Review of "Tropical Research & Conservation Centre, Semporna"
TRACC Borneo project is a great Gap Year experience, Pom Pom Island is offshore from Semporna in Sabah at the North of Borneo. The famous island of Sipadan i only 70km away and Pom Pom is just what you dream of for a romantic or getaway holiday . It is a white sand beautiful offshore island with blue blue sea and lots of turtles and colourfull fishes. I saw barracuda, bumphead parrotfish and lots of Nemo.
The instructors taught me to dive and I had lots of fun doing it.
Recommended for anyone who wants to go underwater. Especially if you are into conservation. Thats what TRACC does - we planted lots of reef. Great fun.
Accommodation is in tents -comfortable rainproof tents with a real bed, a fan and electricity.
I stayed for 6 weeks which was great but not enough. The staff were teaching the marine science A level course when I was there and I would like to go back and do that. A real A level the same as at school except on a fantastic beach.
If I died and go to heaven, this is what I want it to be like.
