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

Sabah Adventure was exactly what it promised to be, the nature in Borneo is amazing and Sabah has great conservation ideals. We spent time exploring the jungles looking for creatures big and small and we were not disappointed. A magical Adventure

Fantastic tour that will make you fall in love with Borneo! This trip gives you an insight into some of the highlights of Sabah (without having to drive too long from one place to another) and its beautiful culture, nature -and most impressively - wildlife!

Wild Sarawak

Samantha · Traveled June 2024
Fantastic trip with an excellent leader - rody. Very enthusiastic and has a passion for helping you have the best time on your trip, thank you to him. The 4 days in mulu and camp 5 were by far my favourite though a bit of advice: pack lightly for those days!! The walk is hot, humid and in our case - incredibly muddy and ill defined path ways, with lots of trees to climb over etc. It was challenging and made more so with the extra weight on our backs. If I could do that 4 days again I’d have taken 2 pairs of shorts and some sports bras and that is it. Was easier to wash in the river than the showers there, and take ear plugs as the shared accommodation can get loud with snoring ;) and you really need your sleep for the next day! Would very much recommend this trip, it had a bit of everything. We went in late June and it was BOILING - girls, take sports wear etc, denim shorts are not the one ( as I found out far too late!). Would also recommend getting a personal fan for the public transport, especially the public transport - which was very hot
