“The exhilaration of travelling and working as a team lead by the X-Men teams are truly awsome. Furthermore; the satisfaction are enhance by an appreciation of their self sufficiency and leadership quality. Thus, we were able to shrugged off most challanges mother nature has presented… Its hard to conclude every single details but I feel we will remember the adventures we have been through.”

~ Eliza n Rosa Othman (Malaysia)

keith-mcgibbon“You won’t get the opportunity to go into the Malaysian jungle in such a challenging, remote, rewarding and organised package unless Ah Tek and Alyna organise it. It is a unique experience and you get the sense you are doing something special. You skip meals, drive all night, sweat it out in the sun with swarms of bees, join chain gangs, stand in rivers in the middle of the night digging a bank of mud; but we’ll all sign up for more which says everything about this trip. Roll on the sequel.”

~ Keith McGibbon (UK/Italy)


“Tough trucks, a motivated team. Spectacular location, a challenging set of obstacles and  the best possible leadership. This was one of the most fantastic 4×4 trips I’ve ever done and certainly the format which I would love to repeat”

” of all the off-road places in the world the Elephant Mud Hole will instantly evoke stories of ’remember when’.
X-Man Rate de Silva and jungle woman extrodinaire, Alyna Tai, have the utmost trust and loyalty from their group of friends for any expedition, it’s no wonder we wanted to join him. It was the adventure of adventures, going in blind, no recce and taking what mother nature gave us. We made it closer to the EMH than any group for 3 years, ouldn’t have missed it for the world… I’ll be back for more……”

“I would like to say that this has been one the 7 wonders that I’ve done in my life…It was a tremendously nerve wrecking,bone shaking and mind blowing experience for me. 00 with his skills and ability to accommodate,assist,guide and rescue was extra ordinary. Not forgetting the whole team and all their guidance and hard work to make this whole event a successful one! The leadership is the one that makes the whole team perform beyond their call of duty.”

I would like to thank everyone especially Atek, Alyna and Rambeer for giving me this opportunity and introducing me to the world of “OFF ROADING”.

~ Majorie Peters (Malaysia)

“I caught Jungle Fever!! and I have Ah Tek and Alyna to thank! Amazing 4×4 Experience.”
~ Linus Liew (UK)

shaharul-zain“The last time I passed through the mudhole was in RFC 2005 and the time last through places like Rocky hill and piece of cake was 2000…long ago now it seems. So this time around, I felt a lot of anticipation to revisit them again. While we did not make it through the entire route, it was more due to lack of time than lack of spirit. I think for me, the trip was made truly special by the presence of many old friends – going four wheeling just like how we used to do once upon a time. Thanks to 00 and 01 for inviting me on an event that Malayan Safari is proud to support”
~ Shaharul Zain aka Mike Sierra (Malaysia)
