Property description

One of the most existing places in South East Asia to watch wildlife and its not in the zoo!

Nature Lodge Kinabatangan (NLK) is located within Kampung Bilit, a village along Kinabatangan river and takes its name from the white trunked-kabilit trees found in the nearby forest. We are easily accessible by car, and this village consists of only 150-180 people from about 30 households.

These villagers are mainly Orang Sugei (literally means River People) who make the living from fishing and making of crafts work such as fishnets and boat. They will later sell their crafts to the nearby villages.

The basic accommodation of NLK is built within the Kampung's lush green forest and it promises an unforgettable stay filled with adventure.

You will be able to spot primates such as the ever-energetic long tail and pigtail macaques, the amazing sounding gibbons, the elusive tarsier, lazy slow loris and human liked orang utans. The main attraction is the proboscis monkeys; with its long nose and big belly, this primate is only found on the island of Borneo.

You will also be able to experience close encounters with a subspecies of the Asian elephant, the Borneo Pygmy elephant. These elephants are smaller in sizes, have rather large ears and longer tails than its Asian counterpart.

While trekking to the near by Oxbow lake, Danau Bilit, you will continue to be amazed by the sighting of crocodiles basking along the muddy river banks, bearded pigs sniffing away for food, deer, wild cats such as the civets and clouded leopard and the workaholic otters. Our trained guide will also be able to show you a variety of insects and many species of colorful birds such as the Stork-billed kingfisher, the Oriental Pied Hornbill, the Crested Goshawk and many more

So, wait no longer, come join us to explore the Kinabatangan! The price listed on this site is for the following (pls note that the prices listed are for 2 nights/ 3 days package only, any extension of stay thereafter is only at RM106.00per person for dorm & RM200.00 for Deluxe Agamid chalet. Price including meals and you can still join any activity in the schedule. And you will need to pay the extra night stay at the lodge and only on cash basis since the c/c machine does not work there! And the one night rate is at RM413.40 per person for Dorm and RM483.90 per person for Chalet and not half of the listed price):
