Accommodation - Borneo

Set on the banks of the river next to the native longhouse, Nanga Sumpa Longhouse is a basic traditional wooden lodge that provides simple, clean lodgings, with mats, mosquito nets and mattresses. The 17 rooms can sleep two or four people, and the shared bathrooms include western style toilets. There is no hot water, so only cold showers are avialable. Also, there is no regular electricity, so lighting is provided by oil lamps. Local meals of fresh jungle vegetables prepared by the lodge kitchen are eaten in a communal dining area. This is a living example of an Iban Community, who have successfully embraced a form of respectful, low-volume tourism where they are able to blend their traditional way of life with the benefits of contemporary living that comes with this form of sustainable eco-tourism. It has proved to be economically beneficial to all of the local community as the income is split equally between the twenty-three families.

Nanga Sumpa Jungle Camp
A true jungle experience, this most basic of camps lies close to the river, offering a simple single room that is raised up on a wooden platform. There is a single western style toilet located outside and bathing is done in the nearby river. All meals are cooked on an open fire.

If climbing Mount Kinabalu the second night's accommodation is a shared dorm, so take some ear plugs.
