We stayed here for 3 days / 2 nights and I really wish we had stayed longer. We were on a wildlife tour of Malaysia and coming here was just amazing. Travelling down the river in the early morning and late evenings are memories that will live with me forever. We were lucky and saw an outstanding amount of wildlife - organgutang, probiscus monkey, crocodile, raptors x lots, birds innumerable. As some people have said the accomodation is a bit basic, but its perfectly fine. The point of coming to a place like this is not to sit in your cabin but get out there into an environment you just don't get at home. Food good, guides friendly and knowledgeable. I would go again if I where ever in this part of the world again.
