The tour was excellent. Really well organised at short notice. It was all that we expected. Have already recommended Reef and Rainforest to friends. Danum Valley was the best – close up views of Orangutans, numerous frogs and birds we hadn’t seen before. A monitor lizard in the river by our lodge was about 6 inches long and quite a surprise.
