What? I was in the jungle and it was very hot and sticky in there.
Don’t worry I’m wearing my boxers (and I’m not looking at pictures of naked ladies). I’m not sure why I’m wearing my socks though.
Where is Bako National Park?
Where we stayed
Bako National Park
The accommodation at Bako wasn’t very salubrious as you can see. In fact, it was as rough as a bears arse but when you are travelling it’s amazing what you’ll put with because you are having such a good time.
I hope things have improved since we were last there. Sometimes you just have to slum it when you are on the road. To be fair the lodge we moved to the next night was a bit better.
There was an almighty storm the night these photos were taken and the electricity supply kept cutting out. I seem to remember Serena and me spent the evening playing Travel Scrabble by torch light.
The next day the weather cleared up a bit but we were plagued by Monkeys on our porch.
Here’s a kinky Monkey sniffing Serena’s bra.
We also had Sammy Snake slithering outside our lodge.
You also get very large and dangerous saltwater Crocodiles in the sea and mangroves surrounding Bako National Park. Unfortunately, we didn’t see any but they are there.
There was a slight squeaky bum moment when the boat that dropped us off at Bako moored about 50 feet from the shore meaning we had to wade in to the beach. I felt sure we were being watched by a big salty under the murky sea water so we didn’t hang around.
There’s also loads of Proboscis monkeys knocking around so there’s plenty of wildlife to see. We had one that hung around the back of our lodge for a while. We also had a family of Wild Boars that used to visit us on a regular basis.
I can really recommend Bako National Park it’s well worth the visit.
