Discover Borneo, one of the wildest places on the planet
Journey to Borneo’s wild heart on a twelve-day Premium adventure. With its dense rainforests, tropical coastal islands and mysterious jungle valleys, Borneo is an incomparable destination. Encounter nature in its truest form, with a rich variety of colourful and endangered wildlife amidst amazing natural scenery. This trip to the jungles of Sabah and Sarawak brings you face to face with many unique species, including orangutans, proboscis monkeys and hornbills. Uncover the country’s secrets with an expert local leader, witness ancient traditions of the native people and watch local life unfold in front of you.
Learn how to live off the land and forage for food in the rainforest, followed by an unforgettable cooking class where your freshly picked ingredients will be turned into an incredible meal.
Surround yourself with rich wildlife and wonderful creatures during two nights at the stunning and perfectly located Kinabatangan Wetland Resort, your feature stay accommodation.
Visit beautiful endangered orangutans at the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, meet the Malaysian sun bear and take multiple cruises down the Kinabatangan in search of wildlife.
Gain unique insight into the Iban way of life when you stay in a jungle lodge in the rainforests of Batang Ai, visit a traditional longhouse and chat to the locals about their culture.
Get a taste of Borneo’s diverse food scene at the food courts of Kuching, native markets in Lachau, food stalls stalls in Kota Kinabalu and seafood restaurants in Sandakan.
With internal flights, spend less time travelling and more time taking in the wildlife and natural beauty of your destinations. Travelling light is essential, as the included domestic flights have a strict 15kg maximum for check in luggage.
The accommodation varies from hotels to a jungle lodge. The jungle lodge may be a little more basic than our standard hotels. The unique location and close proximity to wildlife is what makes the jungle lodge special.
There will be a few walks included on this trip on forested paths that can get wet and slippery. Shoes with a good grip are highly recommended, and will also be useful for getting in and out of low rise long tail boats.
