The tiny Kingdom of Brunei Darussalam is a hidden jewel in the greater landmass of Borneo. Seldom visited by tourists and especially birders, we will spend quality time in a large tract of protected forest in the Ulu Temburong National Park, known for its healthy populations of hornbills and troops of gibbons and langurs. Access to this park is by boat, where we travel to a wonderful eco-friendly lodge situated in dense rainforest. Another attraction of this park is its an impressive canopy walkway, which offers stunning views over the rainforest and a wealth of birds and primates.
