Early Morning at Lookout Point
Early Morning at Lookout Point
This is one of Borneo’s most sought-after packages. The multiple award winning Borneo Rainforest Lodge is a facility set in the middle of million-year old rainforest. The serene setting is perfect against a river which runs right through it and is often visited by passing sambar deers and herds of bearded pigs. The whooping calls of Borneon Gibbons serenade the early morning with songs that are hauntingly Borneo by signature.

Opportunities abound with trails and guided tours, complemented by some of the best services offered anywhere.
