He is certainly fit enough to do Kokoda without his helicopter and hopefully our safari might also turn out to be a ‘reconnaissance’ for the real thing!

A week after our trek with Dr Charlie Teo he was featured on Channel 7 for his work in trying to save orangutans from extinction in the jungles of Borneo – http://au.news.yahoo.com/sunday-night/features/article/-/18129693/charlies-angels
