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.

Classic Borneo

David · Traveled May 2024
A well-organized trip, led by a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. We saw all the wildlife we came for and then some! Good food and accomodation too. A very enjoyable trip all round.

Real Borneo

Lisa · Traveled May 2024
I would highly recommend this trip if you are looking for a budget friendly and packed itinerary to explore Borneo’s Sabah region. I had so much fun and got to see so much wildlife -including Pygmy elephants and wild Orangutans. It was a very well organised trip ans also catered for me as a vegetarian.

Sabah Adventure

Sarah · Traveled May 2024
This really was the trip of a lifetime! A great mix of wildlife, learning about the local way of life, hiking, spa time and history. I felt completely free of stress as our trip leader took care of everything, with plenty of fun sprinkled in.

Sabah Adventure

Helen · Traveled May 2024
The Sabah Adventure was absolutely incredible. From summating Mt Kinabalu, to Poring Hot Springs, a village home stay, river safari’s along Kinabatangan river, night jungle walks, Turtle Island, spotting all the amazing wildlife & immersing in local culture & cuisine. Take only pictures, leave only footprints. Breathtaking!
