Traveller Tales: Jen and Brett do Borneo

A lovely email came through today from Jen about her recent trip to Borneo with her husband, Brett. Check out their trip report and some of the fabulous photos they took, below. You can see more about their trip here.

We had an amazing time, Bain was the best guide we could have hoped for. He was so experienced as to when and where we should go to the feeding stations and other activities. He was extremely informative, knew everything you could imagine regarding Orangutans and other animals and has also given us the most beautiful photos of the orangutans. Although the orangutans were the reason for going, we were privileged to watch a family of proboscis monkeys leap from the trees and swim across the river thanks to Bane’s sharp eyes. We were also privileged to see some of the most beautiful King Fisher birds.

Your tour was everything you promised, the food on the boat was spectacular, the boat staff were friendly and helpful.

The arrangement to eat and go out on the boat and sleep at Rimba was perfect for us, we would have also been happy to stay on the boat, but it was nice to have a hot shower, some privacy and to be able to spread our luggage out at the lodge. 

Can’t thank you enough for organising a most memorable tour and would be happy to recommend you to anyone thinking of a trip to Borneo.
