We are extremely excited about our brand new Borneo Bird Identification Guide! This is the work of our Company Directors Richard and Joanne Swann. After decades of being bird enthusiasts and avid photographers, they have collected a massive amount of bird photos that have been included in all the Borneo Bird Identification Guide! Our team here then added bite-sized information on each bird for even easier identification! We hope that the guide will help Twitchers/bird enthusiasts all over the world to identify the beautiful birds here in Borneo! We will continue to add more into the guide as time goes by and hope you will benefit from it!

New on the blog is our Top 15 Must Try Foods in Kota Kinabalu , you have to try these while visiting Sabah! The compiled list is a great blend of traditional and modern dishes enjoyed by all in Sabah! Of course, there are so many other dishes that are delicious but we can only fit 15 dishes this time! Remember to try these dishes out during your walkabouts in the city Kota Kinabalu, Borneo.
