TripAdvisor Reviews Rimba Lodge Pangkalan Bun
Travel Blogs from Pangkalan Bun
We've done well in terms of injuries and illnesses -- stayed completely healthy, no troubles at all, and no injuries. Haley did get too close to one of the orangutans while doing work in that area. He grabbed a hold of her tank top shirt and bra strap in one quick grab, and wouldn't let go. She pulled back, but he wasn't going to let go, and part of her chest was exposed for a moment. A great majority of the time ...
Ok, it was hot last week -- we knew that going in, prepared for it, and made it through until the weekend of R&R. Now, it's really freakin' hot. Smokin' hot, disgusting hot, and we're melting. Worked hard today, first cleaning orangutan cages and feeding them, and Haley doing the same thing for the Sun Bears. Not too bad there, as we were in the covered areas.

I'll back up a couple days, to our first full day in the "Cat City" of Kuching (Malaysian word for cat).
We did quite well with the 15 hour time change and jet ...
Mulu NP was a massive highlight, but we weren't finished just yet. After 3 days of hiking and exploring (and drinking and eating) it was time to leave. This time we followed the much more common route (ie to the airport) and flew out to Kuching with only a short stop at Miri to pick up our big packs. We'd last seen those almost 5 days ago when they got sent on ahead, and had been living out of increasingly smelly day packs ever since. It was great to finally have ...
