kittykat23uk posted a topic in WorldwideBornean Mammal Tour 2017 - A Quest For The Elusive Mammals of The Bornean Rainforest Tour Participants: Jo Dale, Margarita Steinhardt, Jens Hauser, Steve Morgan February- March 2017 This trip report is co-authored by Steve Morgan & Jo Dale. It has primarily been prepared for Mammalwatching.com where a pdf version is available. As those of us on ST have more holistic interests I've added to this report to cover birds and other wildlife. It's not in my usual style, but I hope you enjoy it nonetheless. 1 Background I wanted to return to Borneo after seeing several reports of crippling sightings of clouded leopard coming out of a new area called Deramakot Forest Reserve. I had a great deal of annual leave to use up so started canvassing around for people ton join me. After several false starts I was able to arrange the tour through Adventure Alternative Borneo and through them and the forum at Mammalwatching.com was able to find enough people to join me to make the trip viable. Jens Hauser and Margarita Steinhardt signed up to join me and, at the last minute, this trio were joined by Steve Morgan. The logistics on the ground were run by Adventure Alternative Borneo who supplied the guide, Mike Gordon, and drivers, Jonas (Danum Valley) and Lang (Deramakot). The tour was aimed at finding a number of the most difficult and elusive mammals of Borneo. Cats were to be a major objective, in particular Clouded Leopard, Marbled Cat and Leopard Cat, though other desirable species such as Binturong, Sunbear and Orangutan were also very much on the agenda. The main tour ran from 16/2/17 to 3/3/17. The tour took in Danum Valley, the Kinabatangan River, and Deramakot Forest Reserve. Steve only joined the main group for the Deramakot leg, joining the group on 22/2/17 at Telupid. I arrived the night of 12/2/17 and stayed at Hotel Eden 54 in Kota Kinabalu for the first four nights. Steve arrived early and spent the time at Poring and Jens also spent a couple of weeks independently of the group, and at the end of the tour, went on independently to visit Sepilok.
