The Borneo Adventure Roundup

From leeches in the jungle to island delights.

From rivers with monkeys to sanctuaries with orangutans and sun bears.

Borneo was a mixed bag with definite highs and a few lows. It was an adventure trip I’d been wanting to do for a long time. I love seeing wildlife in their natural habitat and I’ve now realised that when I plan trips I need to remember that and really question whether group tours are ever the way to go.
