Truly Kinabatangan Experience

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 18, 2016


I visited KJC in late 2014, on my first ever visit to Borneo - and inevitably had to rely on local expertise for a fulfilling experience. As a birder and nature enthusiast, glad that I picked Robert Chong's KJC. Robert knows the area and its impressive wildlife, like the back of his palms - and a few boat rides with him clocked up several bird rarities, including the almost mythical Bornean Ground Cuckoo, Oriental Bay Owl, Bornean Falconet, 7 species of Hornbills etc etc etc! Fantastic primate sightings, including of Orangutang and Proboscis monkey with relative ease.

The resort itself is set amidst a patch of woodland of tall trees, with simple, but comfortable accommodation in large rooms with attached bathrooms. The centre of action within the camp is the open style reception cum restaurant, where guests get to interact with each other over drinks or food, while potentially looking at wild pigs, water monitor lizards and the impressive birdlife within the resort itself. As a eggitarian, I was well looked after by the kitchen staff who went out of the way to feed me something special everyday (typically a combination of locally available greens, potatoes, eggs and rice).
