"We are still basking in the glow of this trip, one of our best ever. Makes me wonder now why on earth I put off Borneo for so long."
"The orangutans, monkeys, and other wildlife were special. I enjoyed the orangutan rehab centers as we were able to see orangutans up close. I especially enjoyed Turtle Island. The whole sequence of laying eggs, to burying eggs, to releasing baby turtles was fascinating."
"Of all my many adventures through the years I was expecting the most out of this trip—looking forward to the orangutans as well as the uniqueness that most destinations just can’t offer. Somehow, you far exceeded anything I could have hoped for!"
"I rarely find people where I say "wow that person is perfect for this job!" I absolutely said that about Brad. His enthusiasm for the trip/country/subject and his ability to share relevant content for us all to learn from made the trip both exciting and informational. I learned so much. Brad also has a great sense of humor which made the trip fun, too. Brad's passion for nature and the environment is inspiring. He's great!"
"We saw more than I ever expected--lots of wild orangutans, including moms with babies, males and females interacting and one making his night nest. We also saw swimming macaques, pygmy elephants in the river, millions of bats emerging from the cave and two giant flying squirrels in flight. Amazing."
"Honestly, there wasn't anything that I did not enjoy about this trip. NatHab exceeded my expectations in every way. I approached the trip with an open mind but also a discerning eye in terms of value for money. As someone who has planned a lot of solo trips, I often catch myself wondering on a group tour whether I could have done the same trip myself for far less money. This trip was one in which I absolutely felt that I got outstanding value for my travel dollar and could not have replicated such an incredible experience on my own. And, again, I have to mention that being on an expedition led by John is one that simply can not be improved upon. While every aspect of this trip was terrific, I can unequivocally attribute my interest in doing more NatHab trips to him. If your other leaders are anything like John, I know that I could not get a better travel experience with any other tour operator."
"I had high expectations for Borneo and was keen to go. In spite of this, my expectations were exceeded--not an easy thing to do. Lots of travel in this one, but can't think of one thing I would leave out in hindsight. Animals and birds absolutely FANTASTIC!! I've been to 23 countries so far...this among my finest trips. Stood up to my NatHab expectations of knowing I"m going to be on a thoughtfully prepared itinerary, well planned logistically, superbly guided trip. Whatever you're doing, keep on doing it. Your product is outstanding!"
Borneo was an amazing trip, and honestly, one I would go back and do again in a heartbeat. I loved it so much. It was one of the top two trips that I have ever done, and I have traveled quite a bit over the years all over the world. As always Brad's knowledge about the area, plants, insects, birds and wildlife in the places that he guides is quite impressive. I mean seriously, it is mind blowing, and his obvious passion for what he does and his work shines through. And once again, he was so helpful and patient with all of us that were trying to take pictures. I have to say the local guide there were awesome, too. In Mulu, I loved Nelson and the stories that he told that went back decades--wow, I found him fascinating. It was an amazing trip!"
"John's passion for Borneo and its wildlife, people and plants was contagious. He had a GREAT sense of humor which made the trip fun. I learned so much from John, as well as my fellow travelers. I have traveled on many guided trips over the past 45 years and he is the best guide I've come across."
"John's range of subject matter was astounding. Whether it be animals, birds, fish, plants, insects, or rocks, he could answer any question in great detail. He was extremely pleasant to be around and genuinely cared about the experiences being provided each traveler. He was highly organized and kept us all on track--and made it look easy (which of course it wasn't). I would gladly travel with John again."
"The Borneo wildlife is exceptional. I got to see so much. The sea turtle experience was one particular highlight. Also because of Brad's special relationship with the Sun Bear Conservation Center in Sepilok, we were allowed into special viewing areas normally restricted. This was so special and enhanced the experience exponentially!"
