After being very pleased with the 20 day trip planned with Donna to Madagascar last year, I returned to them to plan a three week trip to Borneo in November 2015. After a chat with Jack about my interests and available options, he organized a fabulous agenda leading to another great experience. On return, I learned that I had to take the week between Christmas and New Year's day off, so I went back to Audley and within a week working with Claire, I had confirmation on an exciting six day trip to Nicaragua - that's service!

Lankayan Island is a great destination and your typical 'Robinson Crusoe' island situated about one and a half hours of the coast of Sandakan in the Sulu Sea.

Due to its close proximity to Turtle Island you are likely to see many turtles when you are snorkelling or diving on the house reef and the resort also has a small hatchery where you can see hatchlings being released into the sea.

This small idyllic island is a great place to spend a few days relaxing before continuing your wildlife experience.

Sandoway Resort, Ngapali

I recommend staying at - Sandoway Resort

First Class

Sandoway Resort located on Ngapali beach in the Bay of Bengal, Myanmar, is arguably one of the best resorts in the area with miles of pristine sand and very few tourists in comparison to the more developed beach destinations of Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia. The resort is the ideal place to end your trip with a few days rest and relaxation in this intriguing and colourful country.

I'll never forget when…

Bako National Park covers 2,742 hectares of a rugged sand stone peninsula to the east of the Bako River near Kuching, the capital of Sarawak. Millions of years of erosion have created an impressive and breathtaking coastline of steep cliffs, rocky headlands and stretches of white, sandy bays. Wave erosion at the base of the cliffs has carved many of the rocks into fantastically shaped sea arches and seastacks.

The coastline is also dotted by a sandstone cliff vegetation characteristic of Bako. Other major vegetation types include the mangrove forest, mixed dipterocarp forest, peat swamp forest, kerangas (heath) forest, and kerangas scrub on the plateau; it's possible to see just about every type of vegetation found on Borneo at Bako National Park.

Well worth a visit even to experience the novel way to enter the park- from the sea.
