Where the wild things roam

Just back from Borneo. Was it a good trip - absolutely!

I saw lots of pygmy elephants, orangutans and proboscis monkeys while travelling upstream or on jungle hikes. My daughter and I stayed at many different places, though the Borneo Rainforest Lodge in Danum Valley was a knockout.

The food was just sensational, the accommodation in stand along chalets accessed from a boardwalk just lovely and the guides were all expert in their knowledge of the flora and fauna to be found there. Sadly the coral reef off the east coast is looking very sad - at least the part I visited and much of the prime growth rainforest was logged years ago, replaced by palm oil plantations. At least deep within the jungle, you can still find a lot of wildlife. I would recommend going there, to Kota Kinabalu in Sabah is the easiest city to access and from there head eastwards.

More next week once I have recovered! Thanks for reading my blog!
