Memorable parts? I can't name only one!! If I really had to choose, I'd say the Borneo rainforest lodge in Danam Valley. Stunning location, amazingly helpful and knowledgeable staff and beautifully maintained lodges. Could not fault it. Tips? Even in the dry season, leech socks are necessary for Tabin and Danum Valley. Buy buy them there, not online. MUCH cheaper! This is a BUSY schedule involving very early mornings most days, as that's when you're most likely to see wildlife.... (more)Liz Carr

Seeing all the wildlife was great especially for the kids -- monkeys & wild boar at Bako National Park, Semenggoh Orangutans' Center, & seeing the Irawaddy Dolphins on the Santubong Wildlife Cruise. And the rainforest kayaking was definitely fun for the whole family. For my 14 yr old daughter, she would say that having her half drunk can of Lychee drink stolen by a Macaque monkey at Bako was the highlight. (more)Alison Symons

Memorable parts? There were so many highlights. However our encounters with the local flora & fauna; orangutans, proboscis monkeys, macaque monkey, array of frogs, and pitcher plants were amazing. Tips? The accomodation ranges from rustic to above average so be prepared. The rustic accommmodation could have been better maintained (a government / national park issue rather than a Paradesa issue) to improve the overall experience. However it was in a lovely natural environment.... (more)Sandra Deans

Every thing promised is delivered, but some times you have to just accept there will be delays. Local benefits? Yes. Local guides, hotels, restaurants and traders all gained from my spend. This supported conservationism by entrance fees, and donations to Orangutans. Overall rating? Really enjoyable.... (more)John Roy Dewell
