Borneo Tours & Holidays

Anthropologists, adventure-seekers and animal lovers alike are drawn to Borneo’s steamy jungles, blissful mountains, balmy beaches and peaceful villages.

These tropical shores have a glorious diversity. Float down the Kinabatangan River, the most biologically diverse rainforest in the world; see the sun rise over Mt Kinabalu; meet mischievous orangutans in Sepilok; chow down on a tasty laksa or take in the incredible underwater scenery snorkelling in Tunku Abdul National Marine Park. Borneo’s wild bounty awaits.

Sabah Adventure

David · Traveled February 2024
This trip exceeded my wildest expectations. The itinerary is excellent, our leader was superb, and we had the best luck in terms of weather and a great group of travelers from many different ages and backgrounds. Definitely physically challenging climbing Mount Kinabalu, but that’s part of what made it great. The animals and nature were exceptional. First rate trip!

Sabah Adventure

Jemma-Lee · Traveled February 2024
This trip was a complete emotional, mental and physical reset allowing us to push outside our comfort zones, open our hearts and minds to everything borneo has to offer. Hiking mount Kinabalu was physically and mentally challenging but an unbelievable achievement. The culture, history and environmental insights were so special to carry away with us too.

Premium Borneo in Depth

Clancie · Traveled January 2024
This trip is fabulous and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is probably a bit more physical than you would think from the score and some accomodation is very basic but the experience was really fantastic.
