This was one of the coolest places I have ever been. It is located in one of the last remaining swathes of primary rain forest in Borneo, and hosts incredible biodiversity. Fly into Lahad Datu, and then take a pleasant two hour drive through dirt roads, and secondary forest regrowing after generations of logging into the heart of the forest which still seems very untouched.

The lodge is impressively luxurious especially given its remote location. It is built with a lot of open spaces for sunlight, and breezes and uses a lot of exposed hardwoods, and soft lighting. It is set right on the river, so as you eat, you can watch the river float by.

The food is excellent. It is served buffet style but they also have stations where you can have fresh satay, laksa, or sandwiches made. Besides this there is a huge variety of other gourmet options available like curried prawns, and braised duck.

The rooms are great. Spacious and relaxing, and they even have electricity and little balconies. The guides are superb. They love the forest, most grew-up in it, and have also studied it scientifically. They are great at finding animals and then quite knowledgeable about their habits. It is a pleasure to go walking with them.

Definitely go here if you can afford the time it takes to get here, and the luxury pricing. You have a chance to see wild orangutans and pygmy elephants, as well as the rest of very impressive biodiversity here. Definitely do a night walk, and also the canopy walk while you are there.

Borneo is such a spectacular part of the world, the problem is it's also so inaccessible. The most incredible bio-diversity can only be found in the middle of its thickly forested heart, and that's not an easy proposition.

That is where Borneo Rainforest Lodge comes in. This lodge is located around one hour flying time from Kota Kinabalu in Sabah, flying in to Lahad Datu airport. From there it is a 2-4 hour 4x4 journey through plantations, secondary forest and primary forest. It's a rudimentary dirt road with many wooden bridges to cross, that often collapse, but get fixed up again pretty quickly.

On arrival at the small stilted-lodge situated on the bend of a river I found it quite astounding that such a beautiful resort could be located in such a remote location. Even more startling is the 5 star service and the extremely comfortable private lodges that overlook the river…fancy a dip in your huge outdoor bath that is fed by the pristine river while gazing out over the jungle looking at gibbons? Well you can do that here.

The walks are amazing, as the Danum Valley is home to Sumatran Rhino, Benteng Elephant, Clouded Leopard, Bornean Gibbon, and Leaf Monkey. While you probably won’t see the Rhino or Leopard I did come across a male forest elephant, monkeys and gibbons, along with a plethora of leeches! However it is the native Orangutan which is the star attraction and tracking wild Orangutans in the jungle is such an amazing experience that I rate it as highly as meeting the other great ape, the Mountain Gorillas in Uganda. For me the bird life was a major attraction with over 275 individual species, and some incredible endemic species such as the Borneo Bristlehead.

I took my wife and son, who was 5 at the time, and while the going gets tough in the mud, the memories of pygmy elephants, huge snakes, fighting monkeys, blood-sucking leeches, noisy gibbons, massive centipedes and wild Orangutans will hopefully last a lifetime. I know the photos of us high above the ravines in rope swing-bridges straight out of a Tarzan movie will be remembered, mostly by his mother!

The guides are some of the best in the country and are very professional. The catering at the lodge is first class, beers are cold and there is a wine list.

Having been on many safaris in Africa I can rate this experience up there with the best wildlife adventures I’ve ever been on. It’s not cheap, but for this quality and remoteness it rarely is, but for the value in experiences and memories I think it is worth it.
