"The best nature and wildlife experience" Very much alive with trees and wildlife. Its a must for nature lover and those seeking solace and sanctuary away from the busy and hectic city life. Staffs are very professional, our sales person Jane is easily contacted and very helpful during our trip.
"3D2N visit via Borneo Dream bookings" Comfortable jungle amenities, well organised logistics, experienced punctual guide (thanks Mohamed!). Stayed in AC chalet, good food, gum boots provided for small fee for walks. Must bring - strong insect repellent and binoculars. Very lucky on river cruise to see heaps of proboscis monkeys, hornbills of all kinds, macaques, sea eagle, langurs and one huge croc (on last day thankfully, otherwise we’d be full of nerves). Walks - civet cat, frogs, owl, kingfisher, fly catcher.
"Brilliant Experience" A fantastic experience and a great place to base yourself while exploring the Kinabatangan River. I did 3D2N. The hotel is nestled in nature, the rooms are clean, the toilets are clean and the food that is served buffet style in the restaurant is fantastic. The guides were knowledgeable and happy to help in every way. I highly recommend staying here.

"Kinabatangan River Cruise" Such an amazing place. I had Mohammed as my guide and he is such a great guide, he knew loads about the wildlife and the jungle, as well as being able to spot everything! July, front of house, was so kind and helped me book my bud onwards. Great food and value for money!
"A once in a lifetime experience - thank you Mohammed!" We booked through Borneo Dream and had the most wonderful experience. Our guide Mohammed was fantastic - his ability to spot animals from hundreds of metres away was so impressive and his enthusiasm for his job made the experience even better. Thanks to Mohammed, we managed to see the Borneo Big 5 - pygmy elephants, proboscis monkey, crocodile, orangutan and rhinoceros hornbill. It was an experience I will never forget. Our accommodation at the lodge was comfortable and spacious. The meals were good and there is drinking water available to refill water bottles.
"River Safari" The guides were so knowledgeable about all the wildlife and pointed so many things out we wouldn’t have noticed. The receptionist was incredibly kind and friendly and the food was really good and had lots of options
