Abai Jungle Lodge is set up river from Sakau and from the rest of the tourists. We debated whether we wanted to stay here or two nights in Sakau. We ended up doing both (1 night at Abai and 1 night at Kinabatan River Lodge) and set it up to be transported by boat. Abai lodge was amazing and Rose the wild orangutan came every day to the trees by the lodge. She was adorable and was incredible to watch as she went from tree to tree to eat. This place is quiet and the guides were excellent. I think we saw the entire population of probiscus monkey's and every animal along the river. We went on a night safari by boat and walked along the property's boardwalks at night to see frogs and sleeping birds. This lodge can only be reached by boat and has many more chances or seeing wild orangutans. The rooms are basic and the food is basic too but I would have stayed longer if we would have known how amazing this place was going to be. I highly recommend staying here.
