Welcome friends. At the Tip of Borneo lies an Eco resort and jungle camp called Tampat Do Aman. In the local Rungus language this means "a place of friends".We are located by the only road that leads to this phenomenally beautiful coastline that stretches from the Tip of Borneo 10km to the south, incorporating eight of the best beaches Sabah has to offer. The area really is a jewel in the crown of Sabah. In Tampat Do Aman Tip of Borneo you will find : A Jungle camp (Traditional Rungus long House), A beach front restaurant and Bar (“Tip Top”) and an activities center. If you are a nature lover like us then there is lots to do here in Tip of Borneo. Our activities center offers bicycles and snorkeling gear for rent. There are different trekking and night tours happening and you can even take a course in Jungle Survival.

My girlfriend and I stayed for a couple of nights in a double room in the long house. It is in the jungle with the creepy crawlies and as you can see in the pictures, it is basic. However, it is incredibly charming. Howard and his staff are super friendly and they are clearly

Claire, A very good morning to you and all good , I see that some people have tried to answer your questions but think ey might be a bit confusing . With regards to getting to us the best would be to contact us direct via our web site and I can send you directions on how to make your way to us ( there is no Uber in Kudat ) . Our place is a 25 minute walk to the beach but we do a shuttle service 5 times a day so you do not miss out on anything , the idea is that you get the best of both worlds , the jungle and the beach . With regards to water sports , we hire out surf boards and snorkel gear and can help point you in the right direction if you wished to go diving . If you send us an E mail via our web site, Just use our place name , tampatdoaman And Google and I can send you directions to our place and we can go from there. This site does not let me put e mail address' on or web site links With best wishes, Howard
