Rumble in the Jungle

A travel blog entry by claireandrich


Danum Valley is situated in the South of Borneo, so it was a long journey get there. Back on the speedboat to the mainland, followed by a bumpy four hour transfer in a minibus to Lahad Datu where we switched to a Hilux and an even bumpier two hour transfer through the rainforest to the Borneo Rainforest Lodge, which is going to be our home for the …

Amazing Orangutans

A travel blog entry by simonandamanda


We woke to another glorious sunny day ready to enjoy our last full day here at Borneo Rainforest Lodge. We met our guide, Mike, at 8 am and set off to follow a trail along the side of the river. However, it was not long before Mike's radio beeped and we were diverted to the other side of the river where there had been a sighting of another mother …

From Tubing to Non-Flying Squirrels!

A travel blog entry by simonandamanda


We had a good night's sleep and this morning the sun is still shining so we are very lucky. After a quick breakfast we met at 8 am with our guide and one other couple to go tubing on the Danum River. After all the previous warnings about long trousers, leech socks, walking sticks etc we set off, as instructed, on this walk to the river in shorts …

Coffins, Elephants and Orangutans!

A travel blog entry by simonandamanda


The rain continued for most of the night but had stopped by early morning. Our guide, Mike, told us to meet for our first activity at 6.30 am. This seemed a bit cruel on the face of it but we did as we were told, even though it meant falling out of bed at 5.50 am! We were soon on our way to the famous Canopy Walkway which we had heard so much about …

Our First Day at Borneo Rainforest Lodge

A travel blog entry by simonandamanda


It was a painful awakening at 4 am but we were up and out in no time, back at the airport and aboard our 6.20 am flight to Lahad Datu. We were there in just under an hour and landed safely at the small, local airport which doesn't even warrant a conveyor belt for the few bags that arrive there, just a small concrete slab where they are dumped for …

    The rooms, amenities and food are excellent, especially considering the remoteness of the location. The staff are all friendly and helpful and the guides are very knowledgeable and make sure that you have every opportunity to see as much wildlife as possible, especially of course, the famous orangutans. Definitely a suberb setting from which to experience the pristine rainforests of Sabah an all they have to offer.
