Just wanted to say a BIG thanks for our trip with Borneo Adventures to Batang Ai and Nunga Sumpa (we did the 3 day/ 2 night tour) early in October 2013. Being Australian city dwellers and full-time office workers we were really hoping this trip would take us out of our comfort zone, challenge us physically and culturally, and give us a unique experience - it fulfilled ALL our expectations!! We have significant, wonderful and lasting memories of a brilliant trip and experience.
It is a "back to basics" trip that is physically challenging - we are fit 50 somethings! Lots of the "walking" is up and down steep inclines that are slippery - falling is almost obligatory, but the landing on the forest floor is soft so no "damage" - not even a bruise!
There are toilets and showers (cold) at the two camps, the food provided is authentic and plentiful. Don't forget to bring along your own beer/ wine if that is your dinner drink choice (oh so refreshing after a days hiking!). Insect repellant is a must and if used makes evenings hassle free. We found the wildlife scarce, but what we did see was great. The rainforest and jungle is just as interesting as the wildlife, so even if you don't see any monkeys you will still have a memorable time.
Our thanks, respect and appreciation to our guide Gunie and the Iban tribe at Nunga Sumpa - it was lovley to get a glimpse of - and share - the Sarawak river and jungle world for a short time.
