Borneo is wild and wonderful where you get to experience a culture different to any norm, a landscape that is thick with the fantastic beauty of a dense jungle and interesting wild life.

Traveling through the Sarawak region of Borneo included leeches and spiders, orangutans, monkeys, and bats. My hair served as a natural defense system (killing bees), and I was hot, sweating, and tired a lot of the time. I was also incredibly happy - this was one of the best trips of my life. The people and places, food and culture escape words - people just need to go and experience Sarawak on their own!

This trip was much more physically demanding than I expected, and I consider myself to be pretty fit. You will stagger sweatily along jungle tracks, gulping at your water bottle, cursing yourself for packing too much, but you will see some amazing sights - caves which make you think you've landed on Mars, proboscis monkeys hurling themselves through the branches of the jungle, the traditional longhouse hospitality of the Iban people, and the cheers of your fellow travellers as you make it to the other side of the river over a single rope bridge. Worth it? You bet!

Make sure your river shoes stay on on their own. Thongs will NOT do. Also make sure your day pack has a hip strap. You'll be carrying it to Camp 5 and away again with 5 days of supplies in, so keep that weight off your shoulders.

Wild Sarawak is an awesome adventure. Every day I was simply overwhelmed by my experiences. The plants, the insects, the people are all so amazing. Fireflies in the evening walks. A boat ride down a river and riding the rapids was not on the itinerary but a welcome experience. Snorkelling in warm waters through a coral reef. The governors birthday celebrations woke us up with cannon balls firing and marching bands. Thank you Intrepid, loved every minute of it.

The trip was physically demanding and the high humidity made it even more so. I was one of the older people on the trip and I did physical preparation in the lead up to the trip and I think this was important in helping me to cope with the conditions and made the trip more enjoyable. Take an umbrella, or buy one there!

Great experience for people who like watching wild life. Except for climbing mount Kota Kinabalu and walking Headhunters trail not too much physical effort. Interesting historical monuments, homestay experience.

This trip is a great mix of physical activity, cultural study, environmental understanding - do it! Fantastic value for money as well and by going with Intrepid you get to places that otherwisw might be near impossible or at the least you could spend some long and frustrating hours organising when you could actually be experiencing it
