Abai Jungle Lodge,
Borneo, Borneo (Sabah)
Info : Abai Jungle Lodge
This region has excellent wildlife and is a brilliant place to spot many endemic and endangered species in their natural setting. Abai Jungle Lodge is only accessible by boat and is just over an hour along the Kinabatangan River from either Sandakan or Sukau village.
The riverside location, boat safaris on the river, and the extensive boardwalks reaching into the jungle interior make this an easy place to explore. So, its a great location for wildlife enthusiasts, or even those who want to immerse themselves in the wilds of Borneo in a short space of time.
The accommodation here is simple, with 24 basic but large and clean wooden chalets built on stilts along the river. Rooms have mosquito nets and fans. Abai Jungle Lodge has an open air restaurant where tasty meals can be enjoyed aside the jungle boardwalks, there is also a lovely sundeck built beside the river.
Although simple, this is an excellent spot for experiencing the tranquillity and wilderness of the lower Kinabatangan, and is a unique place that is well worth a visit. The orangutan, bearded pig, owl and troop of macaques that frequent the lodge grounds are sure to make your stay here special.
Eco/Adventure - This category covers gorgeous lodges in the jungle, comfortable safari camps and dreamy, but simple, beach cabanas. These places defy conventional categorisation: what is communing with nature to one person may be terrifying bugs to another! Many of these places are very comfortable and the service generally of a very high level - but please read the website review carefully and/or talk to us and be sure to have understood what you are letting yourselves in for!

ETG's Matt was always accessible (even though we are based in Hong Kong) and efficient in replying. Will be happy to recommend and use him again! Our guide Bryant in Abai was a real gem. He was very polite, incredibly well spoken, informative, intelligent and gentle. He foresaw our needs, such as ordering chips for the children's lunch, and went out of his way to make things comfortable for us. He was a pleasure to spend time with.
