selingan! For the whole tour, our guide Nextor was very well informed and funny
A superb trip from start to finish. Everything was extremely well organised and professional. Just loved it. Sukau Lodge is a truly special place and I would return again in a heartbeat!
I took one-day tour to Mt. KINABALU.
I think this place is must to go, in the nice air in the forest, can see many kinds of plant, flowers and birds. I luckily saw Rafflesia there.?
My guide Osman is experienced and knowledgeable, so it was really wonderful to hear his knowledge about the nature, I could not have such a nice experience without him.
My boyfriend and I went on the 3day/2nights jungle tour and stayed at Sukau Rainforest Lodge and it was absolutely perfect! Everything was organized in the best possible way so we just had to sit back and enjoy! We were picked up at Sandakan airport in the morning, went to the orang utan Sepilok sanctuary where we had a bit of downtime before they opened and then went around the sanctuary with our great guide Fernando. Afterwards he took us to the sun bear conservatory and after lunch his colleague Hamit took over and we went by speed boat to the lodge. The journey took us about an hour because we stopped a lot of times to watch the wildlife. We saw the big five already all on our way to the lodge! Absolutely breathtaking! The speed boat ride was easy and comfortable! The lodge itself is absolutely wonderful! The rooms are spacious, everything's clean, there's a dip pool and the staff is wonderful! We had three more cruises and on each we saw a lot of monkeys, different birds, orang utans again (!), I was amazed what and where Hamit spotted all the animals! On the way back we saw crocodiles again and after lunch in Sandakan we were dropped off at the airport to catch our flight.
The communication prior to the tour was friendly and fast. Honestly, if you're interested in Borneo and its wildlife, go with BET.
I worked with Kyra in customer service to put together a custom 8-day package to Sabah that included Kota Kinabalu, Gaya Island, Borneo Rainforest Lodge in Danum Valley, the Kinabatangan River, and the Orangutan sanctuary. Kyra was prompt and courteous and the price was among the most reasonable of the several quotes I got. The actual trip was flawless and was exactly what was advertised, no surprise fees or anything like that. The complicated arrangement of pickups and transfers were always on time and in comfortable vehicles. The tourguides were knowledgeable and spoke good English. Great job!
Can not say enough good things about this tour operator. I was picked up at the airport in Sandakan first thing in the morning along with a few other tourists. We proceeded to our first part of the tour with detailed information being given at all times. Eventually the rest of the group went on to an overnight stay after which I was given my own private guide to take me the rest of the way. We discussed my late return flight to KK, and decided on a personalized afternoon of touring. Needless to say the guide/driver was tipped very well. Excellent service from a friendly and professional group!
