we stayed in chalets that are up from river that can involve over 60 steps! Next time id stay by river right in the resort . Accomodation very good and excellent guides. We found it very hard to know if this was the best reserve to visit in hope of seeing truly wild orangs,as we thought of Danum.No guide book or here clarifies which is best as they are different..Much subject to logging of biggest trees 20 yrs ago, but wild life a bit easier to see and the growing rapidly where anything chopped down.Taking jeeps early and late great fun-managed to spot one orang which was lucky. Otters fishing in pool on river by resort and lots of birds,ealges,hornbills,owls.On one side is oil palm plantations as far as eye can see,so this large jungle reserve very valuable.
We stayed overnight at Lipad mud volcano in a watch tower. Not really worth it and saw nothing except bearded pig.Its about 300m square and occasionally bubbles but its not at all an exploding type-very quiet!
