"We are here at the Kinabatangan River to see the Borneo ‘Big 5’ - Orangutan - Crocodile - Pygmy Elephant - Proboscis Monkey and the Hornbill. We were so lucky to see ALL of them in the wild including this herd of adorable Pygmy Elephants feeding along the riverbank." Sarah & James.
"Sepilok is home to the Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, caring for Orangutans that have sadly lost their homes due to deforestation for Palm Oil. Palm oil has been a real issue and highlighted recently in the controversial Iceland supermarket advert. Now there are much stricter rules and we loved seeing these amazing creatures up close and personal playing and happy in their natural habitat." Sarah & James
Highlights of A Lovely Planet's stay at Knai Bang Chatt Resort in Kep, Cambodia.
Knai Bang Chatt is situated in Kep, a resort town in southern Cambodia. The town was once the go-to destination for the Cambodian and French elite but fell into disrepair during the rule of the Khmer Rouge. It’s now making a comeback, and Knai Bang Chatt is the most luxurious hotel in town.
"Diving is really relaxing, even therapeutic. Gliding weightlessly in the water passing colourful corals and interesting creatures. Every dive is different and sometimes you see creatures you never knew existed. This is a cuttlefish!" Sarah & James. Diving with Downbelow Marine & Wildlife Adventures.
