Best Borneo Rainforest Lodges To Stay In

Many clients when planning their Borneo Tour want to build an itinerary around the best Borneo Rainforest Lodges; which because of their locations and reputation for good guides attract wildlife enthusiasts and photographers alike. One of the most famous Borneo Rainforest Lodges is called exactly that, the Borneo Rainforest Lodge, located in the beautiful and wildlife-rich Danum Valley. Wildlife Trails first visited this lodge back in 2003, when James had just finished a 3-month conservation project on a threatened reef close to Sandakan and was in a position to recce the lodge as part of a short Borneo Safari. As well as seeing his first Wild Orangutans and Proboscis Monkeys, he raved about the quality of the guides, and the enjoyment he had taking daily walks on the treetop canopy and observing the many beautiful endemic birds. So we would recommend strongly you visit Borneo Rainforest Lodge as part of your Borneo wildlife tour.


Kinabatangan Wetlands Resort

Probably the best quality and most well run Borneo Rainforest Lodge located on the banks of the famous Kinabatagan River, is Kinabatangan Wetlands Resort. A charming resort tucked in the wilderness of Lower Kinabatangan surrounding the pristine freshwater swamps and mangrove forest. A lot of the TV documentatries you will have seen about Borneo will feature some slightly sweaty celebrity cruising along this beautiful river, spotting both Orangutans and Probosis Monkeys, as they move through the forest; infact there are a total of 7 primate species than can be seen from the lodge. The main activity, not suprisingly, are early morning and afternoon river cruises, with some of the best guides in Borneo providing excellent interpretation of the resident wildlife – if you are very lucky, you may even see the shy Pygmy Elephants that are highly endangered; that would be the highlight of your Borneo Safari.


Tabin wildlife resort

A beautifully designed jungle resort protecting an ‘island’ of biodiversity; sadly surrounded by oil plantations which dominate many parts of Borneo now. This wildlife and ‘people sanctuary’ provides great wildlife viewing, and camera traps located close to the lodge have taken regular photos of the endangered Clouded Leopard. Of course, the forest is very dense and these cats are mainly nocturnal, so seeing one will require a huge amount of luck. However for the ultimate Borneo Safari includes a visit to Tabin within your itinerary and finish off in one of the best Borneo rainforest lodges.
