Home to the oldest rainforest on the planet, blanketed by a diverse tapestry of rivers and caves, and overlooked by the imposing Mt Kinabalu, Borneo offers an adventure setting unlike any other. Boasting an unrivaled range of biodiversity anywhere else in South-East Asia, a holiday in Borneo offers the kind of wildlife encounters that travellers come from all around the world to witness – be it the rehabilitation of the orphaned orangutans at Sepillok or the after-dark parade of turtles as they dig out their nests on the sandy beaches – these are experiences that are guaranteed to intrigue and delight.
