In August of 2018, biologist Michael Moore and I co-led a two-week Zegrahm wildlife adventure in Borneo, spotting wild orangutans in Danum Valley's dense forest, pygmy elephants among the tall reeds along the Kinabatangan River, and the parasitic Rafflesia 'corpse flower' high on the slopes of Mount Kinabalu.
In August of 2020, we will set off again to explore the natural wonders of terrestrial Borneo, with some adjustments to the itinerary to make the trip even better!
On our new and improved trip, we will be visiting the karst landscape of Mulu National Park, whose caves are home to an estimated 3 million wrinkle-lipped bats. Each evening, the bats put on a spectacular show as they depart the cave system to feed on insects during the night, replaced by daytime-feeding swiftlets that enter the cave to roost at night.
We are also looking forward to again watching troops of probosci's monkeys leap across gaps in the canopy; setting off on forest night walks in the company of frogs, stick insects, and sleeping kingfishers; and patiently waiting for giant squirrels to glide from high in the treetops in Danum Valley.
The trip is limited to 16 guests, an intimate group size that gives us the flexibility to make adjustments on the fly, and to take advantage of opportunities as they arise.
Mike and I are very much looking forward to getting back out into the wilds of Borneo. We hope you'll join us!
