The biggest highlight in Sabah for most of our guests is a visit to Sukau Rainforest Lodge, recognised by National Geographic as a Unique Lodge of the World and winner of Sabah's Best Nature Lodge in addition to numerous other international awards. It is here that you will get to experience and if you're lucky, come face to face with Sabah's endangered wildlife such as the Orang Utan and the Borneo Pygmy elephant in the wild. Indulge yourself by staying three nights here and you'll be glad you did. Sukau is by far the easiest place to view animals in the wild and is a must visit for wildlife enthusiasts, nature lovers and families alike.
For nature lovers, our personal recommendations are tours to Selingan Island, Danum Valley and Tabin Wildlife Sanctuary. Hardy adventure travellers would also love our custom designed treks to Maliau Basin and the Crocker Range.

As for the adventurers, climbing Mount Kinabalu is a must do activity in Sabah.

I just wanted to say a huge thanks to you for looking after me so well last weekend. We both had an amazing time. My wife will do a proper TripAdvisor review when we have time. But on a personal level I wanted to show my gratitude. The food was amazing and it made me so happy to enjoy foods I don't normally get to. The restaurant staff were all amazing.
Joy went above beyond what we are expecting. She wanted us to have the best experience as possible - and we did. She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and nothing was too much trouble. Thank You !...

Sorry for the delayed response-- we have been traveling in Southeast Asia with limited email access. Zack and I would like to properly thank you and Hamit for an amazing trip to Danum Valley! We had such a wonderful time in the rainforest, and it certainly is one of my favorite and most treasured memories from this trip. Thank you again for arranging everything and making it happen.
I hope that our paths will cross again in the near future, and hope that we make it back to Bor ..
We made the trip :-)
Thank you again for helping us out. We are definitely coming back and want to spend more time with your company, and will be recommending it to our friends.
Please also pass on our thanks to Bingo for being so empathetic on Monday after missing our flight...
Thanks so much for everything. We had an absolutely fantastic trip with Borneo Ecotours. Your logistics were excellent as were the drivers, guides, lodges, etc. I wrote a review on Trip Advisor...
