Borneo Wildlife holiday Review
As a frequent traveler to Africa for wildlife safari and adventure I decided to expand my horizons and explore other parts of the world. It was decided to start with South East Asia. In Africa I have enjoyed an incredible and life changing encounter with the Mountain Gorillas of Rwanda, a bike ride across Botswana and completed a summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro. I hoped for a similar experience in South East Asia but I was not sure where to start.
After considerable research and reference checks I selected Natural World Safaris to plan my next great adventure. I was not disappointed. My custom Borneo Wildlife and Jungle Adventure developed with NWS’s Jessica Tiffin exceeded all expectations and I have a new favorite place to travel.
After a long flight from California I was met by Issac who would be my competent driver for the next 10 days and was promptly taken to the Horizon Hotel in Kota Kinabalu. Excellent accommodations with a full gym and a roof top pool overlooking the city and bay. Just what I needed after a long flight.
Day 1 was a bicycle ride above the coast towards Kudat and the north most tip of Borneo.
My bicycling partner, guide, mountaineer and soon to be buddy was Miki Mike. We enjoyed a scenic and very satisfying ride up the coast and refreshments at the tip of Borneo. But the days adventure was not over I would spend the night in a local Rungus Longhouse and enjoy some cultural immersion and food.
I made merry into the night with the indigenous tribe, learned a new dance step and was treated like Royalty.
