Your itinerary

Day 1

Local Lunch

Your adventure begins with a pick up from either Sandakan or Lahad Datu. You will be transferred to the village of Batu Puteh where you will register at the KOPEL office and enjoy a local lunch by the river.

It’s a friendly, welcoming community and the guides are trained locals from the village. They have an amazing knowledge about the area and the river and are incredibly keen to share everything they know with their guests.

After Lunch your guide will take you to the camp site which is about a 10 minute boat ride. This is the only way to get there.

You will camp on elevated wooden camp platforms with comfortable mattresses and even your own wash room which is located underneath your platform.

Once you have settled in you will go for a short walk in the forest surrounding the camp site before embarking on a late afternoon cruise in search of local wildlife.

After dinner your guide will take you once more into the forest for a night walk.

Lantern insects

Wake up to the sounds of the jungle and walk around the campsite at your own leisure before breakfast . The jungle is full of life as the sun rises and you may see local wildlife as you prepare for a day in the forest.

After breakfast you will leave the camp site and go up river to Supu forest. This is a special place where you will enjoy some jungle trekking away from the beaten path. A packed lunch will be provided after returning from your first trek to the bat cave.

As you return to the camp site later in the afternoon, keep your eyes open for wildlife along the riverbanks of this amazing stretch of the Kinabatangan river.
