Tucked away somewhere in the mighty Kinabatangan river, lies a hidden gem Malaysians rarely know about. Sukau Rainforest Lodge has made a name for itself as a wildlife destination preferred by travelers who'd like to be pampered by its serene surrounding. Now, to celebrate the #MalaysiaBaru, Sukau Rainforest Lodge extends its arm to welcome fellow nature-lover countrymen with incredibly affordable rates that can't be missed. Stay at Sukau Rainforest Lodge, a charter member of National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World and see many of Borneo's rare and endangered species including the Bornean pygmy elephant, orangutan and proboscis monkey. Over the years, the lodge has had the privilege of hosting many esteemed guests, including Sir David Attenborough, Tony Blair and the late Crown Prince Henrik of Denmark.

Day 1 : Sandakan - Sukau Rainforest Lodge
Drive your way up to Lepit jetty in Sukau (approximately 25 minutes after Gomantong Cave), then meet up with our boatman and transfer for 10 minutes boat ride to Sukau Rainforest Lodge. Cool down with a refreshing drink and cold towel upon arrival while our friendly manager helps you check-in. Take a few moments to savor afternoon tea before we head out into the wild on your first river safari in search of monkeys, birds, and other exotic wildlife.
Every boat is equipped with eco-friendly outboard engines (used along the main river where the current is strong) and electric motor (used during wildlife viewing in the small tributaries) in search of wildlife and birds. Take loads of photographs as the wildlife extravaganza puts on a show.
