Take a walk on the wildside…

Fancy hanging out with some red leaf monkeys, exotic rhinocerous hornbills and more than a little magic?

No I’m not going on about orangutans again I promise! I have discovered that there is so much more to Borneo than our closest relative as far as species go…

The 480 metre Canopy Skywalk in the Mulu National Park hangs over a primary forest that is over 500 years old. The world’s longest tree-based canopy walk,this Skywalk is suspended around 20 metres above the forest floor and was built by local communities with expert advice on design and structure. This is a world where the Jacuzzi is courtesy of nature and the Gara Fish pedicure simply a happy addition to your swim! Should I mention that (anti) leech socks really exist and are a good idea on this trip?

Yes Borneo has turtles, proboscis monkeys, fantastic diving and great caves well … let’s rephrase that: Deer Cave is the world’s largest natural rock chamber and can contain London’s St. Paul Cathedral five times over.  Never seen St Paul’s …o.k. how about a space that can fit 40 Boeing 747s side by side? But I digress! But if you can pick only one thing to do in Borneo then you must takea walk on the wild rainforest side.
