It is over 35 years since I last visited Borneo.. sporting a full head of hair, a dodgy moustache (by todays standards) and a lot less body fat! On that occasion I was in the recently independent state of Brunei.

This time we are visiting Deramakot Forest Reserve in Malaysian Sabah in the north east of the island, hoping to capture images of their unique and spectacular wildlife including orangutan; sun bear, flying lemur and if we’re very lucky, clouded leopard.

I’m not sure the accommodation is going to be much better, but hopefully the photography will be.

Watch this space for developments.
