COOL JUNGLE TREK IN CROCODILE TERRITORY!

OR, GOING WILD WITHOUT A GUIDE IN BAKO NATIONAL PARK BORNEO

The beach. Reward after the trek but sadly no sight of Mr Crocodile

Gimme some wild savage land and I’ll show you a happy woman. (Oh and a map that tells you what colours to follow for easy, medium or hard routes. I’ll still screw up but still be very happy!!!)

Morning boat to the park entrance.

After ghastly Kuching, I sped along the motorway in a cab at the crack of dawn to go to my pickup point for the Bako National Park. The place is a simple cafe where you grab much-needed caffeine and a life jacket then jump into a boat to go to a remote section of the park designed, in hopefully a foolproof way, for a wonderful jungle trek for all levels of difficulty. The boat ride which lasted about half an hour took us past fabulous rock formations and mangroves leading to dense jungle.

BOATS, SEA, SAND AND WET THINGS.

OR THIS IS ON MY MAIN SITE WHICH NAUGHTY OLD BIRDS ARE NOT READING. BAD BAD BIRDIES. I’VE ADDED SOME BITS, BUT THIS IS THE GENERAL IDEA FOR THOSE HOT WET TRIPS!!

Riding up to volcano in the midday sun.

Alert: In preparation for us escaping and flying free again.

The wet bits section…..

Nature reserve near Kuching at the end of the hike. No people swimming as a crocodile had been seen there that morning

Down and dirty at the beach. Swimming, snorkelling, diving, boogie boarding or just plain sunbathing? Onboard a boat for some fishing as well? Climbing and trekking around the coastline? Gazing out to sea? Breath in that air and get ready for your wet bits!
