The Wildlife Camp Experience
The Camp is on a Native Land along the Kinabatangan, near the Lokan River, a tributary of the Kinabatangan. As with many plots of Native Land in the Kinabatangan, our site remains uncleared of its jungle. Our location is a remote and is located between the Forest Reserve and Wildlife Sanctuary. Wildlife is present in abundance.
If it is a Tropical Rain Forest you want to experience, then Uncle Tan’s Wildlife Camp is the place you want to visit.
We do however wish to remind visitors that set in such a natural environment facilities are not of a FIVE STAR Resort & SPA and are in fact Spartan in nature - but we do our best under "circumstances of wilderness" to make your visit enjoyable and comfortable. You will get plenty of attention, hospitality and wildlife to observe. And… you will have plenty of good food. Yes, we will feed you well!
Frequently Asked Question
Q: Are children allowed to go to the Camp?
A: We welcome children to visit our Camp
Q: Can I leave my extra bags/luggage at the Ops Base while I go to the Camp?
A: You can leave your extra luggage with us when you go to Camp. But do this only if you plan to return to our Ops Base/Sandakan after Camp. If you plan to head to the islands off Semporna or to Danum Valley, etc., it would be better to take everything with you as it would be more convenient to proceed directly to Lahad Datu and then on to your destination directly from the Bukit Garam Junction. Otherwise, you’ll have to return to our Ops Base just to pick up your things and go back the same route you just came from
Note: No valuables, cash, travel documents, etc should be left in the backpack/luggage kept with us for storage. We will NOT entertain any complain regarding loss/damage of valuables, cash, etc.
