Photographer's Note

Merimbun Lake is Brunei's largest. Because of the country's vast oil wealth, most of Brunei's lakes, rivers and jungles are well protected, especially compared to neighbouring Malaysia and Indonesia where logging has scarred the landscape.

Because of its isolated location, Merimbun sees very few tourists - foreign or local - but it is frequently visited by biologists who study the lake's diverse ecology. The boats pictured here are found on the shore of the scientific research compound.
