What an amazing experience this was for us - we were totally overwhelmed with the peace and calm of this beautiful most special and ancient place on the planet.
As keen naturalists we were able to enjoy at least 5 days in this place - we had a superb cook, good basic accommodation and the ancient Borneon rainforest to explore.
We were lucky enough to see 16 otters one early morning on the river banks fishing - many unusual birds and a variety of primates we've never seen before including, the red leaf monkey and the silver leaf monkey with babies, the amazing Gibbon, the unusual buck, butterflies and wild orchids and the highlight the wild orangatangs which we got so close to - a female who was intent on only eating and not too bothered about us. The huge giant hornbill birds were another highlight. The jungle noises are amazing and something out of this world as soon as the sun sets
The pygmy elephants are not so easy to see but we saw those as well on our way out of the jungle. This is a trip of lifetime which comes highly recommended if you enjoy wildlife and have patience and a good camera and a good pair of binoculars. The disadvantages: extreme humidity and leeches is nothing to worry about.
