Absolutely brilliant. Our main goal was to see the Orangutans at the rehabilitation center and in the wild. We did this and so much more thanks to our amazing guide Zaimi. He knew his stuff and spotted all sorts of animals that I would have missed. I can't thank him enough and now consider him a friend. We were lucky as we traveled in low season so had him all to ourselves which was fantastic. He even made a hand written list of all the species we actually saw. So thoughtful. The people of Borneo are wonderfully welcoming, gracious and kind. If I had to pick out a highlight on the trip it would be one of our early morning pre-breakfast river cruises where we sat in our small boat and watched an Orangutan waking from a nest and having breakfast. Followed by seeing Proboscis, Macaques (long and short tailed) monkeys all leaping around and starting the day. Also saw lots of different colourful birds and a huge crocodile. Simply stunning and all we had hoped for. A holiday of a lifetime.
Communication and knowledge of the destination.
See trip review. First class.
Take a bottle or two of your favourite tipple. Plenty of insect repellent and you'll be fine. Good set of walking boots, binoculars, poncho, and a waterproof bag to keep your phone in if using this for taking pictures.
Seeing the abundance of wildlife in it's natural habitat.
