Lonely Planet review
If you're looking for Brunei's version of a jungle camp with basic amenities and a chilled-out atmosphere that encourages slipping into a green state of utterly relaxed Zen, come to Sumbiling. This ecofriendly rustic camp offers great Iban cuisine (served on simpur leaves) and plenty of outdoor activities, including visits to nearby Ulu Temburong National Park, jungle overnights, inner-tubing and a forest trek. The basic rooms have glassless windows and a fan attached to the ceiling to make sure air circulates inside the mozzie nets (nice touch). Also has a rain-protected camping area, organic composting and importantly, no handouts of single-use plastic bottes. Nearby is a five-door Iban longhouse with fierce, beautiful fighting cocks – each family's prized possessions – tethered outside. Prices do not include transport. Run by Borneo Guide in cooperation with the local community. Situated a few minutes downstream from Batang Duri.
