Borneo Tours & Vacations

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.

I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to explore the wildlife and culture of Borneo. Stephanie's passion and enthusiasm for her country made the trip so much more enjoyable. We also managed to see wild orangutans, proboscis monkeys, crocodiles and loads of incredible birds.

Sabah Adventure

Amazing trip! Talia was an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide! We saw so much wildlife - incredible. Would not waste your money on the single supplement though (you're not given priority. I slept two nights in bunk beds with 3 other people whilst someone who didn't pay for the supplement had their own room). Although, overall amazing trip. Would recommend :)
