Can I drink tap water in Borneo?
The water in many lodges and hotels in Borneo is, in fact, safe to drink, but we don't believe it's worth taking the risk during your safari. Stick to bottled water throughout your trip; it is readily available and inexpensive. The last thing you want on that trip of a lifetime is an upset stomach, when it could have been easily avoided.

What is the accommodation like in Borneo?
A diverse array of accommodations awaits your Borneo safari, catering to a range of preferences, from rustic jungle lodges to luxurious beach resorts. For wildlife-focused experiences, our priority is optimal wildlife locations rather than exclusively luxury. The Borneo Rainforest Lodge in Danum Valley offers a unique jungle stay with opportunities for wildlife sightings from your chalet's veranda. Accommodations along the Kinabatangan River lean towards rustic charm, with Bilit being a preferred choice for a more immersive wildlife river safari. Kota Kinabalu provides upscale options, including 4 to 5-star hotels like Shangri-La, which offer pools, beaches, and dining. Notably, Rasa Ria features an orangutan rehabilitation center, introducing you to Borneo's iconic wildlife.
