Wild Planet Adventures | Borneo | Weird Wonderful Wildlife 12 Day Borneo

Riverbed Night Hike for Nocturnal Animals In April 2015, Wild Planet Adventures Director Josh Cohen created an exclusive activity at Borneo Rainforest Lodge after noticing that the only open area good for night spotting was on the 4km road going in-and-out of the lodge, which had vehicles of all sizes traveling on it most hours of the day and night, which would scare away many of the more rare and hard-to-find animals. So with the help of BRL's guides and a resident Ranger, Josh figured out a way to hike on an old trail to the east of the Raleigh canopy bridge that runs parallel to the Sungai Segama river, towards the confluence, and then cut back into the riverbed, enjoy a light snack while waiting until it gets dark, and then return via the riverbed.

In the words of founder Josh Cohen, "Since 1991 we have shared many intimate encounters with wildlife that have left us, and our guests, breathless with wonder.

In April 2015 wildlife expert Josh Cohen, Director of Wild Planet Adventures, mounted an extensive two-pronged expedition to Malaysia: first, to scout Borneo's Lost World and then to investigate how to increase the percentage of rare animal sightings on its wildlife-focused tours.
Cohen explains that Maliau Basin Conservation Area is a virtually self-contained ecosystem never inhabited by humans and where large areas still remain unexplored. Efforts are underway to nominate Maliau Basin as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
"It's no wonder Maliau Basin is called the "Lost World. Here you can experience something that is nearly impossible to find anywhere else on earth: the forest floor is so pristine and untouched, if you step off the trail it is likely that no other human will have ever set foot where you are standing! Cohen said.
He added that while wildlife is extremely shy, Maliau Basin Conservation Area offers perhaps the only remotely viable chance to see some of the world's rarest animals including the clouded leopard, sun bear, pygmy elephant, Malaysian badger and the reclusive Bornean rhino.
"Wild Planet travelers will enjoy a nocturnal wildlife walk exclusive to our guests to monitor camera traps, conditions permitting," Cohen said. Wild Planet has made special arrangements with wildlife researchers at Maliau Basin Conservation Area who will share recent camera trap photos of some of these and other rare animals.
Throughout Cohen's Borneo scouting expedition, he and his staff went to great lengths to explore remote areas at unusual times of day, utilizing eco-responsible methods such as electric motor boats, silent safaris and ultra low-impact strategies to assure the best possible chance to spot animals not commonly seen by even the most diligent travelers. They scouted remote tributaries of the Kinabatangan River after midnight, arranged exclusive nocturnal access to wildlife-rich habitat surrounding Gomantong limestone caves, traversed uncharted riverbed trails in the Danum Valley and made special arrangements with scientific researchers to hike into remote camera trap destinations in Maliau Basin Conservation Area.
"The results were staggering," he said.
