Our IntrepidTours Guest-house - in the Temburong district of Brunei - provides a comfortable and convenient base to explore the area by bicycle, longboat, raft and river-boat. 

With a variety of room configurations, air-conditioning and friendly local staff, our Guest-house provides economical accommodation for couples, families, backpackers, schools and special interest groups visiting Brunei.

The outdoor covered area is used for meals, evening discussions and to prepare for nearby activities and tours. Part of  Temburong's uniquely protected rainforest is behind the guest-house.

Our Guest-house is the base for our numerous tours in the Temburong area. These include our tours in Ulu Temburong National Park - with white water rafting and hiking options - our evening River Safari (see Proboscis Monkeys, Macaques, crocodiles, fireflies and more), and our Temburong Lifetyle programmes which visit longhouses, markets, farms etc.

One of the bunkrooms. Bathrooms are adjacent.

Strategically located about ten minutes drive from Bangar town, our Guest-house is on the route to Batang Duri, where our longboats begin the journey to Ulu Temburong National Park. It is also just 10 minutes drive from the  landing  where our boats take visitors for our evening River Wildlife Safari tours.

Our specially equipped aluminium boat is used to explore the river mangroves. In the evening  guests see a variety of wildlife along the mangrove lined shore, including Borneo's unique Proboscis Monkeys. After dark we see fireflies, bats and the red eyes of salt water crocodiles enjoying the last of the sun-warmed surface water.
