The Wilds of Borneo Photographic Tour × × × × × × ×
The Wilds of Borneo Photographic Tour

The Wilds of Borneo Photographic Tour

Join us as we go deep into the jungles of Borneo to photograph it's unique birds, flora and fauna including orangutan and proboscis monkeys. The tour is lead by a professional photographer and local guides. Early bird offer in place now!

Borneo is a diverse Island, made up of 3 countries, Indonesia,Brunei and our destination, the state of Sabah in Malaysia. Sabah has much to offer a photographer from the deep steamy jungles to the long winding waterways and from the mysterious caves to the heights of Mount Kinabalu there are plentiful opportunities to get amazing photos. Sabah offers a varied amount of flora and fauna including the orang-utan, proboscis monkey, hornbills and over 5000 species of flowering plants found nowhere else in the world.



We visit in June when there should be an abundance of fruit and flowers, which should increase our chances of seeing a variety of animals. We are intentionally visiting some remote jungle areas first in the hope of seeing wildlife in their natural environments and then we will visit some rehabilitation centres where will see orang-utan, sun bears and proboscis monkeys so one way or another you will see these wonderful creatures. 

We arrive on the Saturday to start our 12 day experience refreshed on the Sunday morning. We will begin in Kota Kinabalu where we will start with street photography in a bustling market before we visit a cultural village experience with locals in traditional dress bring alive tribal customs and culture before finishing the day with sunset over the bay.


Monday we take an early flight to Lahad Datu on the Eastern Coast where we will meet our guide and driver and venture into the rain forest jungle to experience all that it has to offer. We will be staying within two different National Parks over the next 5 days which are known for a huge variety of flora as well as insects, spiders, birds as well as the chance of the wild animals like orang-utan, gibbon, macaque, otter and pygmy elephant. An early rise and drive deeper into the jungle to the Global Atmosphere Watch (GAW) tower will provide the perfect chance to witness the dawn rising and photograph the early morning mist and listen to the animals waking up and calling loudly to each other across the valley. A night drive will give us the chance to see some of the nocturnal animals like the flying squirrels and the Civet cat


The Kinbanatang river is our next destination where we will do early morning and late afternoon cruises along the river to spot proboscis monkey, gibbons and many other primates (including an orang-utan if we are lucky), as well as crocodile, lizards and plentiful birdlife. With luck we might see pygmy elephants coming down to for a drink or to bathe. The cruise back in the afternoon also provides a beautiful sunset along the river. There is an option to join a night walk when you can get up close with birds whilst they sleep and if you are fortunate see frogs and the tiny western Tasier.


On the drive from the river will we call in at a cave known for the swiftlets that create nests harvested for bird's nest soup. This area is also a favourite haunt of wild orang-utan. They are often spotted here quite close up and can be seen lazing in the canopies during the heat of the day. If you wish to visit the caves this is an optional extra as it is not for everyone. The caves main chamber is massive and with multiple openings which allows the light to filter through giving it a cathedral like atmosphere and great photo opportunities. However, the cave is also home to thousands of bats and insects which over the decades have produced mounds of guano so the smell is quite overpowering. As I said, it's not for everyone but if you wish to go in then Anna-Mair will accompany you. 


We will continue to Sepilok where we will visit the orang-utan rehabilitation centre that works with orphaned and stolen apes. We will visit the centre at least twice seeing the nursery and feeding sessions for the other apes which will attract the orang-utan to coming out of the trees for a feed. We will also visit the Sun bear rehabilitation centre, the Rainforest Discovery Centre and Labuk Bay for an up close experience with the proboscis monkey.

Our adventure will the continue west to Poring Hot Springs where we will photograph the waterfalls and Tropical Gardens where if we are lucky (or unlucky) witness the Rafflesia in flower. This amazing looking flower is one of the largest flowers in the world but is better known as the stinking corpse lily! Whilst in the area we will visit the Anzac Memorial Gardens in Kudisang. Our final full day of photography will be at Mt. Kinabalu National Park that has some lovely forest trails covered with mosses and fungi. We will spend some time in the Botanical Gardens with a variety of orchids and other tropical flowers. Fingers crossed the clouds will clear so we have views of the mountain itself.

We will finish our tour back in Kota Kinabalu.

Love photography and want to be under the crest of a wave without drowning or getting your camera wet? This is the tour for you! Custom dates and private tours can be arranged, please enquire on info@CTLPhototours.com or 0401 840 516



Western Australia is home to some unusual sights one of which is Wave Rock. It is a huge monolithic
striped granite rock with an unusual wave formation formed by centuries of rain and wind situated some four hour drive from Perth. We will drive past huge wheat farms, historic country towns and see many quirky Australiana sculptures. We try to schedule these tours on dark sky nights so that we have the opportunity to photograph the Milky Way or star trails. We also hope to see and photograph some wildflowers including orchids if in season. 

Day one: Our tour  is to the rural area East of Perth is for 3 days/2nights and includes a variety of photographic subjects.  We head to some Wildflower spots before morning tea and then head to the lovely old town of York to spend some time exploring and photographing the architecture. After lunch we will head towards our first overnight stay at Quairading stopping at various spots of interest along the way. 

Our first astro opportunity (weather permitting ) will be at a lake reserve close to Quairading where we will set up for sunset and then astro after dark. We will have a picnic tea in between. 

Day two: We will continue towards Wave Rock, stopping along the way if we see something of photographic interest before arriving at Hyden to photograph some local sculptures.  We will head to the historical Mulka's Cave, which is covered in aboriginal hand print art and explore local area. There will be an opportunity to photograph a rusty old truck before we head to Wave Rock for the base walk to Hippo's Yawn. We will then head to our accommodation to check in and settle in. After dinner we will go back to the foot of Wave Rock to photograph the night sky. We will also do some light painting at the base of Wave Rock.(weather permitting) 

Day three: We will have an early start, photographing dawn over Lake Magic. After breakfast and checking out we will climb the Rock (via a stair case) to photograph from the top of Wave Rock.  We return the Perth via the Tin Horse Highway, which shows Australian country humour and ingenuity, 70 or more horse sculptures made of oil drums and scrap metal either side of the town of Kulin, home to an annual bush horse race. We will stop at other points if time allows before arriving back in Midland by approx 5-6 pm.

Wildflowers and Wildlife Photographic Tour

Wildflowers and Wildlife Photographic Tour

Our 4 night/5 day nature adventure will take us to some of the most beautiful natural spots of West Australia's southern wheatbelt. We will be in search of fauna & flora, photographing orchids, numbats and many other birds and animals.

We will be journeying to some of our favourite wildflower spots around York and Beverley and into some newly discovered bush reserves in search of orchids and other W.A wildflowers around the country town of Narrogin where we will spend 2 nights. We will then move locations to the nearby Dryandra Woodland National Park, a very special pocket of woodland which is home to many endangered animals including Numbats, Woylies, Quendas, and Chuditchs as well has over 100 species of birds. It also has many orchids and other wildflowers growing in the area. On our return we will explore some areas with the Wandoo National Park before arriving back to our pick up point in Perth around 5pm. 


We will be staying in self contained cabins which have 1 or 2 bedrooms. In Narrogin we can offer an alternative option in an ensuite room at the Motel next door which will we offer to those who want their own room who pay the single price. Both locations have bathrooms within the cabins but none of the rooms have ensuite rooms. At Dryandra will be staying in the historic timberman's village run by the Lions in homely wooden cabins originally built to house the families of the timbermen who worked in the Mallet Forest. They are basic but clean and comfortable but this is all about Location, Location, Location! The cottages are in the middle of the National Park and visited frequently by all manner of animals and birds, most have their own possum that lives in the nest box on the verandah. At night if you are lucky some quenda or bush curlew might wonder past, we will certainly hear them after dusk. 

We will organise an evening visit to Barnia Mia which is an enclosed area of bushland which houses several types of critically endangered mammals. They offer a wonderful nocturnal experience where we can photograph bilby, woylie, mala, quenda and boodie. The fence keeps predators such as foxes and feral cats which have had a devastating effect on so many of our native animals and birds. 

We have timed this tour to be during a dark sky period so is we have no cloud we will head away from like pollution to photograph the Milky Way and star trails. If we are unfortunate to have some cloud we will introduce you to light painting which is a lot of fun. 

This small group tour is lead by photographer and tour guide, Anna-Mair Francis who has years of experience taking clients to amazing places around the globe and is known for her patience and good communication skills in simply explaining photographic techniques.
