We have just got back from a 4 day/3 night tour with STWA. Everything went like clock-work from the moment we were picked up at the airport to our sad departure. The accommodation at Bilit Adventur Lodge was more than we were expecting for ‘jungle’ lodgings and the food both tasty and plentiful.
The rooms are well air-conditioned, clean & mozzi free with hot water on tap. The grounds are well kept, keeping the jungle feel (including the local troupe of monkeys who come to visit Bilit lodge in the evening).
Food here was more variable that at Sepilok Jungle Resort, being buffet style rather than choices from a menu. You do need to pay for ALL drinks, so make sure you take RMs with you. Prices were very reasonable for sprite, coke etc.
The people really bring this place to life! Our boat pilot led the river cruises with such enthusiasm (‘crickey!’ he would shout as another magical animal moment revealed itself). The wildlife we saw outstripped any expectations, ranging from wild orangutans to a herd for 10 pygmy elephants. Our guide even arranged for us to cook and have dinner in a local’s house – great experience. The night walk is also worth a mention.
Bilit Adventure Lodge great base to explore the Kinabatagan River and the surrounding jungle.More
