  • Visited twice this week a great place for birders and photographers saw so many exciting species. Wish that I lived nearer would be there weekly. These two great guys are living the dream and turning back the curse of palm oil production. Good on you Dave and Dave
  • This was a great chance to see several bird species up close. Lots of great photo opportunities. They also offer a 15-30 minute nature walk at the end of the two hours, where they point out various interesting things in the rainforest. They are very knowledgeable about the species they have there. Do note however that the birding experience is limited to just two small viewing locations and there will not be much walking around if you choose not to go on the nature walk at the end.
