Tabin Wildlife Reserve is a place to visit for everyone, the guides were really inspiration in their love of nature, the place where you can really get close to the animals... seeing the monkeys cross the river above my lodge or spotting an otter from my balcony is hardly an experience you can get anywhere else.

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? Seeing the orang-utans, especially in wild when taking the morning river cruise. Second best was the foodie tour of Kual Lumpur. Tips? Relax on the trip. 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

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.
