These are not luxury accommodations; you are on a very small island 2 hours from the mainland. There was decent air conditioning and hot water but I found the towels linens to be not as clean...

We had Gerald (Elod) as our guide and we couldn't have asked for more. He had great knowledge and was very kind. We went to see the orangutan, sun bears and city tour. It was great to see so many orangutan's in their natural habitat. I would defiantly recommend this tour company

I found this agency's office just walking around Sandakan downtown. Stepped in and ended with 3 days tour to Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Center, Sun Bear Conservation Centre, Kabili Rainforest Discovery Centre, Gomantong Cave and Bilit Adventure Lodge at Kinabatang River. I was glad I did it. All people in that office were really friendly and professional suggesting different trips... More
