River trip

by pmitch56 Online Now Feb 3, 2009 at 6:22 AM

Hoping to go on a river wildlife trip. We will be staying initially in Sandakan and would like some idea of the options open to us.
Are all the trips inclusive of a jungle lodge type overnighter or is it possibe to do a day trip from Sandakan? Are the overnighters worth it? They all seem to be rather pricy from what I can discover on the internet.
Can anyone recommend a good agent in Sandakan for a couple travelling on a budget?
Thanks

    I understand that there are some B+B's available in the Kampung.
    Has anyone stayed at these?
    Any recommendations?

    We are just back from Sabah, also making a Kinabatangan cruise. If you can afford, I would definitely suggest you staying overnight - the Sandakan - Sukau drive is just to long, while the best cruises are made in late evening when the animals are around the river.

    We organised our trip with www.sabahholidays.com (INNO travel), reliable and helpful though I am not fully sure will fit "budget". They are also open to fulfill individual request or change trips (eg. we stayed an extra day in the riverside lodge).

    cheers,
    Glober
