Wildlife safari, Malaysia - Jul 15 - Jul 26, 2018
An unbelievable trip of a lifetime. Through Kimkim, Sticky Rice we’re able to put together a truly unique experience. Although some details weren’t exactly clear before travelling (some confusion over one accommodation) when I arrived the whole trip ran like clockwork. I can’t recommend Sticky Rice and each of their staff more, and without KimKim I wouldn’t have found them.
Borneo trip, Malaysia - Sep 10 - Sep 10, 2017
Our guide was well informed but sometimes didn't seem very interested in answering our questions. He was a bit impatient when we wanted to wait to see animals. Otherwise, we loved it!
