Next Day
Bako National Park provides such rustic campgrounds you feel like you're attending summer camp in the rain forest. The grounds offer cabins with running water, a lodge and restaurant, a boardwalk into the jungle, and clearly marked trails. Looking for rare tropical species is the main activity. We spent our day jungle trekking and peering into the undergrowth for glimpses of fleeting wildlife.
I could've been somebody, I could've been a contender, but look at me, I'm a bum hanging onto a tree.
A wild beared hog knows where to come for a free meal (the hog is the one not wearing a shirt).
Carnivorous pitcher plant - anything that eats big jungle bugs is our friend.
A rare, oversized, racing striped salamander.
