Borneo Rainforest Lodge
Why we like it
- Rustic lodge located within the rainforest jungle
- One of the best places for viewing Borneo's wildlife
- Choose to stay in River View Deluxe Chalets, Jungle View Deluxe Chalets and Jungle View Standard Chalets
- Enjoy jungle walks along canopy walkways and night time safaris
For families of four, we recommend the Jungle View Deluxe Chalet with multiple beds, outdoor tub and spacious veranda.
The service provided is excellent. It is the most enjoyable experience and most the memorable holidays, we have had, have been when we have travelled with A&K.

The Borneo Rainforest Lodge is a rustic lodge built beside the Danum River within the Danum Valley primary rainforest jungle. Renowned for its rich variety of both plants and wildlife, the rainforest's mammals include the Sumatran rhino and the clouded leopard. Bird life is equally extensive and varied with over 275 individual species having been recorded, giving Danum Valley a reputation for being one of the best places for viewing Borneo's wildlife. The lodge accommodates a maximum of 60 people, ensuring that each guest enjoys a unique and individual jungle experience. Each chalet has an en suite bathroom and hot shower, plus verandas overlooking the rainforest.
The central lodge is a large, airy building standing on columns of belian, Borneo's famous hardwood, and features a spacious veranda, dining area and well-stocked bar. Lodge activities include jungle walks, bird watching with resident nature guides, canopy walkways high above the jungle floor and night safaris.
