About

About Abai Jungle Lodge

Built on stilts, the Lodge provides a rustic, rural setting, deep within the interior of Sabah. Perched on the Kinabatangan River, guests are immersed in their surroundings at all times, with an abundance of wildlife to be found right on your doorstep.

The lodge’s spacious wooden rooms are connected by boardwalks and are within an easy walk to the cosy communal restaurant, which serves locally-sourced food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Fantastic nature walks and bird watch towers surround the property, allowing you every opportunity to see the famed wildlife of Borneo.

Practical info

Practical info

Location

The lodge sits on the world famous Kinabatangan River, about an hour’s boat ride from Sandakan. From this position, you're in a prime location to explore the wildlife that Sabah has to offer and there's every chance that you'll see Borneo’s endemic proboscis monkeys, long-tailed macaques, orangutans, hornbills, crocodiles or even the elusive pygmy elephant.

How to get there

Only accessible by boat and a one hour boat journey from Sandakan along the Kinabatangan River.

When to go

The best period to visit Borneo is from March until July.

Important Information

It is recommended that you consult with your General Practitioner or Practice Nurse 6-8 weeks in advance of travel. They will assess your particular health risks before recommending vaccines and /or antimalarial tablets.

Children

Travelling with children

Abai Jungle Lodge has a family-friendly feel, and as all tours of the river are by boat, the excursions shouldn't be too long or taxing for young children. The nature trails around the lodge are only 500-800 metres long, so should be manageable for children. The lodge also provides rooms that can accommodate up to two adults and two children comfortably under one roof.
