Action Asia - - REAL DEALS -

BOR­NEO ECO TOURS OF­FERS A SIX-DAY/ five-night Bor­neo Big 5 Wildlife Tour, bring­ing nature lovers up close and per­sonal to the orang utan, pro­boscis mon­keys, croc­o­diles, horn­bills and pygmy ele­phants. The trip kicks off with a visit to the Sepi­lok Orang Utan Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Cen­tre and nearby Bor­neo Sun Bear Conser va­tion Cen­tre for work­shops on the plight and con­ser­va­tion of the great ape and the world’s small­est bears. This is fol­lowed by a river cruise with in-house nat­u­ral­ists to view wildlife and birds. Day three sees a change in species with bats and rap­tors in the Go­man­tong Cave area, and noc­tur­nal an­i­mals in the rain­forests around Bor­neo Lodge. Then t here’s a change of scene to end the trip with a visit to the face of an es­carp­ment hung with an­cient coffins, fol­lowed by a cool­ing dip in rock pools un­der wa­ter­falls. Early morn­ings and long days out in the wilder­ness are eased with the hos­pitabil­ity of the award-win­ning Sukau Rain­for­est Lodge, nes­tled on the banks of Kin­abatan­gan River, for the first three nights; and the equally ac­claimed Bor­neo Rain­for­est Lodge along the Danum River for the last two nights. Bor­neo Eco Tours cost US$1,513 per per­son for groups of four. Read more at www.bor­neoe­co­tours.com/tours/bor­neo-big-5/
