Borneo was a trip to remember, made extra special thanks to our excellent, knowledgeable guide, Beverly. Perfect mix of wildlife and culture, from wild orangutans, pygmy elephants, boat trips, snorkelling & seeing first hand the threat to the natural world. Kids aged 8 & 10 loved it. Highly recommended.
